hi, i understand your concern about remaining on remeron. klonopin is a benzo that's been used for both anxiety and depression. klonopin is relatively long-acting, so it's benefit for people with anxiety disorder is maitaining relatively constant peak plasma levels. for your sleep needs, however, a shorter-acting benzo, such as xanax might be beneficial. there are some drawbacks to the benzo's which you might want to keep in mind, such as dependence and the cognitive effects associated with any central nervous system depressant - including impairment of short-term memory, etc. also, you'd want to be careful not to mix alcohol with xanax. i understand there are some herbal remedies which help with insomnia, such as valerian root.

good luck. mb
