I was previously taking 10mg of valium but the psych that prescribed the valium retired so I was referred to this new dr. Do I have to take the .5mg of clonazepam every day so it builds up in my system b/c I am not feeling anything from .5 mg. I also take 100 mg of Zoloft. Is .5 mg of clonazepam equivalent to 10 mg of valium? Thank you for any help you can offer.
The clonazepam will take time to build in your system. The doctor started you out on a low dose. You may find that you'll need to take twice a day, but not without the doctor prescribing as such. I take clonazepam 0.5mgs three times a day and it helps, but we are all different. Just be honest with the doctor and you'll get it worked out.
its been my experience w/ doctors prescribing narcotics they tread so lightly because of the effects it can have on certain individuals. .05 of klonopin in my opinion is almost comical. i also take 100mg of zoloft 2x a day and that seems to work for me as well, hope this helps!!
