I take Klonopin for my panic disorder. Are there any other effective treatments I should try? I've tried many over the years but nothing besides benzos and ketamine have worked.

      @Mishka i take the mixture of klonopin and paxil. I like klonopin bc of its long acting. Also the paxil helps too bc its an anti depressant w mostly ant anxiety qualities. Its nice hearing klonopin helps others too. I just hate how docs are sooo hesitant these days too put ppl on benzos. Its sad. I think soo long as ur taking other non narc meds w it to curb ur anxiety or using skills that are coping mechanims like what u said. Therapy and dbt are best too. I look at it as a long term cancer pt taking morphine as needed.

      Hydroxezine is a good, milder, non-addictive alternative. I went to it after being on Xanax for 6 years

      Klonopin is the only thing that's helped me.

      Can learn many different coping mechanisms and can try new pills if this one has not worked after a week or two?? I am aware of this Klonopin being fast acting so the clonazepam/Klonopin I tried sent me into a dark depressed episode after a week so it is just not something that my body agreed with.

        @WhatADay if it had such a raw dark effect on you please do not take it and tell your doctor it effected you badly and you wish to have the documented. I would ask for a genetic test that will show you a list of medications that work with your genetics! I got one and that how I found out klonopin would work! Idk if there’s dms on here but if there is you can dm me and we can talk about coping skills! I’m still learning too 💕

      Honestly I haven’t found anything else that works for me. I haven’t tried what you’ve tried because my doctors were hesitant to even put me on klonopin until I switched to a better physician. I think that coping mechanisms work well with klonopin though! I take either cold showers or sometimes I jsut rock back and forth. Reading or listening to an adult book while curled under a weighted blanket can help me during an attack where I need to take klonopin. Lmk if this is helpful or if you need more advice!
