Customer Question

I have been prescribed 1mg of klonopin 3times a day for 5 years. I unfortunately missed my appt fri but i was able to reach my doctor yesterday and she called me in a refill. But early sat morning i was having panic a panic attack, my boyfriend was worried and gave me 2. 1mg of xanxax which i have never been on. Which made me very sleepy which my regular klonopin medication never does. How long will it take for me to feel normal?

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Xanax is stronger than klonopin in action.
The effect of sleepiness can remain upto 24 hours usually.
So you can resume klonopin after 24 hours or when you feel to your normal self.
Please do not mix these two medications in future.
