i never gained any weight from klonopin but why you on both they same pill benz, should not be on both are you coming off xanax all together, klonopin is a much better med and long term us .

Can we ask the dosage times? When he suggests you take the medication? Just odd to see someone on both as was mentioned above.

Are you going to take them both? Or am I mis-understanding.
