> I have recently started klonopin, the directions as per label are to take them twice daily. Where as Xanax was prn (As needed) prior to the switch. The doc didn't give me any directions as to when to take it so I have been trialing taking it at different times. I have read that most of you hear are morning/bedtime dosing. I really can't tell if any timing is any better, today I took the first at about 8 AM and the second at noon. Hoping for recomendations, Thanks!

My new pdoc just gave me a prescription for .5mg 2x/day "as needed", 60 count for a month's supply. It's silly, but I understand his madness- it's to say he's exploring it for my worst anxiety (during class, when I needed to talk) and helps to convey the idea that he's really trying hard to maximize my Lexapro before he decides to give me Klonopin "full time."

Once I get acclimated to Klonopin again, I'll of course require 1mg 3x/day, and 3x/day is standard dosing that psychiatrists use given the nature of its effect in the bloodstream. That'll probably be what I'll be taking in a month from now, but for right now I need .5mg until my body adjusts to the somnolence-- that takes a week or so.

Then it's onto Klonopin Wafers. No more Purepac generic for me! =)
