Hi,
I'm no longer 'allowed' ADs since they trigger manic episodes for me, but I have taken remeron in the past and found it fairly effective- it's just in a different class (TCA? vs SSRI)- but I don't see a potency issue. Some classes of ADs simply work better than others for different people. A question- is your depression secondary to your anxiety disorder?- if so then treating the anxiety with a benzo often gets rid of the depression. If it's primary depression then that simply doesn't work.
Honestly, mild depression (in my case) is a side effect of klonopin, but it works much better for me than xanax. You can certainly try xanax and see if it works as well as klonopin- perhaps the XR version would be a good replacement.
Depending on the severity of your anxiety disorder, 4mg of klonopin is not terribly high- I take 6mg (which is considered high).
take care, judy
