Well, 2mg/day klonopin is not tons considering what some epileptics seem to be taking, but it's certainly enough to make someone very lethargic! (I fall asleep within minutes of taking half of a 0.5mg tablet...) As you probably know, klonopin has a very long duration of action in the body, so whatever you take in the morning ends up sitting "on top" of the previous evening's dose...great for anxiety, but not great for your sense of get-up-and-go.

Xanax is a less sedating benzodiazepine but would probably pose several drawbacks: it's far more addictive than klonopin and I think has proved risky combined with clomipramine in certain people (serotonin syndrome, etc.). Have you ever tried Buspar? (Though again probably not a clomipramine...) There are other longer shots perhaps worth considering too: gabapentin and valproate come to mind, and heck, there are always MAO-inhibitors, those these are definitely a no-no with Anafranil !
