Default Klonopin - how often to take?

Ok, so I know I'm supposed to take it twice a day, but does it mean a tab every 12 hours? Switching from Xanax, I feel like I'm waiting forever for the next dose. I start getting nervous and twitchy after 8 hours or so. Can I take it a little sooner as long as I keep it at bid? If so, how sooner?

I went from Xanax 2mg tid to Klonopin 1mg bid in 2 weeks. That's a huge milestone. I won't decrease dosage further anytime soon, if ever.

I'm sorry to double post, but I need to know. Can this be taken at, say, 8-hour intervals, as long as it's kept at 2 doses per day?

Yes, it can be taken that way. It's best to take it on an as needed basis. For klonopin, taking it an hour before a party, speech or other anxiety inducing situation etc. should work nicely. You don't have to take it 2 times every day.
