About 1.25mg Klonopin.

While Medline could very well be right, this is really something you should discuss with the doctor prescribing you the medication.

That's right. And then you have to try it out to find the optimal dose.

2.5 mg Ativan = 1.25 mg Xanax = 1.25 mg Klonopin = 12.5 mg Valium

Both Medline and I are disagreeing with the majority of benzo equivalency charts here that say Klonopin is twice as potent as Xanax (my experience suggests 1 to 1 is a lot closer to reality and that most charts overstate the potency of Klonopin).

Those charts are useless when it comes to Klonopin. 1mg Klonopin is just a little bit stronger than 1mg Xanax IMHO, maybe 10-20%, or maybe it's 1:1 just with longer duration of action.

I have to take 2 mgs of Klonopin in order to feel relief from my anxiety. Xanax makes me angry. And Klonopin only gets rid of the physical symptoms of anxiety.

Like all Benzos Klonopin works against the anxiety itself, not just the physical symptoms.
