Hi, wondering if anyone has any long-term experiences with Clonazepam (known down here as Rivotril and as Klonopin in the US) to report? My doctor prescribed this for me to try to help with sleep, particularly waking early in the morning with chest pain and anxiety. I was a bit reluctant to get stuck into it as I'm not keen on developing a benzo addiction but it does seem to be working pretty well. I'm on a pretty low dose - been able to get it down to 0.25mg/night. Combined with 3mg of Melatonin, it pretty much solves my sleep issues. Well, I don't feel that rested and I sometimes feel pretty groggy in the morning, but at least I'm getting 7-8 hours a night, which is a huge improvement over the 3-4 I was getting before. Has anyone had any long term experiences with this drug? I know Cheney has recommended it for long-term use in CFS and disputed that it is habituating (http://www.prohealth.com/library/showarticle.cfm?id=3154&t=CFIDS_FM). There are lots of horror stories about benzo addiction on the internet though too.
