I recently posted another similar question but didn't include all the details and was no longer getting replies.

Does anyone take klonopin "as needed"? Some doctors prescribe it to be taken bid or tid... but mine is "bid prn" so it says "take one twice a day as needed" What does that even mean?? I'm curious how to know when is the correct time to take one. When is it ever really "needed"? It seems like with my anxiety/panic issues, I can literally always consider it "needed" under current circumstances so I just don't know what to do. I feel like the "as needed" implies my doc doesn't want me taking it regardless, yet I'm given enough. Another issue is my mother making me feel guilty for taking to it, which only adds to my stress. Thanks in advance for your replies :)
