I am sorry your daughter is having bad anxiety symptoms.
if the clonazepam works for her to decrease anxiety symptoms for now, you can use that for her 2-3 times a day as needed.
there are other agents which over time can help decrease her anxiety symptoms
sertraline or paroxetine can help over time decrease her anxiety levels.
you should talk to her psychiatrist about medications like aripiprazole or risperidone or quetiapine which can be used with sertraline or paroxetine to help them work better to decrease anxiety symptoms.
let me know if you have questions
you can also accept the additional phone consultation if you would like to talk by phone.
there is a charge per question to be answered here by a doctor.

if she was taking 15-20mg of diazepam before, yes, she can safely take another 2x0.5mg of clonazepam and 5mg of diazepam tonight if needed.
her doctor and psychiatrist would also need to know this as well.
