Talk to physician: It is very easy to develop tolerance to Klonopin (clonazepam) please don't take more than prescribed. If you are finding that symptoms are not being adequately treated - talk it over with your prescribing physician. Take care.

Don't: Never ever take more of a drug than prescribed. Klonopin (clonazepam) is a controlled drug and cannot be refilled early. It can have nasty withdrawal symptoms if you run out early. It also can be addicting and should not be the sole treatment for an anxiety disorder, unless lower doses are used. It can contribute to auto accidents due to its sedating effects.
