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.
