Hey there!

Klonopin "should" work pretty shortly after you take it.

You are right though about the depressing side-effect of Klonopin. It is the only benzo that has actually been shown to decrease the release of serotonin, so it very well could be causing some depression issues (or could cause cause more depression than the others).

Ativan is very similar to Xanax, and is only half as strong for panic.. ie. .25mg of Xanax=.5mg of Ativan.

It is not metabolized in the liver so it is safer in that aspect as well....

It's not "as good" for panic, Alprazolam (Xanax) is the better alternative, IMO

It's always best to ask a doctor:) I agree with you though!
Thanks BB25 -- I thought I'd responded to you but apparently forgot to "Submit". Ah well, I was rather stunned :yawn: yesterday, having taken the full dose.

I do find clonazepam depressing, but I've cut my dosage in half (and I've now just taken 1/2 of a .25mg tablet, so we'll see how that works). I shall ask for Xanax at my next visit (if not sooner -- I'm still quite weak).

Did you mean that[i]Xanax[/i] is not metabolized in the liver? :confused:

Thx again.
