Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
you should have let your doctor who was prescribing your klonopin that you were taking one or two more a night because your anxiety symptoms were worse.
the adult recommended dose for klonopin can be 0.5 to 2mg two to three times a day for anxiety symptoms.
you have to call up your doctor who is prescribing this to you to let them know
you can also try going to the ER and explaining to them you have severe anxiety and have run out of your klonopin. they could give you a short 5 day emergency prescription of klonopin until you are able to see your doctor again.
have you tried to call up your doctor yet?
