I've never been prescribed anything I have been diagnosed with GAD, severe anxiety and I have PTSD from being mugged and beat up. I have frequent panic attacks and I finally am on something that feels good but it's like I am almost there... I tried 1mg and it felt great. I am diagnosed .5mg 3x a day. Should I call my doctor or wait until our 2 week follow up which is in about a week... I am just wondering why .5 wouldn't work for me initially.
I am a 1st time user of clonazapam. I think my Dose is too low. Should I call my Doctor about it?

Wait the 2 weeks, because the effect will build. Give it a chance and keep a diary of how you feel every day. Then tell your dr, show him the diary. Do not ask for an increase. Drs are too touchy about controlled meds to do that. Give him all the info and let him draw that conclusion.
Nightshade i agree 100$ WITH kass... Doctors get real touchy about the sch.drugs the doctors are very tight until you prove yourself but more so it would be better to go the full two weeks sometimes on many drugs you have to be on them to get the full results And do not increase by yourself you can really get yourself in a tough spot that way... Chuck Wise Sr. best of luck to you
