I'd go for Valium, personally. 30mgs I think is roughly equivalent to the 1.5mgs/Klonopin. If you have difficulty sleeping, the doctor could possibly add another 10mgs, for sedation.

Valium is fast acting and has a long half life. Its easier to taper than most other benzodiazepines. Diazepam is also available in a wide variety of generic pill sizes, and I think there's still a generic liquid, too.

-all- benzodiazepines can cause cognitive problems, depression, etc., but Valium isn't as bad at causing those problems as Klonopin.

I don't much care for Tranxene, although there was (maybe still is) a "T-tab" that gave all day coverage with one pill. That's convenient, which is always helpful.

Librium is somewhat similar to Valium, but less potent, so you'd need a good bit of Librium to cover your Klonopin dosage. It also functions as a muscle relaxer (more so than most other benzodiazepines), and higher doses tend to be sedating.

OK. Hope this helps.
