Klonnepin-taking once or twice a day

Am I going to get less of a effect of taking Klonnepin .10 in the morning versus 2. .05 per day?   I am taking Lexapro and Wellbutrin.  I have been on Wellbutrin for years and Klonnepin in winter. only.  Lexapro is less than a year.

I get nervous in job primarily in the winter.

Klonopin works well for the first 8 or so hours after you take it.  So if you take it twice a day, you are getting the benefit for 16 hours or so.  If you take one .10 in the morning, you will get that benefit for roughly 8 hours only.  Klonopin does build up in your system when taken regularly over time.  You should take it as your doctor prescribed it to you which I'm assuming is twice a day.
