Glad to hear the Klonopin is working out well for you. I too am on 1 mg of it daily, and have felt that it acts almost as a shield against panic. It's a safe medication, and one that you won't be likely to forget to take, because you realize how effective it is at suppressing high anxiety. It's no magic bullet, but it's a great med. It's also typically a lot more effective than gabapentin at treating anxiety.
It's advisable for many people who are on benzo's to pair up the medication with an antidepressant. That helps for when it comes time to eventually wean off of the benzo (if you choose to do so). Being entirely med-free isn't a realistic option for most of us GAD sufferers, so having a strong AD in the background is a sound strategy. Opinions vary on this, but it's something to consider.
