I have severe anxiety and panic attacks. I feel like I'm going to freak out. My skin is crawling and my chest is tight. I have no patience and am in desperate need of something to calm me down. I have general anxiety, but this is different. I can't function when I have one of these attacks. It is completely disabling. I can't get in to see my pysc doc for awhile so I went in to see my primary doc today and he prescribed Klonopin .5 mg twice a day. I took the first dose at 4pm with no results, and so I took another at 6 or so, still I don't feel a bit calm. I would like to know how well this med works for others, how long it takes to work, what dose you're on, etc... Thanks!
