> I have been taking Klonopin for several weeks and it has helped greatly with my anxiety. Unfortunately it started causing a depression that I haven't felt for some time. Does anyone have an opinion of an alternative that might be better in that regard? I get the impression that Klonopin is more "PC" than others although my Pdoc is usually open to suggestions. Thanks for your help.

Klonopin is known to have a depressive effect in some users. For myself, I was on Paxil and Klonopin and during that period suspended the use of Paxil. Both times I eventually had a depressive episode. Perhaps it was related to the Klonopin, perhaps not. However, taking a AD in combination with Klonopin that does not cause anxiety is a good idea.
