For the people that take Klonopin daily, how much do you take with each dose, how many times a day and at what times do you take it?

2 mg. at breakfast and bedtime and 1 mg. at lunch and dinner (PRN on the luch and dinner ones, so there are weeks that I don't take those ones at all).

I take 1mg once per day. I tend to have addiction problems and take more and more and more, so for me the simple dosing schedule keeps me pretty on track. I don't know if that's the best way to take it... just the best way for me to stick to my dose.

I am on 1 m.g. twice a day right now.

My husband is on .5 twice a day.

My husband's pdoc informed us recently that intially half life of k was thought to be 12 hours but it has been found recently to be more like 6--9. I have no source for that other than pdoc but he seemed pretty on top of things. He told us the whole history of klonapin it was great.

He also knew a lot about zoloft. He was a sweetie, too.

Back in the day, when my anxiety was un-tamed and wild, I took 1mg four times daily. Now I am scripted 1mg b.i.d., but usually just take one tablet at bedtime to ward off withdrawal.

2 mg at night when I go to sleep, 1 mg mid of night when I wake up after 4-6 hrs so that I can get back to sleep. So the answer is twice, though the dosages are different.

It varies depending on what mood/emotional state I am in. Usually, I just use it PRN, and that can be anywhere from once a month to a few times a week (0.5 mg). When everything in my world blows up in my face (like recently), I take it more often, though I'm always hesitant to take it daily. However, my pdoc has advised me that while I am going through all of the turmoil and pain I'm in, I should be taking it every day. So I now take 0.5 mg twice daily-- morning and late afternoon. If I am going to be under a lot of extra stress, I either take another one, or take Vistaril.

My pdoc, when she first prescribed klonopin some 6 years ago, said that it is better to stop a fire while it is just smouldering than waiting for it to burst into flames.

I am very sensitive to meds... I take .5 in the morning and then the other half about 8 hr's later. Sometimes I feel too drugged so I take .25, then another 4 hrs later, and then another 4 hrs..etc..

but then I feel a bit anxious.. So, i am trying to keep on the half in the morning , half later in the day routine.
