.5 mg is perfect. Try to stay in that range, more is not always better. Always best to get over your "issues" without medication, but, sometimes it is very necessary for us to use it, and not worry about it playing a role in hindering your recovery. I have been on Klonopin .5 mg as needed for over 8 years now, and have not experienced any ill fainted side effects a lot of people speak of or any sort of dependency. Do I feel my best on it? Yes. Do I feel the need to take it everyday? Not at all. Take it responsibly, and don't get anxious taking medication that will help your anxiety.
Best of luck friend.
