I am taking half of one 1mg an hour before bed time. Its been since March 27 and all it does it makes me drowsy at night sometimes I can't keep in balance when I'm walking it does help with my anxiety but sometimes I can still feel the symptoms of anxiety at night but then it goes away because its easier to control it. When I wake up during the day I still feel the same even before I took this medication, like if its not working through out the day? Should I take it in the mornings instead or should I take the whole 1 mg pill for it to function at night and during the day? I need opinions please..
Is Clonazepam working for me?

What dose of the clonazepam were you prescribed? If it was 1mg daily,then you could try a half in the morning and another half at night to see would that help keep your panic at bay. Also have you tried any other anti anxiety meds,benzo's like clonazepam are great for short term relief from anxiety,but maybe you could ask your doctor about trying a longterm one that works over time,they may take up to 4weeks before you feel any relief but may benefit you more in the long run.
Just a thought
Thank you very much for answering (:
The dose I was prescribed was 1mg I only take half of an hour before bed time. And no I'm only taking Clonazepam but I was also thinking the same thing you told me to switch to a different med that would take weeks but atleast last longer in my system but ill still think about it but thanks again (:
