Side affects today was I woke up sleepy thinking a lil too much (spacedout) & also couldn't focus or concentrate as good and for some reason I got mad easily. My mother was annoying me to the point I felt like I was gona have a panick attack but I controled it then my after symptoms were me feeling more sleepy drowsy couldn't walk right and then felt weird like if I wasn't being myself .. I need to know how many days or if I need a higher dose for it to work completey? Are these side affects normal? Please answer, I would appreciate it :)

Dear DoubleMM, sometimes people add things that make us change our answers, and the fact that you had difficulty breathing today, and added this info to the post, is one of those times. Please call your dr tomorrow and tell him/ her you had difficulty breathing. If you are on other cns meds, such as tranquilizers, rx pain meds, muscle relaxers or drink alcohol, you could quit breathing. Please do call your dr, this is a very serious side effect of clonazepam. Patti

From my experience Clonazepam works within 30-60 minutes after you ingest it. As far as side effects, for me it took one year, approx. to finally ease up. However, the side effects were manageable for me. My suggestion to you would be to continue to take as your doctor prescribed, but to also not to hesitate to keep your doctor in the loop at all times.
