Dosage: 4 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I was prescribed Klonopin because of my dystonia which came on at the same time as my PD. I had trouble sleeping at night partially because I would get severe pain in the arch of my foot and the calf of my leg. It would wake me up in the middle of the night screaming in pain. Then my foot would turn on it's side and my toes would curl up making it impossible for me to walk. I also was having daytime problems. I would be walking somewhere and in an instant my foot would turn on it's side & my toes would crunch in. It is excruciatingly painful, and you have no control over it. I have to sit and wait for my foot to loosen up for 15-45 minutes. I have only a few episodes a month since Klonopin. Before, I couldn't even guess how many times it happened in 1 month. I take 1mg in the am, 1mg in the afternoon, and 2mg before bed. It has been a great benefit to me.

    Not at all hard to take
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.
