I agree with Insights, you need to stay away from the websites that talk about how terrible benzodiazepines are. They won't help with your taper, and they will only increase your anxiety. Speaking from my own experience, I let those sites scare the devil out of me for no good reason.
I have gone up and down on my dose of clonazepam over the past 2 years, from 3 mg (when my panic and anxiety were completely uncontrolled) and tapered down to zero in a year... the only thing that happened was a lot of my original anxiety symptoms re-appeared. Now I take anywhere from .5mg-1.5mg per day while my pdoc and I try to find a different daily medication. My doctor has no problems prescribing me klonipin with re-fills, he knows I don't abuse them and I don't change my dose without consulting him first. He also thinks that, as a class of medication, they are safe and important part of anxiety treatment because the effects are so reliable for most patients.
