Jenni, I'm taking just half of one 5 mg clonazapam tablet. I take it in the morning if I'm encountering or anticipating an event to be stressful or my emotions are messed up. I only take it as needed because I know how highly addicting it is and how difficult it is to get off of it.
Sometimes I might take an extra half. But I try to have some days off when things are quiet in my life so I won't become dependent. It has a long half life and stays in your body a long time which is why I can take it in the morning and it helps take the edge off of anxiety throughout the day.
I'm not sure if you were given it for depression or for anxiety?
I've noticed even this low dose damps down my emotions--not sure if I'd call it depression.
I'm thinking a whole one before bed is too much. It would be for me.
