What is the average dosage of Klonopin?
3 times a day, wouldn't that accumulate in the liver due to it's long half life? I think twice a day dosing is sposed to be the max.My pdoc finds most patients respond well to 1mg three times daily, although that seems like a little much to me. 1-2mg in the morning is enough to take away any physical anxiety I may have for the entire day.
Would it even matter if it did?3 times a day, wouldn't that accumulate in the liver due to it's long half life? I think twice a day dosing is sposed to be the max.
Well I would assume that it would build up in the system more if you took it every say 8 hours, rather than twice a day, but that said, I agree with you, it's fairly safe drug, even if it did build up in the system a bit.Would it even matter if it did?
The kind of doses used for anxiety are dinky compared to the up to 20 mg a day that was used for epilepsy before it was replaced by newer anticonvulsants.
And wouldn't it be total dose that matters, rather than if it was taken every 8 or 12 hours?:stu
wow, so klonopin is the milder agent in the combo for your anxeity, can I ask, what are the stronger things?I'm prescribed 1mg twice a day PRN. I usually don't use it too much but when I do, I'll take 1 mg followed by another 1mg if I really think I need it. Usually 2mg causes too much amnesia and sleepiness though so I find 1mg is pretty decent for mild anxiety. For more severe anxiety, I am on other things.
I went to my Doc today and she knows I have been prescibed Ritalin. She is putting me on Klonopin 1mg a day. My Doc was wondering if it would not be good to be on both. One downer and one upper? What do you guys think.Klonopin works great for anxiety, but it has its obvious side effects which can become too overwelming once the doses start to get real high. I have formed a belief behind what is the root cause of SA and I don't believe benzos treat the root cause only the symptoms.
So in answer to your question, amphetamine is the "stronger thing" I was referring to. You see benzos do get rid of the fear but don't necessarily make me feel any more talkative. With adderall, I actually transform into what it seems a normal outgoing person would feel like.
It's not nearly so simple as CNS depressant & CNS stimulant working against each other and canceling the other out. I take both Adderall & Klonopin.I went to my Doc today and she knows I have been prescibed Ritalin. She is putting me on Klonopin 1mg a day.
