My psychiatrist prescribed Klonopin 0.5 mg twice a day as needed.
Today, I have severe anxiety and I am very frightened.
Is two 0.5mg pills a 'high' dose. I know Klonopin can be addictive.

I have OCD and has gotten control over me.
I am very 'addicted' to magical thinking. When I see certain numbers or letters I think
that they are signs from Hashem. They always turn out to be something negative.
I can't convince myself to ignore them and I sit for hours trying to argue with myself.
Sometimes like today the signs seem so real

Klonopin 1mg is a high dose, especially if taken more than once a day. It may be needed for now until other meds like Luvox with Risperdal etc can kick in. Discuss with your doctor the medication plan for now and in the future. Let me know how you make out.
