doctor as only given me o.5mg of clonazepam 3 times daily
Klonopin is a great medication! I started out at 0.5mg daily, and was raised up to 1mg per day, .5 in the morning, and .5 in the evening. Things happened, and was raised all the way up to 4mg, then shortly after down to 3mg. I now have been going to therapy for a while, and feel that 3mg is a bit much, so I've tapered back so far down to 2.5, and hope to get it down to 1 or 2mg per day. Basically, the increments often are done in 1mg, but totally depends on the situation. As was mentioned, I do hope that your taking an SSRI / SNRI as an augmenting drug - they really do help!
This is just my experiences, and hope that it is of some help to you!
Hi I was on klonopin .5 3mg 3 x daily for years. Worked great but eventually got used to it. Instead of upping my dose we switched but I think (I'm no doctor) you're on an appropriate dose. I have lots of anxiety too if you want another friend to chat with I'm here :) Cathleen
