> Has anyone used Klonopin for anxiety for say - one year - and who was able to taper off w/o problems?

I've used clonazepam(Klonopin) for many years in doses of 2mg and higher. I recently took three months to taper off of 2mg. Clonazepam has been a good augmenter of Nardil for my treatment resistant atypical depression and social anxiety. However, I noticed that my memory problems were getting worse after years on the medication.

The taper was really no problem until about the last .5mg. I probably should have switched to a less powerful benzo that still has a long half life, such as diazepam(Valium). But after tapering to .25mg every other day for a week, I just quit. I did have some residual anxiety and insomnia for a couple of weeks, but these are getting better now.

I just hope my memory comes back. I'm 51, which is a little to young for senility.
Be Well.
