Mary, I'm glad you're doing better! Klonopin definitely will stay in your system at a more steady state so you won't have the ups and downs some people do with Xanax. Xanax is a great rescue med, and also great for people who have occasional attacks, or when someone is getting better. I take Xanax XR (the extended release) right now, and I'm getting a little frustrated with it. It doesn't last as long as it claims, and it isn't as good as Klonopin as far as a medicine that will cover you for a long period of time, IMHO. But when you mentioned taking a nap then pigging out, OMG, I can totally relate! When my doc upped my dosage of Xanax XR recently (my Zoloft is helping but not quite where it should be as far as dosage), if I was home, I would just zonk out on the couch or my chair and I'd awake calm but STARVING, no matter what I'd eaten earlier. It was really weird, so I lowered my dose a little. Maybe it's that flood of adrenaline that exhausts us, we sleep and then, I don't know why we want to eat! And if Lexapro doesn't work out, there are lots of good SSRIs/SNRIs out there that can be substituted. Take care.
