Re: What dose klonopin?

klonopin dosing is weird b/c there's benzo-phobia to deal with AND it has a super-long half-life. Here's my suggestion, since you seem to be freaking out:

take 1-1.5 mgs at **dinner** (it takes about 4 hours to peak out) and then that should help you sleep, at least for a couple days. If you need extra, you can probably make do with .5mgs or so in the day, in one dose or maybe divided up.

After that, see how you feel, and go up or down accordingly. 1-3mgs/day klonopin is fine; doses apparently can go up to 6-8mgs w/o any serious problems, although personally I'd try not to go quite that high unless you have other issues (bipolar, schizoaffective) that the klonopin is working on as well.

Since the half-life is so long, you can do it at nite and still feel it in the day, sans the drowsiness...the optional booster dose(s) help keep you even, and you may not even need them.

Good luck!
