Hi Damian,

The info I have is 10mg of Clobazam = 0.25mg of Clonazepam or 5mg of Diazapam. It's an unusually one for Australia, it isn't in the PBS. I doubt you will get Clonazepam as it is indicated for epileptics only. PBS choices are Alprazolam, Oxazepam or Diazepam.

Which TCA are you taking & what don't you like about it?

Cheers,
Panda.
