I am taking pristiq daily and still feel anxious. I have trouble relaxing enough to fall asleep and wonder if I should take clonazepam at bedtime. It has been prescribed by one doctor for anxiety and another for restless leg syndrome.

If the clonazepam is prescribed just once a day and your restless leg keeps you awake along with the insomnia, I would take it in the evening before bed. That being said, what were the doctor's directions? You need to take as prescribed. If you have concerns about that, give the doctor a call. Did the two doctors give you the same directions? Do they know they both prescribed it?
How long have you been on the Pristiq? Hopefully the anxiety will get better the longer you are on this medication. If not, then this will need to be addressed at your next doctor's visit.
