Did you try this on your own or did you check in with your doctor first? if you did it on your own, I's suggest going back to the 30 mg and see if the restful sleep returns. If it does and you you just can't kick the appetite thing any other way, you might have to talk with your doc about adding another antidepressant during the day. I'd be a little curious about maybe a tiny dose of Cylert or even a small dose of an appetite suppressant to get over the hurdle of depression, help the appetite, but not so much as to give you the jitters. Cylert gives almost nobody the jitters and an appetite suppressant can be much milder than a true stimulant. If you did talk with your doctor first and told him of your experiment and he's OK with you trying a bit of Klonopin for a day or two to see if the sleep/jitters will even out like they did before, then by all means try it. A few days will not make your body dependent on Klonopin, nor should a few days on the higher dose make you nonresponsive to 30 mg if you end up needing to return to it after all.
