Hello.

One mg of Klonopin in a day should have been sufficient for a good sleep. But it seems your body does not respond to Klonopin as far as the sleep is concerned. I would suggest you try the sleep hygiene first.

You should have a quiet and dark room. There should be no distractions. Use your bed only for the purpose of sleep (and ***, of course), but strictly no reading books, watching TV or surfing the net while you are on your bed. Drink enough water through out the day. Do a little bit of exercise each day.

If all these fail (after a fair trial), I suggest you try Ambien CR. It has been proven to give 7 hours of sleep.

You also need to consult you physician for the sleep problem.

Regards
