klonopin
« on: May 23, 2014, 07:54:53 AM »
my pdr gave me .5 klonopin was wondering how strong that is. I have taken .5 of zanax is that about the same. I am to take as needed but I don't want to take very much. I would rather be on a anti depressant that worked well. what dose does most people take?

Yes, 0.5mg Klonopin equals about 0.5mg Xanax.

For anxiety, typically 0.5-3mg/day; for epilepsy, 10-20mg/day (20mg is the recommended maximum).

I take anywhere from .5mg to 1.5mg of Klonopin a day. I am a 140lb 42 year old woman. I like Klonopin better than Xanax because it makes me feel "normal" versus a little "loopy" and it doesn't wear off as fast due to its long half life.

I am on Lexapro/Klonopin combo and just moved up to 15mg Lexapro. So far so good!

.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.

thanks for the replies. I have phobias I need to work on so would this help me with the extra anxiety and maybe working myself into a panic attack? I still haven't taken it I have been very anxious a few times but just pushed through. jk how often do you take it?

@forever young, I take it truly as needed. Sometimes I will go a month to months without it, sometimes I will need it .5 mg every day for a week straight, and sometimes just once a week. Klonopin would definitely help with any phobia and the extra anxiety. You will feel like you when you take it.
