Erik

I took Klonopin and now Ativan for social anxiety. It has helped in a slightly detached and apathetic, way but never got rid of my true anxiety.

Klonopin half-life is about 30 hours but peak plasma level hits in about 2 hours hours so I would recommend twice/3x a day (depending on how long you are awake during your day) It takes about 1 hour to kick in and is a temporary drug (not like AD which is probably why they prescribe it less).. so it will probably work better when you take it in the morning and afternoon. I took .5mg twice a day eventually down to taking as little as .25mg twice a day. It causes me some short term memory loss which I have heard some others relate to. If I took 2mg of Klonopin and then went to see a movie, I literally would not remember one line!

Here is the most possible information on the drug that could possibly fit onto a web page.

Take care,
