Maximum therapeutic dose of Clonazepam is 2mg/day for not more than 4-6weeks. Medicines are optimised till the response come and anxiolytics are generally tapered of. You are expected to maintain regular follow up with your psychiatrist. Current symptoms are suggestive of mood disorder and you need to see your psychiatrist asap so that proper medicines can be prescribed.
Can I take Feliz s 10 & Lonazep .25 mg at night for anxiety disorder & lack of sleep
Dr. Jyoti Kapoor Madan
Psychiatrist
Psychiatric evaluation is based on history, clinical symptoms, personality factors, ongoing psychosocial stressors and frequency and severity of symptoms. It requires direct interaction with the patient on a regular basis. Once diagnosed, a management plan is formed based on intensity and frequency of symptoms and associated biological and psycho social factors. A complete solution to ones problems in a single question is thus not possible. I suggest you to visit a psychiatrist in your vicinity for clinical evaluation.
