Klonipin users-what dose was good for you for general social anxiety? I would like to eliminate my use of xanax.
Right now I'm taking 0.5 twice a day, but doesn't quite do the trick. (of Klonipin) What worked for you? Thank You!
I would always try to stay on the lower doses such as .5 twice a day. Klonopin like xanax is addictive. The benefit of klonopin is it is a longer acting benzo. But you really need to talk to your DR about this. I would really try to steer clear of benzos unless you really need them
Without knowing anything about your mental health difficulties, I can't advise you one way or the other.
As antidepressants don't work for me anymore. Anal cancer treatment damaged my colon and they all now cause immediate and non-stop diarrhea. For years I tried various antidepressants, sometimes alone. More often with an anti anxiety as anxiety was the core problem.
My psychiatrist and I know that clonazapam is addictive, but I'm 74 and out of options. I try not to worry about the addictive qualities, and focus on living the life I've been given.
What I take varies a bit. Total prescribed is 2mg: 1 AM, 1 PM. What I take is 1mg daily; some days less. I just don't mess about anymore thinking I am fine, can get through anything without help:).
Example: after my son's memorial, which I was arrogant enough to think I could handle with no clonazapam, I passed out completely, complete with bowel loss and vomiting...not the prettiest picture. After a couple of hours in ER, was told what I already knew. Nothing physically wrong. It was a massive panic attack. So, back to clonazapam. Wouldn't it have been nice if I'd taken my medicine and spared my family all the drama??? LOL
