> Here's a paper that helps establish both alprazolam (Xanax) and clonazepam (Klonopin) as being effective for panic disorder. It recommends clonazepam for its longer half-life. If your doctor is curious about this, he can read the full article and contact the authors. This paper was submitted by the group at Harvard Medical School that works out of Mass. General. I'm sure the article provides reviews of previous work done by others in the field.

Scott, if you find something regarding Xanax PRN i'd love to know about it. That's what I'm doing now- klonopin with xanax as needed. I'm lucky that i don't have a pdoc who's afraid of benzos and trusts me. but it really does work. it'd be great to be able to back it up with some literature.
