The max recommended dose of klonopin given for panic/anxiety is supposed to be 4mg daily, which IMO, is a fairly high dose:. https://www.drugs.com/dosage/clonazepam.html. When you start getting into doses over 4mg, I personally think that's very high..The more you take, the more difficult it's going.
Klonopin is also sometimes given as an anti-seizure med...The max dose for someone with seizures is 20mg.
Panic - 1 mg/day; start at 0.25 mg divided into 2 doses, raise to 1 mg after 3 days; dose either twice daily or once at bedtime; maximum dose generally 4 mg/day.

I'd say you're probably at the highest clinical dose for anxiety/panic, but I'm sure there are extenuating circumstances with some patients that the doctor may deem fit to allow them to go to above that does.
So I think high and low doses are a YMMV-thing.
I take 2mgs twice/day, sometimes an extra if I have an anxiety attack or feel one coming on.

Most starting dosages of klonopin is .5mg. I take anywhere from .5mg to 4mg a day depending on my anxiety levels. However, I've had this RX for 4 years now, so even 6mg doesn't make me stupid. If it's your first time trying them, stick with a low dose of .5mg to gauge how they will make you feel. Good luck!.

^^ clonazepam lasts a long time. It's a lousy sleep aid because it comes on slow, and you will likely wake up feeling very groggy from the effects. Aside from treating people suffering from seizures, clonazepam is a heavy duty, high power benzo which is an anti anxiety for bad cases who need relief all day long.
