Klonopin dose insufficient, I need HELP!!

Posted by Laree on April 25, 2005, at 12:27:57

I have been taking Klonopin for severe anxiety and panic attacks for about 6 months now @ .5 mg/2x a day. I am also on Adderall (50 mg./day for about 2 years for ADHD) and Lexapro (10 mg./day).
Here's my dilemma. My pdoc was originally reluctant to rx the Klonopin at any dose. It finally got upped to current dosage but I feel I need at least 2 mg./day (early on in the day) to function correctly.
I have been with the same pdoc for almost 3 years now. I have run out of my script early and am now in a big, panicky mess. I am finding it difficult to function and have days until I can get my script refilled. Should I just call & be honest with him about it? Is 2 mg./day really a lot for severe anxiety/panic?? I read one source that said it would be a baseline dose for what I have...and I am only getting 1/2 of that!
I think I am on the brink of losing my job (in which I do not have ANY medical coverage) and I cannot take off any days to "hibernate" this week due to panic. Somebody, anybody, help?! please!!
