I only take clonapepam 0.5 mg once in a while is I am having a restless night tingling in my arms and legs and can't sleep. Is it dangerous to take it once a month? I had 60 tables prescribed about 2 years ago and have about 17 left. Is this not good to do?

Hi. If you are taking clonzepam once a month I don't think you have anything to worry about. I would ask the pharmacist if they are still good after 2 years but my daughter who is in college gets anxiety and she takes .5 once a day and sometimes she doesn't even take it. Ask your doctor if maybe taking ambiem once in awhile could help but if the clonzepam helps then I don't see a problem with taking it. Do you take any more meds? Hope this helps. TC Laura :)

Not dangerous to take once in a while, I only take mine when I absolutely need it. The pharmacist will say that any medication older than a year is not good anymore. If you are having tingling in your extremeties you may have a circulation problem, ever mentioned this tingling to the doctor?
