My panic attacks have greatly increased lately, so my doctor told me to double the dose and take it every day until college lets out (2 1/2 weeks or so).

That's 2 mg Klonopin every day. Doesn't that sound like a lot? It sounds like a lot to me... And I'm still worried about addiction potential...

2 1/2 weeks are not much.

I take 2mg of klonopin everyday and have been for two years. It helps me with SA and helps me to sleep. I did go off of it because I got pregnant and the withdrawl was horrible but I made it through it and now I am back on it and will be on it probably all my life. I can't live without it.......:yes

My new doc prescribed 1mg three times a day but that's too strong. I take maybe half that.On a really bad day I might take 2 mg spread out.

I was prescribed it for anger more than anxiety. Does this help with anger?

No, Benzos are weight neutral for most people.

For about two years now I have take 2mg twice a day so 4mg a day and I still think I need more.

Funny I am not overweight by any means 140 5'6'' and well its funny I was making a doctors appoinment and they wanted to know what medications and the dose I said klonopin 4mg a day she said are you sure that would leave most people falling down. I read her the bottle she was amazed. It made me laugh but I could not live without it I am scare that when I do decide to have children that I will have to stop taking it! It is what keeps me from freaking out.

All benzos do is relieve general/physical anxiety and eliminate panic attacks. They don't help me with social anxiety in the least.
