I've taken Klonopin since Aug/03 and gained no weight at all. I guess weight gain may be dose related. I started on 1mg per day + .25mg as needed. Now I'm only on .5mg per day.
The other thing to consider is that continual anxiety/stress tends to suppress appetite and burn off calories because of the speeded up metabolism. So any weight gain may be more a result of lack of anxiety, than the medication itself.
As to time of day. I used to take .5mg am and .5mg pm. Now I take .5mg at bedtime. Some people like to take it around 1pm each day. I haven't really found any difference. Except when I was taking the extra .25mg PRN. That extra "support" dose, kicked in around 30-40 minutes later, and I could really feel a boost, during the time of extra stress I was taking it for.
Good luck!
