Re: Klonopin dose insufficient, I need HELP!! !!!

I am rx'ed 1 mg./day of Klonopin and have been unable to function on most days on that dose. I have found I do beautifully when I take 2 mg./day, and have not noticed any nasty side effects from that dose.
My pdoc has been reluctant to up my dose at all, he just wants to try and augment it with Gabitril or Neurontin or other drugs I've tried, cannot afford, haven't worked, and given me nasty side effects.
Eventually I do want to taper down on the Klonopin, but I cannot afford counseling regularly right now and the attitude of my pdoc is, I think, fueling my anxiety & panic further. I am always petrified that I won't have enough medicine, relief, etc...
Any comments? ;)

> Call the pdoc and tell him what's going on. Are you saying that you are taking 2mg of klonopin and that it's helping you and that's why you're running out? Or is even that dose not helping you. Fondly, Phillipa
