I have a job interview this afternoon and I'm more nervous than is healthy. Is taking a Klonopin a good idea?

I have a prescription at home for a very low dose (I think 15 mg? I don't have access to it right this minute.) I've had it for over a year and only taken it a couple of times, and don't remember much about its effect on me one way or another, except that it made me incredibly tired and depressed the next day. I'm fine with that in this case, but am also worried that it will make me even more spacey than I feel at the moment. I didn't sleep well last night, so am a lovely combo right now of jittery and foggy-brained.
The times that I took it before were for lower-key social events such as a family member's wedding, rather than for situations where I'm supposed to be intellectually "on."
Does anyone have any experience with this? Thanks.
