well hi everyone been a while since i posted here, but ive been on reading daily. well today i d k im just starting to feel anxious again. Ive took my medicine 1mg klonopin for teh day, and 100mg zoloft. But im still feeling anxious. If i cant sleep i night i would take a half of klonopin(.25) to try n help me sleep. I was wondering is it safe to take .25 right now, and nto later so the anxiety can subside some more. Ive took my last dose of klonopin approxiametly 3 hours ago(.5) but still feel very anxious as of right now. i seen my doctor last week. and she had told me if im tired in teh day to take .25 and .75 at night. But .5 seems to only be working not the .25 so i take .5 in morning and .5 at night with my zoloft. So newayz would it be safe to take .25 right now. thank u i would appreciate some help. especially those who have used it before. and is this a sign of addiction, or just need to up the dose.(I have not had my dose upped since i started taking it). i feel safe enough to take .25 right now.(ive been on benzos teh last year for panic attacks and it seems eventually i would need more to stop them. So plz help, Thank u

 If you really feel that bad you could call the hospital and ask them even though they will tell you to come in but just tell them you can't right now and u just need some info and maybe they will help u, I know it's way to late at night for a doctor call but just maybe the hospital doc at the ER will help u

If you dont want to do that I am sure since your doc said it was okay to take a bit more go ahead and do so so you can sleep .Niothing makes anxiety worse than no sleep this gives it more leverage to come at us
important to be health and have good sleeping habits IMO
You take care

Hi Levelle

I think if your doctor said you could take more klonopin, I sure would. You really do need your sleep and the klonopin will do just that. I take 100mg of Zoloft and Klonopin .5 3x, but if I can't sleep I take an extra .5 Klonopin. If your really worried about taking extra, it may be a good idea to reconfirm this with your doctor. Take care and feel better.
