Why domany doctors frown upon the fact klonopin (clonazepam) 3mg is working so great for my GAD for the past 3 years instead of trying different antidepressants??

In brief: Sedation vs life

Because this dangerously high dosed sedative is not curing you.
It is not treating your anxiety. It is numbing you. Sedating you. Postponing healing and health. Anxiety cannot be cured with this approach. You are missing out on living. You are not learning any tools on living with your feelings and emotions. We used to call this "mommy' little helper". Numbed up is no way to live.
