Customer Question

I just started today on Clonazepam .5mg but it did not work and I am very panicky. I have lorezapam 1 mg and would like to take one because I can't seem to control the panic attack. How long do I have to wait to take the lorezapam?

The clonazepam is more of a long term help...I think that you will see better results to take it consistently ..

I think if you have already some lorazepam prescribed that would be fine to add 1mg dose should faster to control and settle your panic down tonight ...

Tomorrow continue the Klonapin ( probably dry mouth due anxiety...)

Some build up of Klonapin may be more helpful for anxiety than just the first day ...

Follow up with your doctor of course
