When to Take Clonazepam

Clonazepam (Klonopin®) is a medication often used for the treatment of panic disorder and various types of epileptic seizures. It is available by prescription only and comes in the form of tablets and wafers (orally disintegrating tablets).
 
The recommended starting clonazepam dose for treating seizures in adults is 0.5 mg (or less) three times daily. Your healthcare provider may slowly increase your dose as necessary to control your seizures. For infants and children, your child's healthcare provider will calculate the starting clonazepam dose based on your child's weight.
 
The recommended starting clonazepam dosage for treating panic disorder is clonazepam 0.25 mg twice daily. Your healthcare provider may increase your dose if necessary to control your panic disorder symptoms.
 
There are no specific guidelines on when clonazepam should be taken, as long as you spread out your three doses each day. For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Clonazepam may cause serious problems if you take it in higher dosages or for a longer period of time than your healthcare provider recommends.
