> > You mention that before you were taking Klonopin, .5mg Xanax and 40mg Inderal would be your pre-performance-anxiety coctail. Now that you Are taking Klonopin (another benzo like Xanax) instead of Xanax, wouldn't just adding the 40mg of Inderal to the Klonopin do the trick?

Do you think it's the difference in half-life that gives the Klonopin a feeling of being weaker than the Xanax, or do you think the chart is just wrong?

Yeah, I don't know how you could simulate the pressure of an interview, but you would at least know if you could function adequately on the combo (e.g. that it wasn't going to make you too drowsey, etc.).

Anyway, maybe my ideas weren't that good...I have experience with Xanax, but none with Klonopin. I wish you good luck on the job interview. Hope you do well :-)
