Looks like it's easy enough to get online without a prescription, but I don't know what the legalities are with regard to importing it.

If you're currently dependent on clonazepam and hoping to quit benzos entirely, the preferred method is to switch to diazepam then taper. Its long half life allows you to drop the dose gently without getting withdrawal effects. A sympathetic GP might prescribe a couple of weeks' worth of diazepam, particularly one who specialises in drug dependency. Or perhaps they could refer you to a specialist centre.

But in terms of getting a benzo (particularly an off-label one) prescribed long-term for anxiety, it'll almost certainly be a non-starter. The NHS is VERY paranoid about the risk of dependency from benzos.
