I have just switched from klonopin .5 mg taken 4 times a day, to xanax .5mg taken 4 times a day. I seem to be feeling a bit of withdrawal symptoms and want to know if these mg's match up or if there is a difference in the mg's of these meds. Please help
Just curious why you switched from Klonopin to xanax? Xanax seems to be a little stronger but wears off quicker and more abrubtly. Klonopin helps more with breakthrough anxiety in my opinion. A good friend of mine had to switch from Xanax to Klonopin because they were feelign withdrawals from xanax during the day...especially if they waited an extra hour or so to take their dose because they forgot.
Just from my own personal experience my doctor switched me from klonopin 1 at night before bedtime .5mg to xanax .5mg instead and it caused me to have a setback. I had been on the klonopin for 12 years and after being on xanax for 2 months I started having major anxiety attacks. I went to a psychiatrist and she told me the change in meds was one of the main reasons the anxiety started again plus my GP tried me on ambian for sleep and efflexor. I had been going thru a lot of stress too. I'm back on klonopin 1.5 mg now and better but the changes really messed me up. I still have some anxiety but it's getting better. If you were doing ok on the klonopin I wouldn't risk the change.
