You have prob. read some of my posts about this subject before. But I have social anxiety and panic disorder and was on xanax for years. Apparently i built up a tolerance and my pdoc switched me to klonopin. After a few days, I was feeling bad, depressed and just generally yucky. So, I called my pdoc and said it wasnt working with the klon. so she switched me to ativan. Tried that for a week, (did absolutely nothing for me) So, anyway, knowing my pdoc wasnt going to put me on xanax again. I decided to try the klonopin once again. This time it worked great. . I am more outgoing in social events and havent had a panic attack. So, at this point it works alot better for me than xanax did for SP. I think for me the reason I didnt like the klon. at first was because i was going thru withdrawl symptoms from the xanax.
You may want to give it another try. Give it a week or so and see what happens
Good luck,
