Just got put on 1 mg of klonopin 2 x daily. (clonazepam) yesterday. Noticed a little calming at 1/2 tablet, but took the prescribed 1 mg this morning ,and doesn't seem to be helping..anxiety is just as bad. Anyone have any experience with this med? Tks..

Give it a while to get into your system. It is not an instant worker. Needs a bit of time to build up in the system. Then you should feel the full effects of it. I love the medication. It works great for me. Covers the full day. Medication works for some and doesn't for others. We all differ. Just give it a few weeks. I doubt you would notice any difference after one day. It is different from the other benzos. No instant kick in effects at all. A slow worker. More steady form of medication. Much better for people in my own opinion.

Do you know if it's ok to take clonazapam if you are also taking an anti-arrythmic for occasional a-fib to help you relax?

That question would be best put to a doctor. Which I am not. As both as to relax you I would strongly suggest you ask your doctor or even the local chemist. There may be ways of taken them together. Once it is not all in one go. Or on the otherhand they may conflict with each other. Can happen at times. One making the other stronger. Can't say I had ever heard of an anti-arrythmic until tonight. I am just googling it.
