OP, I just tried taking this myself, over the last several weeks. I tried 25mg (all at once) and it had no effect on me at all. I kept upping the dose until I was taking 125 mg, all at once. It had no effect on me, at all, except to make me a little dizzy and sleepy. My anxiety was still there though lol. I told my pdoc today and he tried giving me Gabapentin and changed my SSRI antidepressant to Zoloft, so hopefully that will work.
I'm usually hesitant to speak up to my doc (I hardly talk at all anyway, to anyone). But you should tell her you want to try the Klonopin, if that's what you really want. It's you that has to live with the med you're taking, not her, so don't be afraid to ask. Unless you think the Hydrox seems to do the trick for you.

Spend every moment like it's your last. Hug her, kiss her, hold her, like it's the last time that you ever will. Because it might be.
