I have been on Klonopin for 7 years, max 1 mg. It is a life saver, and I would not be here today if it wasn't for it. I have never read anything on long term effects, nor has anyone I have ever talked to ever said there were long term cognitive effects.

I have been having issues with memory recall for a while, but I don't know if it is Klonopin or not. My Pdoc has said in 40 years he has never had anyone with any real cognitive problems from Klonopin. I think it is more of me hyperfocusing that my memory is not pristine, amonghst other factors.

As for it's addictiveness, if you wean off it, you can get off any drug. I tried getting off to see what kind of cognitive effects it would have on my memory, and even after dropping half a mg I started having panic attacks again. Anyone who has said they have issues getting off, and state their symptoms, they are symptoms of having panic attacks again, not withdrawl symptoms.
