Rick, I tried taking the Klonopin in the mornings, but I usually exercise in the morning. I jog/run and when I take the Klonopin it sort of slows me down to where I don't want to exercise. The reason for running is to help with my anxiety disorder (plus the added health benefit). The running and jogging helps with the stress plus the repetion of the activity calms the mind and releases endorphines ( and gives me something to concentrate on). But when I can't exercise or I have to go some where, attend an event or function, or I know I will be doing something that is likely to cause me anxiety on a particular day I will definately take a morning dose.

Your question about Gabitril. It has been a while since I took it. But I think I was on it about two months. I took 4mg at bedtime and 2mg in the morning. I do remember that you have to eat something with each dose because it tends to make you sick on your stomach. To me I didn't suffer any more cognative defects as opposed to the benzos. Some very good research articles on Gabitril and its treatment in anxiety disorders is at http://www.personalconsult.com/gabitrileffectiveness.html There is also a better series of articles but I do not have the web address for those (sorry). My doctor was going to try to gradually make a switch from the Klonopin to the Gabitril (since Gabitril does not cause addiction). But at the time I was in my senior year in college and with the anxiety the Klonopin was the best med for me at the time (and still remains) . Hope this helps. Lots of luck BRC.
