In my experience, it would just make me drowsy. 2mg, VERY drowsy lol

Just be careful surf. I was recently hospitalized from benzos (anti-anxieties), and apparently an overdose of them are more fatal than say, heroin. It's so easy to overdose, I did it by accident. Too much of your klonopin can not only make you drowsy but also impair your judgement and memory, thus taking more thinking you didn't take them yet.

Don't mean to scare you surf lol

I hope they help you, I know how bad anxiety can get.

Yeah, maybe 1mg twice a day would be better. Just don't change anything without asking your doc.

I'm glad the panic attacks have gone away and palpitations also. I was on that for a year myself until it just stopped working for me. It did cause drowsiness in me also so I took mostly at night time. 2mg that is.

I wonder why makes doctors chose klonopin these days.

Best of luck
