Klonopin (clonazepam) and Ativan are both Benzodiazepines. We now know that using benzodiazepines for other than very short term treatment, ( 30 days) can cause the development of more benzo receptors in the locus coeruleus causing more anxiety. Best to not use these for long term treatment. Older Docs did not know this; Benzo's used to be prescribed forever for everything. Now this is malpractice.
