I took xanax for years for panic disorder and finally told my pdoc it wasnt working and asked her to up my dose. She then switched me to klonopin, I take 3mg a day and I havent had a panic attack (like i did between my doses of xanax) I dont know what I would do with out it now...But, I know how pdocs are about benzo's so just explain that to him/her that the klonopin is working great, but in order to function at work etc you may need a higher dose. At one point my pdoc gave me .5 mg of ativan for my panic and i called her and laughed saying it mise well be a sugar pill. it did nothing at all. I think they will always prescribe the lowest dose at first, but hopefully they will understand your situation.
