Klonopin was working well for me for 10 years, no signs of addiction and dependance. She knows this but she is in a different office now and they frown on Benzos. Should i believe her? Do i let her take away something that has done me a world of good?
Why did my mental health provider want me to stop taking Klonopin before joining her...

It seems to me that there is a new ideology regarding benzos in general about how harmful they are. But in certain circumstances I think they do more good than harm. Also, it may be dangerous to discontinue clonazepam after chronic use due to the high risk of seizures. Nor have I seen any reports about feeling better after discontinuation. That is what concerns me the most. Personally, I think a study of the history of the patient and the dose over how long, is merited. Close monitoring and medical justification would be helpful.
