Have you tried just taking it at night? Some people get a paradoxical reaction and take it at night, and it works fine. You might wake up raring to go and wouldn't that be cool!
When I was put on Nardil I was warned that this is not unusual and just see how it worked for me, that people react differently. As it happened I liked a pot of coffee and two Nardils for an eye opener, then I went like a rabbit all day. And slept really well. Part of that may have been not being depressed though.
You may continue to adjust to the drug- I don't know how long you've been on it. Insomnia is a common side effect of MAOIs and I had to use Ambien to sleep for months. As long as you aren't upping the total Klonopin dose taking it at night shouldn't be a big deal. You need more than five hours of sleep though. A sleep deficit will mess you up, either by mania or just ill health. You really need to work this out with the doc, and if your appt. isn't soon a call may be in order. Healing from depression goes better with your sleep cycle in whack.
I'm so glad you're doing well.
