I've had anxiety and panic attacks for the past decade (since my early twenties) which has been resolved with daily low usage of Klonopin.
In this time as well, I have also had bouts of severe chronic anxiety that can last for weeks at a time. It randomly comes on and can stay with me for 5 days or 5 weeks and then goes away.
In the past, I have tried to alleviate it by sometimes increasing my dosage of Klonopin by as much as 5 times the recommended dosage, yet this does absolutely 'nothing'. It's as almost if when under severe anxiety, my body simply is saying that Klonopin is not the solution.
I thought all benzos were the same essentially? I was told that perhaps I should consider Xanax for situations like this.
Can someone tell me why Klonopin doesn't work during these bouts of severe anxiety.. even when increased by as much as 5 times my daily dosage? Should I consider Xanax or another alternative?
Thank you in advance.
