    For me, it takes about 5-10 minutes to begin to take effect. The benzodiazepines are very quick-acting medications.

    Xanax works quicker but klonopin lasts longer. I would say about 45 minutes would be right...not quick enough for me. I take it for anxiety also.

    I take it every evening and sometimes during the day. In the evening I take .05mg and it can take a while for it to kick in. I take it with my Lexapro. However, when I take it during the day I break it into 4 parts. AND it seems to kick in about 20 mins after I take it. Kind of strange but it works. Today I took a half of a 0.5mg tab. It worked in about 20 mins.

    It works faster for me if I put the pill under my tongue and let it dissolve. You might try that if you haven't already. Good luck!
