“I am using Klonopin to taper off Lorazepam which is also a Benzo, they both have a BLACK BOX WARNING LABEL. My opinion, they should take them off the market .”
These may be the wrong medications for you to take but that doesn’t make them poison nor mean they should they be taken off the market. For some people with particular types of seizures these medications can be very beneficial, surely you don’t want to deprive those who are helped by these drugs.

I wasn't implying about taking Benzo's off the market. They are helpful for people who have Epilepsy. I was tested for Epilepsy but do not have it. I just began a very slow taper today (Valentines Day) and I am hoping that within the next 6 months I can be off this med completely. Even so, if it takes me a year I am breaking up with Klonopin. It treats me like a "Benedict Arnold". Leah09
