It seems so simple I don't know why I never thought of it before, I guess b/c Klonopin was just something I envied for like 2 years until I finally saw a doc that would prescribe it- but my p-doc suggested switching to Xanax or Valium for my social anxiety, given that the Klonopin's effects on my social anxiety only really lasted for a few months.

I have a very good memory, so I can't say Klonopin ever affected it at all... in fact, benzos will increase your IQ if you have a clinically signifigant degree of anxiety to begin with. I tried to explain this to my p-doc, but he gave me a funny look and thought I meant that Klonopin was some smart drug. But I browsed the American Textbook of Psychopharmacology, and it said the same thing I tried to explain to him. Anxiety itself can impair intelligence, memory, and generally make you ridiculious. Anyone who has an anxiety disorder knows this as common sense.
