I'm trying to switch to something else besides over the counter sleep meds. I have a script for 1mg klonipon. What do you suggest to make me go to sleep?
This is a good point. Some benzos (such as Valium and Xanax) only last several hours when taken occasionally, but Klonopin tends to fade away over >5 hours, making it a better choice when early waking is the problem.Klonopin may be better for staying asleep later in the night because it is not a fast acting benzo. I suffer from early waking so if I take one before bed (even though I'm already tired) it keeps me under for an extra hour or two.
I don't take it regularly right now because of fear of dependence so I don't know how fast the effect would wear off on me.
how much do you take daily?1. Dosage needed would vary greatly depending on the person. If you have no prior experience with benzos, you won't likely need much.
2. Benzos make rotten sleep aids if you need something for regular use as the drowsiness effect typically wears off within a couple of weeks. I'm fully awake despite being the largest known benzo consumer on this board.
