Ask the doctor to ditch the Paxil and prescribe the Klonopin as it is intended to be prescribed: .5 mg, two times every day. Your doctor is probably trying to avoid dependence by dosing it as-needed, but what's the point if you're miserable? Just ask him to let you give it a shot for a couple weeks and see what happens.
i have been taking the klonpin sometimes 3 times a day i wont take paxil anymore inotice it does help when i take it the does is low so is there a chance of me being addicted to it?? im scared of that happening..
