> Hi - I am a long-time MAOI user who was recently prescribed a starting dose of 1 mg/day of Klonopin along with the Parnate. I am concerned about fatique/sleepiness particularly as I am teaching. Has anyone had experience with (a) these two meds combined - successful for social anxiety/OCD? b) starting Klonopin dose in general re fatigue? A doctor/friend of mine said that .5 mg (half of the 1 mg) would be a begin starting dose.

I took Klonopin for a while with Parnate. I started at .5mg as well. I found it to be a fairly strong sleepy drug. I actually switched back to Trazodone because I prefer the results. But I know some people don't like Trazodone.

If you're concerned with being too tired, I would definitely start with the lower dose and bump it up if necessary.
