Klonopin, half hour before bed to help me sleep. Very rarely do I take it during the day, if I do I take half a pill because I don't want to feel drowsy. My doctor prescribed 3 a day but no way...I'd be a walking zombie.

I take a small dose of xanax, but only when I really need it like plane flights, dental appointments, or sudden unexplained panic attacks. Sometimes I take a small daily dose for several weeks when I've been getting a lot of panic attacks in a row, but I hate to do that, and get off it as soon as I can. A daily dose seems to slow me down, and can make me feel depressed.
the geodon helps slow the brain down which reduces the anxiety and reduces depression from being bipolar. Or so I was told by psych md. The Klonopin is taken twice daily for ongoing anxiety. I have been on it for 3 yearss and it is not as effective as say, ativan or other med because I 've become used to taking the klonopin so it doesn't work as well. I just started taking ambien ten mgs for sleep at night and has been one of the best meds for me. I get my sleep and bedtime anxiety is gone just before I fall asleep. Mixed blessings. But at least I sleep. Before I didn't .
