Going down the road with Benz0s is a tough decision. They do work, but you have to be prepared to keep using them, for a very long time. The manufacturers dodge this by labeling them as “for short term use, of up to two week,” which is BS.

0.5 per day is not going to really do much, although it was good to try. I would not suggest it, but depending on your weight, and height, you would need at least 0.5 three times a day, or 1.0, three times a day. They have 2.0’s, but you really don’t want to go there, if you don’t have to. I wish I never tried any of them ever, but that ship has sailed.

May be required to stop using them at some point. There are no redo's

I am only scripted 30 0.5 klonopin per month so can stop any time a doctor is willing to alter my treatment plan.

The 0.5 Klon, 30 per month, is pretty much targeted so if you have an anxiety attack, you have one (obviously) per day, to take the edge off. If this was working for you, the best bet would be to only take the one, if you really need it, and skip it if you don’t.

This is a way to use them, and hopefully not get a tolerance, or dependancy. The problem with any Benz0 is, just like the using them for insomnia, if you get in the habit of taking them every night, you can have rebound insomnia, if you stop taking them. In other words, you possibly would have worse insomnia than you started with. This also happens if you take them for anxiety, so if you can do without them, you are much better off not taking them every day.
