Klonopin for Panic?

Klonopin seems to help relax me but I hear that it is fiercely addictive and the withdrawals are severe. Anyone have experience with Klonopin?

Also, is Paxil considered less anxiety producing than Prozac?

I'm trying to find the right balance ...

Re: Klonopin for Panic?

I take Klonopin, and I don't think I am addicted to it. From my understanding, it is the least addictive of the anti-anxiety drugs. My psychiatrist sees me every month and monitors my meds. All of this helps me I think to stay safe.
You can become addicted to anything, but I feel pretty safe about the Klonopin. I have not had to have it increased or anything like that that would be a warning sign to me.
