I take 1 mg of Klonopin and just applied for a position as a Primary Counselor at a Drug Treatment program. Will they hold it against me that I take Klonopin and not hire me. I have mild anxiety and cant sleep often so that is why my doctor wrote the script for me. I don't take it 2x's per day as prescribed, because 1 works right before bedtime. My anxiety decreases and it allows me to relax and get some sleep. But I am concerned it will keep me from getting this job I really want. Which is not fair because I have a prescription but its a drug treatment program and I don't want them to think my anxiety will be a barrier to me performing the job. The job I just quit was aware and it was not a problem for them that I take Klonopin. The Director was getting our psychiatrist to give her a script from Xanax.

From an outside perspective, I don't think you should have a problem taking most types of medications on the job, as long as it's legal; and clear to the employer that it doesn't interfere with your ability to complete tasks at work.

To my understanding, a doctor's note and/or a copy of your prescription, can vouch for you in the event that it becomes an issue.

I also think that the way you carry yourself is of equal importance. Whereas, they may simply overlook this if they have no reason to think you're hiding something.

Hopefully this helps and good luck on your new job! ;)
