To be honest with u, I have tried everything before ever having 2 be put on a benzo which I wish I never had to be put on... with that being said..The first benzo was was valium... hated it so bad..don't like meds that make me just want to sleep sleep sleep/be lazy for I have ocd as one of my mh conditions and lazy doesn't full into that category... then went to ativan... did nothing at all for my severe panic/agoraphobia..then xanax..of yeah they kicked in great right away but wore off in 4 yrs and was stuck with rebound anxiety from the med..finally doc put me on a longer acting benzo... klonopin... it works about 8 hrs for me so I am prescribed 1 mg 3x daily... works like a charm... don't feel tired don't just lay in bed like a useless peace o s... t..I am content with klonopin..although it takes a little longer to kick in then xanax..it works for me 24/7... with xanax I can see someone abusing them for they wear off to quick and then u get hit with the rebound anxiety..and want to take more even if it is not your doseage x... look up xanax/rebound anxiety u will learn alot..don't just take my word research... google rebound anxiety from xanax... if you want 2 go with a benzo which u don't have to there r other none benzo meds out there like buspar..with that being said, if I were u I would go with the klonopin it works so much longer then the rest..you can take .25 3 x daily and if not enough doc can take u up slowly to the amount u need to be on... your like your choice..I am not a doc but have been there done that for 15 yrs experimenting..until I got the k that works great for me and it doesn't make me lazy, tired, etc... even when i first started it..so all I can say is good luck and it's your body n choice if u want to try whatever... best of luck 2 u..keep me updated... pm me if u would like i will add u as a friend if i didn't already...
