I'm 3 years off clonazepam and now suffer from severe anxiety and depression. It's triggered by life stressors. I don't deal with stress that well anymore, actually i'm now almost completely inept to deal with stress ever since i stopped using clonazepam. That stuff changed me. Before benzo's i had anxiety yes, but i could deal with it.

What helped/helps me is the following.
Low dose baclofen 5~10 mg for sleep. I sleep much better on it and it helps to relax my tense muscles.
Propranolol 5~10 mg whenever i feel like i'm high on adrenalin or when a panic attack is coming up.
Chamomile and lemonbalm tea for sleep or as anxiolytic during the day, strong brews.

Life stressors are a big culprit and you have little control over them. It is too bad those of us with anxiety disorders suffer with these overly sensitive CNS's. I try to eat as healthy as I can, meditate, and gentle exercise on a stationary bike 20 mins each day but sometimes, that does not seem like enough. This is also my biggest fear if I can ever get off the benzos.....that being chronic anxiety will still haunt me the remainder of my life.
