If you take Klonopin (generic or brand) daily the sedative effect will wear off after maybe 2 months. But the anti-anxiety effect does not wear off.. This was my experience and I've read others with the same. I've taken Klonopin on and off since 1996. It no longer helps me sleep, but it's very helpful at eliminating anxiety.
If you are too sedated with your dosage you can lower it. I was initially RXed 1 mg at night and 0.5 mgs morning but I found the .5 to be too sedating so broke it in half. Now I usually take 0.5 mgs every morning.
> I was wondering if it will always knock me out about an hour after taking my dose, or will I get used to it.
