> Klonopin may decrease serotonin turnover in the raphe nucleus and hippocampus. I personally think that the effects of benzodiazepines are mediated for the most part by mechanisms that do not involve monoamines.

Clonazepam is somewhat of a black-sheep, though. It possesses therapeutic properties that are unique to the BZDs. I am just wondering if the 5-HT properties don't confer its anti-manic, mood-stabilizing and occasional depressogenic effects.
