Klonopin (clonazepam) is in a class of drugs called benzodiazepines. Klonopin affects chemicals in your brain that may become unbalanced and cause seizures or symptoms of panic disorder.  Klonopin is used to treat seizures and panic disorder.

Hi Ryan;

   Do you then feel Klonopin is less useful for GAD than, say, Valium?
   I have GAD and have been taking Valium 10 mg. tid for 15 years. A month ago Dr. switched me to Klonopin .5 mg. tid. It's been a hard month with the loss of Valium's active metabolites which Dr. thought were building up in my system.
   I hope your day is pretty good.
