    I just read the posts on anxiety and noticed a lot were on Klonipin. My Doc. put me on a dosage of 0.05--this sounds like a very low dose to me and was wondering the dosage that you all are on. I have always had high anxiety, generalozed anxiety, social phobia and panic. Thanx for your input! Cat

    The usual dose for the Klonopin is 1 mg. at bedtime for sleep and .5 mg. during the day divided into small doses (1/4 tablet under the tongue) for anxiety and sensory overload. I get by at night with .75 mg. and usually don't need all four quarters of a tablet to handle my anxiety and sensory overload. It also helps with tinnitus and RLS and muscle spasms. It has kept me from clenching my jaws during sleep and relieved the TMJ headaches.

    Read Dr. Paul Cheney's article on Klonopin in the library here. It's an excellent article.

    Love, Mikie
