i read there are klonopin wafers that you take when having a panic attack. if this is true can i ask my doc to continue with the pills, but also prescribe the wafers for my panic attacks. this sounds so hopeful, maybe i will have less agoraphobia. i rarely leave the house. logically, it seems that maybe i could go somewhere if i had my wafers with me. i am crying right now that this might work for me and change my life. please, if anyone knows about this please respond. i don't see the doc for 2 months and it takes an act of congress to get him to return a phone call. do you think he would prescribe the wafers as well as the pills? do the wafers really stop a full blown panic attack? i am so excited right now, please someone tell me something. thank you so much.
HI i have read some mixed reviews. Some people LOVE them, while some people don't think they are much better than ordinary Klonapin. I don't see why your doctor wouldn't prescribe them for you to try. Only thing is i've read that they are very expensive because there is no generic version. I have provided the link below for basic information about them but reading reviews is more helpful. I hope you can get to try them out and that they are successful for you : ) https://www.drugs.com/mtm/klonopin-wafer.html
yes they do prescribe wafers, can't answer as to the fact of if your doctor would do it or not, but as insurance wise goes u may have an issue, they might say ether one or the other being it the same drug and all, meaning they may tell doctor that is has to be either the pill or the wafer, not 100% sure, but u no how ins. companies work, i don't no what u have, but there funny that way!!
I wish I could have responded to "briards" months ago when the question was posted. I did not know that they had wafers until today when I was looking into questions about Klonopin (which I have been on over 5 years).
Prior to that I used Xanax but I needed something that lasted longer. I just wish Klonopin kicked in as fast as Xanax for when you need something NOW. I am lucky (I think) that my practioner has agreed to let me have Xanax too but only to use in those NOW times and not within two hours of taking Klonopin. I use the smallest dose of both and do see that Klonopin is a better drug for my anxiety problems. With just Xanax I would be going up and down like a roller coaster. If I had to pick only one it would be Klonopin.
