... my dose is 1 mg 3 times a day. The Klonopin was starting to make me tired, too. I took my first attivan at about 12:30, and I don't feel really tired like I always did with klonopin. If I am not mistaken, I am also in a little better of spirits! (Always a good thing!:D) how many times a day did you take the .5 mgs? (9 replies)

I had a panic attack three years ago and went to the hospital and they gave me 1mg of xanax and that put me on my behind and I am 6 foot 8 and weigh 275!!! I would talk to your doctor and...

... I took 2mg last night to sleep. It is now 12 noon and it is still in my system. Is there anything I can do to flush it out? How long will it take to go away? I'm at work, groggy and bumping into things. Thanks so much. Marisa (2 replies)

... I was on Ativan for a while. I liked it but then they switched me to Klonopin. Ativan doesn't stay in your system like klonopin. I liked it better because I wasn't so tired. I took .5mg and split it. Just took it when needed. What is your dose? (9 replies)

... My first prescribed med was Paxcil Cr. That night was the worst night of my life. It gave me the worst anxiety, jaw clinching , tingles, hair on end experience. The worst part was that it is a time release drug. Just when I would start to ride through these feelings, off I would go on another surge. Can anyone give me some hope for a medication without all the side... (3 replies)
