hi kaazoom, have u tried other meds with possible similar effects like lyrica, neurontin and or baclofen, they can help with muscle twitches etc and have a calming effect on the cns as well. The effect u get from klonopin seems similar to what i have got from those drugs just mentioned, plus they helped improve sleep. Like u said the effects dont last forever but maybe rotating between a few meds with similar action can help reduce tolerance so they remain effective. The drugs mentioned are probably alot easier for docs to prescribe on a regular long term plan, maybe use the benzo's on days when something important or big is on. cheers!!!
