    All the posters have excellent advice. I take it daily (.5mg twice). However, I'd caution you against thinking that this pill will prevent future attacks. As in stop them cold. Best to say it helps mitigate the severity of attacks. I'm not sure what your dosage is. But, yeah, take the minimal amount. And, really, sometimes just knowing the pill is available can really help calm you down.

    Does it work better than Ativan? I have been on Ativan for a little over a week now and it doesn't help one bit.

    Hi. I use clonazepam and I have had nothing but wonderful, effective, and consistent results. Besides, if the one you're on isn't helping at all what's the harm in trying. Just saying. But whatever choice you make, make it for yourself. You know what to do. Listen to your intuition.

    Same here, I've tried meds that have given me horrible results. But some like clonazapam has helped tremendously over the past few months. As far as the medicine prescribed goes it's literally all trial and error.

    Clonazepam worked like a charm for me when I used to get panic attacks. I was prescribed to take .5mg two times a day as needed, so I didn't take them regularly, only when I had a panic attack. I still have some that I keep in my purse - even though I haven't had a panic attack in years - just knowing I have them if needed keeps me at ease Everyone has different experiences with each medication, best of luck with this one !

    I take 1/4 of a .5 twice a day some times 3 times. Perscribed to take .5 twice daily until my Latuda kicks in and to get me over this hump. I tried xanax first and did not like how it made me feel. Good one minute and crashing soon after. I do not do well on ssri's according to the test I had done my body metabolizes the medication to fast. I do although like wellbutrin but my Body metabolizes it to slowly so j can only take every other day.

    For whatever reason, clonazepam never worked for me when I took it.
