In brief: Not sure why you

Say you are too young for this medication.
Clonazepam is a long acting benzodiazepine medication that is very effective at lowering baseline anxiety, which makes it much harder to get to panic. Short acting benzo's can be effective in stopping panic attacks once they occur, but are much more potentially addicting.
