What to suggest? My Dr. Switched me on to Klonopin (clonazepam) from alprazolam which I took .5 mg for 7 yrs 2x a day, most recently 3x day.Today was my first go with the clonazepam .5 mg 2x a day. I was very nervous and apprehensive as you could imagine switching medicines after being on one so long. After the first dose, the hardest part for me was thinking about the side effects and of course taking only 2 pills instead of 3 with the Xanax. Had nausea off and on as well as the dizziness, dry mouth, blurry vision. I couldn't make it to 12 hrs before taking the other .5 mg as my body was feeling very uncomfortable probably due to being used to taking the Xanax by then. Is it OK to take it sooner? I took the other dose at 10 hrs. I was really scared how I felt and thought Id pass out. I have been doing much better since this 2nd dosage and only hope the progress continues. Anyone have success and encouragement? Thanks!
