You should be fine: Make sure that you are also in psychotherapy, that you get plenty of exercise. Make sure that you keep a strong social support network. Never stop your medications without discussing your physician's plans for you and also make sure you understand that you need to come off of them that they are tapered extremely slowly. Both clonopin and Paxil (paroxetine) must be tapered very slowly.
