Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello from JustAnswer.
It i the current recommendation that the duration of treatment with Klonopin and similar medicines be limited, as these medicines have a number of problems with long term use. There are some people in whom a doctor may choose to use Klonopin long term, but it is usually after other options have been tried and were not successful.
So, the usual approach would be to work with a single Psychiatrist to try various medicines and combinations of medicines to find the regimen that works well for you. And if there is no option that works well for you, then this Psychiatrist may be more willing to consider the use of Klonopin.
If I can provide any clarification, please let me know.
