I don't think you should increase your dose because it might impair your thinking during the interview. Not in very serious ways but you do need to be "sharp" to perform well. I once did an interview on too much Ativan and it made me too disinhibited and I revealed too much information. A small dose will help, but a large one wont. I actually read that somewhere in the www.biopsychiatry.website. Low doses of benzos improve cognitive performance in some anxious patients but above a certain dose they do more harm than good.

I am wondering what I should do to prepare for a job interview. Should I "juice up" my normal Klonopin dose with some Xanax? Add some more Klonopin? What do you do under these circumstances?
