If you take Klonopin, how much do you take per day?

My doctor just upped me to 1.75 mg per day from .75 mg per day. She said most likely we will be at 2 mg per day. I'm just curious what everyone else takes if you take Klonopin on a regular basis.

Currently taking
  • 2 mg Klonopin per day

most likely is because most people's GP's are the same sex as their patients.

Yeah, she's a psychiatrist with 45 years experience with a specialization in anxiety.

I will say one thing, I have been like drowsy all day ever since I upped my dosage. Will this go away in a couple weeks?

Currently taking
  • 2 mg Klonopin per day

0-2mg is my dose. I've taken more than that a few times, but only for certain situations.

Re: If you take Klonopin, how much do you take per day?

The first time I ever took a benzo that was prescribed to me it was Klonopin at 2 mg per day. (I had tried both Ativan & Valium before that -- let's say they magically fell out of the sky.)

The largest Klonopin script I ever had was for 4 mg a day. 6 mg of Klonopin is the most I ever tried taking in a day. As I've said in other threads, I don't think Klonopin is as potent as generally claimed. I don't believe that 6 mg = 12 mg of Xanax or 120 mg of Valium. Half that sounds more accurate to me.

DEA agents, being on par with Nazi war criminals, should be executed for crimes against humanity. They are guilty of inflicting mass suffering upon legitimate patients.

Re: If you take Klonopin, how much do you take per day?

I'm prescribed .5mg twice a day but I'm so afraid of being tolerant or addicted to it that I hardly ever take it. Unfortunately it's probably the one and only med with even a slight chance of helping my SA.

Question How much do you take? HELP!

I am new to this site, so hello to all. I have a question--I have been taking Clonopin for over 15 years and I am taking 8mgs per day (top dose according to my doc), however, it is just not working for me anymore. What should I try now? I am at a total loss and any suggestions will be highly appreciated and valued. Thanks to all who reply!

I was prescribed a low dose (0.5mg), but I almost never take it because I have no energy at all on it. The first time I tried it I actually sat watching my dinner burn and it took me 5 minutes to finally get up to turn the heat off.
