I am down to my last pill of klonopin. I have been on Klonopin for about two months, but I have xanax as a back up. I couldn't get the doc today since today is the holy day in Islam. Will I be ok taking xanax until I get to the doc on Monday?? Also, I have been noticing lately that my anxiety increases later in the day. I take .5 mg of Klonopin in the morning and that is it. I am wondering if I am building a tolerance to my meds. I don't want to increase, since I plan to come off after the birth of my son in about 3 weeks. Would this explain the increase in anxiety later in the day?

Your doctor has no problem with you taken Klodopin while you are Pregnant. I was just reading the problems with this drug and the Unborn child. You may want to check out this site. Hope everything comes out OK. Congradulations on the new son.

xanax is OK but a dose only lasts about half as long
I didnt look at the other site mentioned but theres a lot of absolute nonsense around about these benzo meds that have been safely taken by pregnant women for over 40 years now
