Hey:
This exchange about dosage times is very useful to me, thanks for asking the question!
I still wake several times a night, despite taking Klonopin .5mg at bedtime. For me, the night time awakenings are very much a feature of my GAD and RLS (restless leg syndrome). I sleep very lightly, wake on average every 2-3 hours. The one improvement I've found in this regard since being on Klonopin/Celexa is that I quickly fall back to sleep again. Rather than lying there ruminating about unimportant things. (I used to awake and find myself thinking/pondering things, sometimes questioning whether I'd really ever been asleep!).
I have the opposite problem to your early morning awakenings...I can't wake up!!! It takes a full hour from alarm going off to actually being roused enough to get out of bed, no matter how important the reason for getting up is. I don't fully "energize" for a further 2 hours!
This may be the lateness of Klonopin dose...so you might want to try taking a dose right at bed time. I'm gonna start taking it earlier!
BTW, don't discount Utopizen's depression advice - I have always denied any depression too, but I think I've had mild depression that the Celexa has now lifted somewhat, due to being in a constant state of anxiety for years. Sleep disturbances of any kind can be depression related.
Your stimulant use may contribute to sleep problems too.
Keep posting, I'm wanting to compare notes on sleep issues, with GAD people.
Thanks.
Jas
