Ryan - question about meds.

Ryan,

I wanted to know your opinion on this:

Scenario:  someone has been taking Xanax for x amount of time and has developed a physical dependence on it.  They are told to stop taking the Xanax and substitute w/ Klonopin which takes several weeks to reach steady-state.  Is this, in your opinion, dangerous?  My assumption is this has the same effect as just stopping the Xanax cold-turkey which can lead to serious complications.

Thanks for answering.

I am suprised at the number of people who have posted here, over the last few months, that have found themselves in this situation (or something very similar) because their doctor is grossly misinformed.
