I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder with panic attacks and agoraphobia almost 20 years ago. I probably have been on ever antidepressant SSRI, SNRI, Mood Stabilizer, Benz, etc... after finally finding the combination that works for me which is Lexapro and Klonopin... after getting taken off Lexapro I just take Klonopin 1mg prescribed 3 times a day but I take as needed. I have been reading that long term use of Klonopin can cause dementia. I would love to know if anyone has actually witnessed this or knows if this is true? It scares me to death...
Crazydayz; No I have not seen that listed and it has been out long enough for long term studies I would not even worry about that, The biggest thing is getting off of it which is not in your plans so don't worry about it. With the condition, you have all we do is look for thing to cause us more anxiety. When you're into your doctor next time talk to the doctor if it's been around 20 years and you're ok that should be proof enough.
