Doctor :   hi
Doctor :   how can i help you
User :   Hello. I have severe anxiety. I have been prescribed xanax and I also have Clonozopem. I understand the differences between the two medications and how Clonozopem lasts longer and how the xanax works fast. I am not taking them both at the exact same time. The clonozopam keeps me mellow throughout the day, but at night does not help me sleep, so I take xanax so that I can just fall asleep. the dosage amounts are .25-.50 of clonozopam in the am, and .5-1.5mg of xanax at night or if I have a panic attack. Just want to confirm this is ok. Again, I am NOT taking them at the EXACT same time.
Doctor :   okay
Doctor :   no issues
User :   okay so that is fine then? And also, this is the first time I use this system, are you a licensed MD?
Doctor :   I am a General Practitioner, I believe I can help you within my expertise and If required I shall recommend a specialist.
