Can Clonazepam be taken twice a day?

I have a prescription/bottle o Clonazepam 0.5 mg tablets my doctor prescribed in May. I have not been taking it since July because my prescription says use as needed . I am in a very stressful period right now and wonder if it is correct to take 1 - 2 times a day at this time?

Thanks for asking. I understand your concern.
Ideally Clonazopam should be started with a low dosage... you should start taking 0 .25 mg once a day .. raising the dose by 025 gradulally over 3 days &so on till you get desired effect.
Still as the prescription was many months back,you should ideally recheck with your pescribing doctor according to your convinience
