According to the benzo equivalency charts, 10mgs of nitrazepam is equivalent to .5mgs clonazepam, but in my experience nitrazepam packs quite more of a punch than that. You should maybe know that at least in my experience (and as I gather from my general impression of reading and hearing people's experiences) nitrazepam is a lot more sedative than clonazepam. Clonazepam is one of my general go-to benzos for daytime anxiety, whereas nitrazepam is one of the heaviest hypnotics I've ever tried. I wouldn't take it during the day, but for sleep, it's been one the most effective drugs I've tried. Great for providing long and uninterrupted sleep, but it can make you quite groggy, but if clonazepam isn't helping and you're on a high dose then nitrazepam might be right for you
