Which one do you guys prefer? What's the main difference you feel? I'm taking Xanax for anxiety daily, and I will switch to Klonopin tomorrow because of the longer half-life, however I remember Klonopin to be much, much more powerful, at least when getting high on benzos. Don't know much about daily use.

Recreationally, which one do you prefer?

No benzo should really be used for daily anxiety for what is considered "long-term" by the medical community. If we're strictly talking about social anxiety, generalized anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and similar anxiety types --- then yeah, go for clonazepam.
For strictly panic? Go for alprazolam.

Do not, for the love of all that is decent and living, do not get into daily usage. Tolerance rises, addiction potential is extremely high, withdrawals carry the risk of: rebound anxiety, physical symptoms returning (sweating, heart racing, etc.), insomnia, seizures, hallucinations, depersonalization, and even death...
From my experience with being on clonazepam (not daily) for 4 years with my RX ranging from 0.5mg 2x/day to 1mg 3x/day and my alprazoalm ranging from 0.25mg 3x/day to 0.5mg 3x/day (I was on both at the same time), I've gotta say, go with clonazepam for long-lasting relief from anxiety.
Take note of this.
>Benzos are not a cure for anxiety. These pills are merely a band-aid and should not be taken lightly or frequently. Keep dosages low, use infrequently, do not mix with other drugs or alcohol if you can help it, and don't drive when you're benz'd for the sake and safety of others.

I don't use benzos recreationally, but hypothetically if I was offered to trade my 4mg clonazepam rx for alprazolam I'd say no. I

I've used benzos daily. They work fine. All of the hysteria over benzo withdrawals and addiction is because people are too dumb to taper properly.

I don't think it's a matter of intelligence matters as it is misinformation and ignorance.
Of course, a proper taper can greatly minimize w/d side-effects. A proper taper isn't always what an individual's doctor recommends though, and that's a major problem. Even doctors aren't well versed in tapering schedules let alone knowing what the Ashton Manual is.

have fun quiting benzos after several years of daily use

I used to take Xanax but I eventually found it to be too "dopey", my tolerance got really high very quickly, and it made it hard for me to function (it was far easier for me to black out on it). I eventually asked my doctor for a new benzo and he prescribed me Klonopin.

Klonopin is great, it lasts longer across the day and I feel like I can handle myself better on it even though it kinda gets me higher. It's more of a "comfy" feeling than Xanax. I sleep great on it, and have been using it daily for 3.5 years now.

I'm a strange case in that benzos don't seem to cause me withdrawals. I can binge for 2 weeks straight, and then have to wait 2 more weeks for my refill, and while I'll feel a bit bummed and my insomnia returns, I've never had a seizure, or hallucinations, or disassociation from stopping my medication. My other benzo-prescribed/addicted friends think I'm some kinda freak.

Yes, where IS Mr. Shoe?
Dr. Katz - Tue, 17 Jan 2017 11:42:10 EST ID:fZhk9jGw No.133407 Ignore Report Quick Reply
He tapered off of diazepam completely. Shoe came back to /benz/ a couple times post-taper to discuss potentially using benzos recreationally and infrequently. I can't recall a single poster telling him it was a good idea.
Shoe relapsed twice (as per his posts) on alprazolam/diazepam + alcohol and/or tramadol.

The last I heard was that Thailand was becoming less lax on OTC benzos in Mr. Show's area. He may have already gone back to the U.K. Not too sure on that one. He hasn't posted in a year or so.
