Klonopin (clonazepam) for Bipolar Disorder: "I have been taking Wellbutrin SR for about 4 yrs. In combo with a few other different meds. I didn't think I would ever find my cocktail. But recently I do believe I finally have found it. So I'm on Wellbutrin SR, Seroquel, and Klonopin. I was taking Lamictal and Ativan before. But unfortunately got the Lamictal rash. I love the combo I have now. I have been sleeping like a baby. No more 100 miles an hour at bedtime."

Klonopin (clonazepam) for Panic Disorder: "I've had panic disorder for 36 years, in addition to ptsd, and ocd. Clonazepam 1mg twice daily has enabled me to have some sort of life. Panic disorder reduces quality of life, and I more or less live in a bubble. However, integrated with CBT, I am finding that my "bubble" is expanding. I'm able to go out of the house, drive, and function throughout the day. After taking it for several years with success, my new psych wants me to discontinue it due to addictive properties. So, back to living in my bubble, I guess. Why do they create a useful medication, and then tell you that you can't take it any longer? Drs overprescribe, FDA cracks down, and those that benefit from it are left in the dirt."

For Anxiety: "Clonazepam (Klonopin) works wonderfully for anxiety. I love that it is nonaddictive, there's not need to take it everyday for it to work. Having a stressful day that you can't handle, (with my boarderline personality disorder this happens a lot), just take a pill or two to ease the edge. The feelings of anger are still there, but it relaxes the tension in your mind and body to rid the potency of the anger, so it is more tolerable. it is also 100% covered by medicaid, but without insurance, the cost for a prescription of .5mg for 90 pills a month is less than $3"

For Anxiety: "I was on Klonopin for 16 yrs. now side effects. Been off for three years now going through life changes I am experiencing a lot of panic attacks and anxiety racing thoughts scared to be alone and running to try to avoid these feeling. But, it wouldn't stop. Now I am on Klonopin again for a little help to get through this tough time so I can think. Klonopin is my choice because I have been on it for so long I know what it does for me. When I need it and when I don't. Like I said before I haven't had a side effect and after I take just on pill I feel great clear thinking and focused. A lot of people can't take Klonopin but for me it's my life savor."

And careful analysis."

For Panic Disorder: "For panic attacks, this drug works like a dream. Takes away the panic attack and the only side effect is a little drowsiness if you have to take more than a pill or two per day. Normally, .25 of clonazepam works for me, but over the years, I've found it to be less effective and need to take .50mg of it to knock out the panic attack. I only take it for emergency situations. It can be addictive/habit forming, but I have not had this problem with it. Usually takes about 20 - 30 mins. for it to work for me and then I feel just fine."

Klonopin (clonazepam) for Panic Disorder: "This medication has done wonders for me and a lot of other people I know I swear I wouldn't ever wish panic anxiety disorder on my worst enemy's. It is the worst and I'm sure you all know that Klonopin has helped so very much. I Would have to say that it is definitely the best benzo and I have been on all of them at one point or another."

Klonopin (clonazepam) for Anxiety: "Anger. Anxiety. Stomach in a knot. Wanting to die. Then I take my Klonopin and a warm feeling envelops me. I'm suddenly calm. I'm reasonable and rational. The violence in my heart temporarily melts away. I'm not angry anymore. I take a short vacation from misery. Then I blissfully drift off to sleep. I won't take it often because I don't want to become addicted. But when things get unbearable, my Klonopin soothes my racing mind."

For Panic Disorder: "I've been prescribed Klonopin (1mg twice daily) for literally years and have yet to encounter another panic attack as of this writing. It's effects are amazing and while my physician keeps close tabs on me, I've yet to encounter any tolerance to it's effect. Since my anxiety and panic are so debilitating, I'm prescribed it with both Effexor and propranolol and honestly couldn't feel more any more normal. I hate to be tied to the medicinal 'ball and chain' but I'm finally freed from years of worry and panic and can now proudly state that I'm back to normal and living the challenging life I was meant to confront without a single twinge of anxiety/panic. For me, it could not get any better! :)"

For Restless Legs Syndrome: "Had RLS all my life could not explain the symptoms to my Doctor for years but finally when talking to my mother she explained she had it and told me what it was and my Doctor who is also a Pharmacist, prescribed clonazepam and it has worked fine for the past 15 years although I have noticed lately that I am having to take more than the stated 1-2 pills and take 2-3 before bed. I am only affected at night"

For Anxiety: "This has been the ONLY medication that has completely put a stop to my severe social anxiety/panic attacks. I've been on it for about a week. I am on .5 mg twice a day and I am able to actually leave my house and get stuff done without that cloud of anxiety over my head. About and hour to kick in and it lasts me usually 6 hours. Then I take another around 3pm. If I find it hard to sleep I take a 3rd one right before bed and snooze away like a baby. Never have I been able to wake before 7am with no anxiety and energy for the day. I have had no side effects and I am VERY sensitive to medication. I have no plans of stopping because this med changed my life in just one day"

For Insomnia: "For years I've been waking-up up to 40 times at night. No issue falling asleep but would wake up constantly & remember my dreams extremely well. Often unpleasant. I was totally exhausted and had to face busy days as a working mum. I was sent to a neurologist, put on antidepressants, finally had a polysomnography showing I had an irregular REM sleep. For an unknow reason (still unknow until this day) I wake up for a few seconds and go back to sleep, constantly. Doctor put me on Hypovase which didn't make much difference. I've now been on Clonazepam for a few months (from 0.25mg to 1g now) It allows me to stay asleep deeply for up to 4-6 hours on good days. It is not perfect but definitely helping. No side effects either. I feel much better."

Klonopin (clonazepam) for : "I have taken Klonopin along with Tramadol for about 13 years for Fibromyalgia. I take 1mg at night only and it helps sleep, muscle tension, anxiety from living in pain, and cuts down on the number of migraines I get. It can be a wonderful medicine for the right conditions. I know how much it helps me as whenever I've tried to go off of it or even cut it in half I feel much worse for weeks. I always end up going back to the 1 mg. it is worth it for me to take for the rest of my life as long as it is prescribed. My rheumatologist just keeps me on it and I pray if I ever move out of state which I know I will when my husband retires I can find another doc who has no problems with me staying on it. It's not fun to go off this med!"

For Anxiety: "The medication itself works very well for nerve and anxiety, however, other people don't like me on it. I either am sleeping or nodding or just an ass. You can also black out on this med and do some seriously dumb potential hurt yourself. Be careful and take as little as you can get by with."

Klonopin (clonazepam) for Bipolar Disorder: "Klonopin helps my social anxiety and generalized anxiety disorder associated with Bipolar Disorder I.

Klonopin (clonazepam) for Anxiety: "I took Klonopin daily for about a year due to a bout with anxiety and depression. I was put on an AD and added this after a few weeks as the AD was not helping my anxiety or depression. I took 0.25-0.5mg twice per day most of the time and had to change my AD twice over the first several months to get on the right one. Klonopin helped me alot during this time. I finally went back to Pristiq which had worked several years prior for me and after a few months was back to myself and with my Dr's OK I weaned off of the Klonopin and have been of it completely for almost two months now. I was terrified to stop it since I heard so many horror stories of benzo withdraw but I had no withdraw just as my Dr. had thought. Good luck!"

Klonopin (clonazepam) for Anxiety: "Was warned about benzo's by my first psychiatrist but in all fairness I haven't seen a (major) dosage increase. I first started with .25mg when I needed it. Mostly at night to .5mg again mostly at night. To then routinely taking .5mg in the morning and at night. Never straying to take it any more doses per day because of said addiction warnings. I have had some lapses in taking the prescribed amount for a couple days of which I paid for with loss of sleep but with any negatives I've found for this drug the positives have outweighed the negatives significantly. The biggest negative for me is the controlled substance and the hoops one must go through in order to maintain a routine for the medication."

For Panic Disorder: "A life saver to say nonetheless. I am currently on two 1mg tablets of Clonazepam a day. I must say I haven't felt better and since my doctor prescribed it I haven't had any anxiety attacks or random out of the blue panic attacks. I was doing the lab rat routine for years. All the basic SSRI"s and trilicylic anti-depressants just weren't doing it. Now I take my two tablets (1mg) a day and I couldn't be better. Combined with my 50mg trazadone -for my insomnia disorder- one a night before bed I couldn't be better. My quality of life has undeniably, drastically, and fortunately improved."

Klonopin (clonazepam) for Anxiety: "Okay, here is the thing with Klonopin. It's a drug that works perfectly. There is literally no way to be anxious on a high enough dose, and benzos will be your saving grace if you are suffering from several panic attacks a day or even if you're catatonic. It's also got a pretty good record for being safe, far as I know. Here's the bad part. Any drug that works too well, that allows you to feel too good on it, runs a high risk of dependency. Not only that, withdrawal from this drug is miserable and painful if not done currently and under supervision. You'll be told this is "not abusable as Xanax" because Xanax is common among recreational drug users. That's a fallacy. Klonopin is very easy to double up on and abuse. Do not mix with alcohol."

Klonopin (clonazepam) for Panic Disorder: "I'm a 24 year old male. Panic disorder and severe anxiety runs in my family. It is hereditary. I seen a Dr at the age of 16 and started on Xanax 0.5mg and Xanax worked till I was 19. My friend gave me a klonopin 1mg tablet during a panic attack while I was with him and had no Xanax with me. I like how klonopin worked compared to Xanax, seen my Dr a week later and at the time was on Xanax XR 2mg 2 tablets twice daily. I asked to switch Klonopin and he put me on Klonopin 2mg 1 tablet taken 5 times daily and it's what I take currently now and keeps the anxiety away."

For Anxiety: "I was prescribed 0.5 mgs twice a day as needed. Usually take it in the morning around 8 or 9 am and take the other around 7 or 8 pm. Klonopin is a life saver!! I was on Xanax before, but found that it made me zombie like and no matter how little or how much I would take, it didn't help my social anxiety like I needed, which is what I needed help for the most. I've been on klonopin for a few months and have never felt better since my anxiety started to emerge (about 3 1/2 years ago, I'm 21 now) it's definitely boosted my confidence especially in social situations. I'm also been prescribed 60mg of adderall a day, have been for over 10 years. Both combined definitely help when working."

For Anxiety: "Before this pill I had taken a many different anti-depressant as my family doctor stated that this would with my anxiety as well. This is BS! Anti-depressants only stunted my ability to do, act and everything else good about life. Yah sure it subdued my anxiety but over a long period and never consistent. I finally saw a psychiatrist and she prescribed Clonazepam and within a week my anxiety was at bay. My creative side returned, my libido came roaring back, all in all I was myself again, without the debilitating effects of my anxiety."
