I take kilonopin for anxiety and just read a study the mentioned it has an effect on igf-1 secretion. And since I'm taking igf-1, this wouldn't be good.... Any insight appreciated.
IDK?.I hope not,i take an occassional benzo 4 sleep and haven't noticed any negative effects or lack there of,but i don't take regularly/daily,so maybe it possibly could??..I need more info on this!!
There are no known contraindications regarding Benzo's taken concurrently with IGF-1.
Benzo's don't block Igf-1 nor the other way around. BTW, Klonopin isn't classified as a benzo, although it certainly fits the bill structurally and is often prescribed for the same symptoms as Xanax, Ativan, Valium etc. This has led many to believe it is not addictive in the same way as the above mentioned, but that is pure fallacy. The rehabs across America are filled with people who need long term care to D/C Klonopin. It still won't affect your exo or endo IGF.
Klonopin has the largest half-life out of the big range of benzos, which does make it useful to wean people of shorter acting medicines like valium or xanax
This is interesting, I have to look into this. Good post bro.

I am curious about the first comment:
"kilonopin for anxiety and just read a study the mentioned it has an effect on igf-1 secretion"
Where did you read this?
Btw: Valium and its metabolites have a long half life.
Valium may have a long half-life but its acute half-life, or the length of time where its effects can really be felt is only about 6-8 hours. Klonopin is more in the 12-14 range.
