I am taking 1 mg of klonopin twice a day and it helps but makes me sleepy. I have been on it for over a year and still am sleepy. I was thinking of switching to xanax will it make me less drowsy? What are your guys thoughts? Any input please. I need to call me doc. soon. Thanks....

Reduce your dose. Klonopin is suppose to have a life of some say 17 hrs where as Xanax is probably a 1/3 or 1/2 of that. If you switch to xanax you'll just be needing to take it more often.

I've never taken klonopin and have only been prescribed xanax for a month or so (and I rarely take it- only if I REALLY have to) but it makes me very sleepy. I am prescribed .5mg and if I take it at night to help me sleep, I could sleep without interruption for 12 hours.. I think I just need to get used to it though.. I definitely do feel such relief with my anxiety though when I take it..
