Probably not, but it might be worth a call to your pharmacy.

You might ask your doc about adding a low-dose of a sedative TCA at bedtime (10mg amitripytline, doxepin) or try a little Remeron (3-4mg). Of course, the usually inevitable hang-over problems will probably happen and you might not like that. I know what you mean about the tolerance issue with benzos. The Klonopin I take at bedtime helps, but I just don't get as drowsy as I used to, though it keeps panic at bay just as effectively.
