Default Klonopin Feels like it's Making me Dumber

I read that this is common with benzos over a long time.
that's great, Now I probably have a form of brain damage.

Slowly wean yourself off of the benzo if you think it will make you feel better. Just tell your doctor that you want to SLOWLY wean off.

try asking about a switch to valium and a -slow- -slow- slooooow taper off the valium.

some supplements...high dose B3 (id recommend niacinamide, personally), taurine, magnesium, antioxidants...

seem to help.

why niacin, and B3??
problem is I need an anxiety med right now, I dunno if valium is similar to klonopin? I don't want sedation either from it.
i read all benzos work on same chemical in the brain.
