klonopin and xanax together?

If I take .25 klonopin  2x daily for maintenance of anxiety , can I take the occasional xanax  for breakthrough panic attacks?

Please understand that I'm not a pharmacist and you MUST discuss this with your doctor before taking any Xanax.
You CAN take an occasional "rescue" dose of alprazolam for breakthrough panic attacks, both are benzos, so in that respect, it is safe, it's just not a common practice. If you are having breakthrough attacks with the Klonopin, I would advise talking with your doctor about increasing the dosage rather than taking both medications.

Thank you, so much for your response..I think I am going to try to go back to xanax as needed rather than get farther down the road with a daily dependence situation...IF I can get my doc to prescribe the xanax...she is a naturopath and doesn't like dealing with these meds at all. I had been taking xanax , as needed  from an old script, and when it ran out, the new doc went with klonopin.  Lately, though, my anxiety has been running my life too much..taking away my very self, it seems, so maybe it will come down to a daily, after all.  Thank you, again...
