Undead - I agree with everything that Elizabeth said. By crushing the tablets you are increasing the surface area, making the drug easier to absorb. You will notice a quicker effect by doing this, but the effect may not last as long. This may just be a matter of symantics though, since the half-life of Klonopin is fairly long anyway (18h to 80h, depending on how your body pharmacokinetically handles the drug - ie. rate of absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion).

I know of people who are taking a quarter of a 0.5mg tablet daily for anxiety related to bipolar disorder, and this is enough for them. Benzodiazepine doses are very individualized, so 0.5mg per day is enough for many people. You want the drug to ease the anxiety; this does not mean that you necessarily have to "feel it", as in giving you a buzz, or in any way altering your perception. Ideally, a benzo should take the edge off without having you feel otherwise different. - Cam
