Sometimes the only thing that helps me is 3mg of clonozepam. I do this once or twice a week sometimes. It seems to kill some sort of "cycle" of anxiety.

If you still have symptoms after taking it, you might try talking to your doc about trying this, i.e. upping the dosage until it is effective but only using it infrequently. It's a fairly safe drug if you up the dosage in .5mg increments and don't take other depressants. To me, habituation is a much bigger hazard than short-term oversedation, so I have an absolute hard limit of twice a week maximum (and rarely use it that often).

My pdoc was a bit taken aback when I did this. I mean, it wasn't working, so I just took more until it did, LOL, and then told him about it at the next appointment. (I am not recommending this; I would have talked to him about it first if I knew then what I know now.)

He was used to prescribing it as an ongoing daily medication; however, he went along with it, especially because I average significantly less than the 30mg per month he had prescribed.
