Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: The impact of this daily (1 mg. capsule three times daily) treatment is quite helpful and I have no issues with side effects. However an added benefit is that it works well w/my blood pressure level, as it , prevents it from elevating and assists my blood pressure from rising to an excessive, life threatening level. As well I also meditate and spend time reading or relaxing as an additional benefit for both the panic disorder, ie; anxiety elevation level and blood pressure elevation.

  • Burden

Dosage: 2 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: After taking 1 mg of Clonazapam twice/day for over 10 yrs., my new PCP informed me that it could cause cognitive disfunction. Since that is the last thing I want, I weaned myself totally off of it about 6 wks. ago; however, I was having sleeping problems and some nights (mornings), I wouldn't fall asleep until 4-5:00am. Because of this, I am now taking .25 mg before bedtime and plan to discontinue that in the future, and maybe just take it if absolutely necessary.
