I have to say I agree with the conclusions you've drawn. Some doctors (not nearly enough, though) are very much in love with clonazepam for no reason other than its extremely wide range of usefulness, low risk of abuse, and high rate of effectiveness in their patients. My pdoc is one of those people -- he's said to me on more than one occasion that he doesn't know what he'd do if clonazepam weren't around. Guess that's why he doesn't mind at all that I take 8mg/day and is in fact very encouraging about it. The majority of his patients are being treated for AD/HD, but about half are being treated for anxiety (often in addition to AD/HD). I'm treated for both myself, and my pdoc says clonazepam is *always* his first choice of medication whenever a patient comes in presenting with symptoms of an anxiety disorder. He says he's never had any problems with patient abuse of clonazepam (that he knows of -- stimulants are another story entirely though, of course), and any patients whom he's had to withdraw from the drug for whatever reason were invariably able to do so without incident under his strict protocol. FWIW, he also believes in the neuroprotective qualities of clonazepam due to it's antagonism of excitatory neurotransmission.
