... helping for the first two months. But now I’ve had increased anxiety the last few weeks. How many of you had to up your dose to feel better? I’m wondering if I need to go higher than 30 mg a day? I’m also slowly tapering off of clonazepam which I’ve been taking 1 mg at bedtime for two months. I feel like it was making me a bit depressed. I felt the anxiety before the taper though. Any thoughts? Thank you!
Hi,Pic! I started at 10mg 2x daily and slowly increased my dose because the lower doses seemed to "wear off" after a while. My doctor now has me taking 30mg 2x and that's been effective for me for about a year now.
It would probably be a good idea to talk to your doctor about possibly raising your dosage.
Best regards and I hope you're feeling better soon.
P.S. Glad to hear you're getting off the clonazepam because the benzodiazepines are not really good to take long term.
