everyone reacts to medications differently
escitalopram 20mg is the higher and maximum dose you need, 10mg is really a starting dose.

talk to your doctor about increasing the dose up to 20mg.
yes, escitalopram is taken once a day.
clonazepam can be taken twice or three times a day depending on how your doctor prescribes it to you.
