Reviews for Clonazepam
Klonopin (clonazepam) for Panic Disorder: "Caution: this medication is highly effective for almost every anxiety disorder that exists, somewhat TOO helpful which is how it's easy to abuse it; but doing so will be life devastating. Using this drug responsibly at a reasonable dosage is highly effective managing anxiety disorders and I testify that it compliments antidepressants very well. Daily users need to be proven the benefits outweigh the risks. Taken daily for 5 years, still as effective and no need to 'up my dosage'."

For Anxiety: "Clonazepam is very effective for anxiety.I had been on Xanax for years,then became ineffective.Some in Medical community tried to get me on Visterol,Paxil,Remeron,all useless garbage if you have extreme panic.If used safely Clonazepam quells the bad symptoms."

Klonopin (clonazepam) for Anxiety: "I have severe panic and anxiety attacks and have for over 20 years. When I tried to go off this medication, lowering my dosage slowly because of a pregnancy, I ended up with the bad anxiety again. Needless to say I ended up going back on and my son was born perfectly ( at the time 20 years ago they were not sure of long term effects) if anything he is smarter than my other 2 children. I also take an anti depresent that works very well with it. I definitely recommend this medication. I am on a higher dose probably more than most I take 2mg in the morning and 2mg at night. Probably because my depression is worse than it was but the anxiety is finally under control"

For Panic Disorder: "Started having my first panic attacks when I was 40. They were a little scary, but not bad. At the age of 45, I had my first REAL one! I couldn't breath. I truly thought I was going to die. My husband took me to the hospital where instead of treating me for panic- they threw me in the Psychiatric hospital for two weeks where I could not speak to or see my family! Upon release I was diagnosed with a ... A...panic attack. I was given Klonapin to use as needed. Don't need to use it often.... But when I do, the 2 mg wafers save my life!"

For Anxiety: "This is a wonderful drug for anxiety. I received immediate help...20 years ago! Since my initial dosage of 0.5 mg/day increased to 4 mg/day. This drug almost ruined my life and marriage. I became completely oblivious to my surroundings and to the people close to me. I did not know what was happening. Fortunately my wife pointed out to me how damaging Clonazepam had become. Beware: The withdrawal side effects are far worse than the original problems I started taking the drug for. It's ironic that the withdrawal side effects mimic what I was being treated for: anxiety, head/neck brain "zaps", inability to sleep, inability to care, complete detachment from my surroundings, etc. This drug should not be used long term. Withdrawal: Very slow."

For Anxiety: "Great medication for anxiety! I've been on clonazepam for about 3 weeks now and my anxiety has subsided immensely. I take .5mg twice a day along with 3mg of Lunesta at night and never have I felt better in my entire life! I can finally live and sleep and be happy. Changed my life for the better. :)"

Klonopin (clonazepam) for Anxiety: "I have had anxiety for as long as I can remember, but just had a horrible Doctor. My anxiety turned me to abusing drugs, alcohol, opiates, and even Benzos. I finally got clean and still had anxiety, but thought I would never get this script with my history. I finally found a Dr. who took a chance and trusted me. Clonazopam on a regular dose has helped me in so many ways. I'm prescribes 4 1 mg tabs a day, even though I don't usually take that much, along with wellbutrin. I'm no longer experiencing anxiety or panic attacks and best of all don't feel the need to get high in order to get rid of it. clonazepam has saved my life along with suboxone. Any Dr who thinks these 2 drugs shouldn't be mixed is stopping the best opiate recovery."

Klonopin (clonazepam) for Anxiety: "I am on Zoloft 200mg. a day. Have been taking Xanax 1mg. 3 or 4 x day. My Dr. wants to switch me to Klonopin .5 2x day instead, but it does not seem to be helping. I don't seem to feel any relief from the Klonopin."

Klonopin (clonazepam) for Anxiety: "Started with an SSRI for anxiety and it just didn't work. Finally got prescribed this benzo Klonopin and it's perfect! I take 0.5mg, but when I take it, my anxiety goes away. I feel like I can do anything, with a clear mind of course. I don't have to hide away anymore. I thought this drug might make me "stoned" or something, but really all I experience is, after about 15 min, a general clear-minded sense of well-being and it works for a while. Good stuff."

Klonopin (clonazepam) for Anxiety: "I was on this medication for approximately 5 years. The last couple of years, I had increasing anxiety and depression. I never increased my initial dose of 2 mg. at night to help with sleep. My PDoc continued to insist that it was not the Klonopin that was causing my anxiety and depression. Who knows? I weaned myself off of the medication SLOWWLY over 4 months. It really took me that amount of time, even that may have been too fast for me. When it works, it's a helpful me. Problem is that many people tend to build a tolerance to the med and will likely need to increase the dose to get the same effect, hence feelings of withdrawal that can come on automatically. I know everyone has his/her own opinion about this drug."

Klonopin (clonazepam) for Anxiety: "I have been on kolonopin for almost a year now & it has been an absolute life saver! I had horrible panic attacks, scared to drive, couldn't even go shopping without getting dizzy and anxious. Anxiety has taken over my life, the panic attacks are so scary I thought I was going to die. I'm very greatful to have this medicine. I've heard of problems with dependency but I don't know what I'd do without it, I'm also on zoloft & I feel like I have my life back!"

For Anxiety: "Iv'e been on clonazopam for several years now and let me tell ya, i dont leave home without it. It's almost more important to know that i have some readily available or have some at all, than it is to take it. I guess that's the fear of the fear syndrome...hehehe. iv'e had anxiety/panic disorder ever sinse I ret from the Army and quit drinking alcohol. I reckon all my held down by addiction emotions decided to come to the surface. It was terrible with all the panic attacks and ive been on every Anti depressant thats ever been manufactured, some worked , some didnt. But then there was clonazopam, my knightess in shining armor hehehe. Yes, i'm on 2.5mg twice dailyand a lttle more if needed, but i rarely have panic attacks anymore. Love it."

For Anxiety: "I was prescribed Paxil when I was 25 for panic attacks and took it for a few years. It helped but gave me sexual side effects. It was making me have a hard time to ejaculate. I changed to citalopram 20mg when I was 28. It has been workin well until now, Im 35. Two ago I stopped taking it an I was doing fine. A month ago I had a few drinks and decided to do a little cocaine. Bad move. My anxiety exploded. Started taking 30mg of citalopram daily since then. It still doesnt work after a month so my doctor prescribed me .5 Clonazepam when needed. When I feel really anxious, I take .25 and it wards off any anxiety. I feel back to normal. I hope the citalopram will start its effect soon and I dont have to take Clonazepam anyone but it helps."

For Panic Disorder: "Started this about six months ago and was taking it as needed then started having panic attacks at night. I take 1 0.5 tablet before bed and I don't have racing thoughts or any panic attacks at all and if I do it knocks them out within 10 minutes. They were debilitating my life and this is the only med that saved me from daily panic attacks. I take this and Prozac and feel a thousand times better and am able to function"

For Insomnia: "Hi I have had insomnia since march last year and it turns into nervous or anxiety and then became panic attacks. Then I asked my wife to go with me in a doctor and it was psychiatrist because insomnia was in our mind and it does not mean that your crazy when you go to that doctor. My doctor gave me clonazepam or rivotril here in the phillipines.. First I take 2mg, 1mg and 0.5mg as of now. I take it in the morning when I needed it for anxiety panic attacks and add another .5mg if my attacks was strong. I take .5mg everynight for sleep since march last year. I don't know what to do if there is no rivotril or clanazepam in my life. So far the best medicine for me!!! Tnx to my Doctor"

For Anxiety: "my doctor originally only prescribed lexapro 10mg/day which never really helped. After my first checkup I told him this and then gave me clonazepam .5mg 2x/day as needed added to my lexapro. It has helped tremendously and I can finally feel like myself again. I generally still have to take at least one a day but at even such a low dosage it helps! And best part about it is is that I don't feel doped up and/or fatigued like I was afraid of."

For Anxiety: "Day 1 on clonazepam.... this drug is awesome! I know there are tons of side effects but not being able to sleep good for a year is worth the possible risk. I was on it before and nothing happened so I should be good. I also only need .25mg of it because my body absorbs it really good. And the wellbutrin I'm on seems to help kick the major fatigue that I remember from last time.First night and i got 7 hrs of straight sleep for the first time in years. I really hope it continues to help me. I know it can be addictive so I'm going to try only taking it until the wellbutrin I just started is fully in my system. We will see how this goes, but so far so good."

Klonopin (clonazepam) for Anxiety: "Have been taking 2 to 2.5 mg per day for many years. The only med that has alleviated my anxiety. Am 67 and have had the problem since childhood. Don't know why but it's too late to unravel. Suspect I'm wired that way or its hereditary. Was very successful but life was a constant struggle until I got help at age 48. Would not want to be without it despite the docs concerns about addiction. The horror stories about withdrawal are over blow. I wean off once in 6 weeks. No re-occuring issues. Therapy never had any lasting effect. Too late to consider stopping now and I don't know why I should. The trend against these meds is unfortunate. "

Klonopin (clonazepam) for Anxiety: "I'm writing this in case anyone else is in my position of being afraid of takings this out of the fear of it making you high, since so many people have voiced strong opposing opinions about Klonopin. I was in the same exact position of being afraid of taking it, even though those around me (which is part of something I have to learn..accepting that people know what they're talking about when it comes to anxiety) were telling me that nothing would happen. It took me a spur of the moment gather of courage to take Klonopin..and now I can say that *when needed*, I love Klonopin. It melts away anxiety and leaves a dent in depersonalization (if you struggle) and allows you to function and level off for a few days afterwards."
