I took them for 3 months before I told my doctor to either change me or take me off them. The only thing they really did when I took them (I was on 6 mg daily) was made me a little drowsy and forgetful something I could do without. Anyway not to ramble but the doc put me on Xanax and I must say they work A LOT better.

Klonopin (clonazepam): I was prescribed Klonopin to get me through anxiety exarcebated by starting on Lexapro. It is a benzo and therefore highly addictive so I was very careful about taking it as little as possible. I found it to be very effective and one tablet would actually keep me calm for around 36 hours ( it has a very long half life ). I did not feel side effects and didn't feel drunk or disoriented. Was effective for me but needs to be used with care.

Klonopin (clonazepam): This medication is really great for anxiety. I use it for severe anxiety related to interviews and relationships. It makes me feel like a person again, rather than someone who's under attack and needs to flee from an oncoming threat. I can actually function when I take it instead of hyperventilate and being suicidal. It's excellent.

I've taken Klonopin for 3 weeks at 1 mg a day and it's been great. That nebulous dread feeling is gone. And most of my days at work and play are enjoyable. I asked the doc if I should do 1.5 mg since I noticed a little vulnerability in the morning. Overall great. Much better for me than Buspar.

Klonopin (clonazepam): I first tried Buspar for my generalized anxiety disorder, and after several weeks, gave up on it. I decided to work with my psychiatrist instead of my GP. He agreed to let me try Klonopin. Wow. I only take 1 mg a day but I feel 90% recovered to my old self. I am more social again, working on my novel, doing well at work, handling stress well, having a lot more fun and joy. I've been on it for 3.5 weeks and hopefully can stay on it permanently. I know one needs to be cautious with it.

Klonopin (clonazepam): Best medication personally for anxiety and panic attacks. I have been taking 3-6mgs a day since I was 16 and compared to all the other benzodiazepines it has been the safest for long term use. I have tried Ativan, Xanax, and Valium also and did not have good experiences due to many side effects and they only worked for a couple weeks for me. Personally all medications have withdrawal so why not choose the best medication for yourself. SSRI's are just as hard to come off of as Benzos because of withdrawals, but most doctors don't tell you that.

I have been on Klonopin for about 6 months now. I am on a pretty low dosage. I am prescribed one 0.5 mg in the morning and one in the evening before bed. I feel this pill has been a life saver. I take it and it kicks in my system in about 20 minutes or so and I start to feel my panic and anxiety melt away. I feel like I can breathe easier and my heart isn't beating out of my chest. I am more efficient at work and that's very important because my job entails direct patient care/interaction...so I have to be "happy" and on top of things. I was prescribed this along with Lexapro, which I have been weened off of. So now I only take the Klonopin as needed. I try to only take them when I really need them or I am having a severe panic attack.

I take this medicine for anxiety along with escitalopram. I find it works really well, with no side effects, other than drowsiness, which has lessened now that I am used to it.

Klonopin (clonazepam): Really good for as-needed, I take it less than once a week because my antidepressant works well. For me, 0.5mg in the early afternoon really takes the edge off, doesn't knock me out or leave me stoned, and lets me sleep that night. Rated a 9/10 because I have sexual side-effects for a few days afterwards, really not a big deal because the benefits outweigh. Only take this medicine as-needed, tolerance builds fast so a script of 30 should theoretically last 6 months. Be safe, and above all, communicate with your doctor. Benzos can be very useful if used properly.

I have had Generalized Anxiety Disorder all my life, but could control it without medicines. I thought as I got older it would go away, but instead it had gotten worse to the point I finally got some help. Been on clonazepam for 2 years and feel so much better. It really works. I do worry about the horror stories of withdrawal, but wonder why people try to go off when it makes them better. I don't plan on stopping, I have finally found peace of mind with no side effects. My dose has remained the same.

Klonopin (clonazepam): Best benzodiazepine, if you can't wait a Xanax will work fast but Klonopin works longer than the Xanax.

Klonopin (clonazepam): I've been on 2mg / day Klonopin for about 6 months now and I do feel that its not working as well as it was the first few months. Now my anxiety stems from my thoughts on whether I'm building a tolerance which I think is NOT GOOD. Sad thing is this medicine has been the only one to actually let me go out into the world without the social anxiety I have without it.

Klonopin (clonazepam): Clonazepam is a wonderful medicine that stops all the bad feelings like, anxiety, feeling of impending doom or just nervous but you don't know why, its in the pit of your stomach, a nauseated twisted feeling in your gut that won't go away. Good news clonazepam is wonderful for these feelings, 2 mg 4 times a day and maybe a Halcion for sleep, you won't get so nervous and you will feel comfortable in your own skin.

Klonopin (clonazepam): This is a miracle for me. I have experienced abrupt withdrawal, but that was my fault and all that happened was my vision was extremely blurred and I was in bed a few days. Do not drink with this medication, take it AS needed instead of all the time, then you won't have withdrawals if you forget to take it. I don't understand why this old trusted medication isn't prescribed more often, it never produced "euphoria" or anything like that for me or anyone I know on it - but it's dangerous with alcohol I guess and so many people drink. I've been on 6mg a day - which I found way too much and went down to 2mg on my own.

Panic attacks, severe. Once on medication haven't had any. Anxiety is in check. Can function as normal or maybe better looking back over my whole life.

Review by WendyDee:

Klonopin (clonazepam): I began getting severe panic attacks in the middle of the night every night. Not just regular sleep pattern problems. But waking up wanting to be dead. This went on for a couple years until I could not bare it anymore. My doctor prescribed me Klonopin and it has done the trick. Previous to Klonopin I tried Ambien, Ambien XL, and Seroquel. I personally think it's a good idea to follow your doctors instructions and start with the more mild medicine. But to those who warn of the withdrawal symptoms of Klonopin. I have to say that opinion does not apply to all. Not wanting to die in the middle of the night every night for 2 years is such a benefit to me that I will risk the withdrawal symptoms that may come with stopping later down the road.

I take 1 tablet (1mg) 3 times a day. Helped me so much. It lasts a lot longer than Ativan, Xanax and doesn't make me like a zombie like Valium.

Klonopin (clonazepam): For the past few years I have been suffering from severe anxiety and depression, when my Doctor put me on 0.5 mg I didn't know if it would help or not, but in just a month or 2, my life has changed a lot for the better. I've been more self confident, and going out more. It really does help. As people have mentioned before take the lowest dosage that suits you. It really is a great treatment for anxiety. Though everyone is different, if you're running out of options you should definitely ask your Doctor about it!

Klonopin (clonazepam): Klonopin has been a wonderful medication for me. I'm a young male who gets social anxiety, and overall anxious feelings about situational matters that I just couldn't stop. Well, I take 0.5 mg of Klonopin once daily and haven't had a hint of social nor general anxiety since. I can now focus on school, interact with others with confidence, sleep well at night, and enjoy my life again.The medication gives you a steady sense of calm and tranquility WITHOUT making you feel sedated (at least it does for me), and its effects lasts between 6-8 hours! Xanax worked as well, but it made me too sedated to adequately perform my daily schedules, plus didn't last as long.

Klonopin (clonazepam): I've had anxiety for over 30 years, I'm in my 50's. I've been on Effexor and a few other antidepressants, which helped some, but sexual side effects were weird. I reluctantly started Klonopin about 6 months ago but was afraid of the addictive properties of it. So I started on a real low dose 0.125 mg, once a day. And some days I take the another 0.125 mg. totaling 0.25mg per day. I'll admit it helps a lot. It makes me feel like myself again. It doesn't stop the scary thoughts and stupid fears that I have, but I don't react as poorly to them. I'm hoping I don't have to increase my dosage, but figure I have a lot of room to go up if I do. Still wish I didn't have to take them but this winter was rough and I needed some help until the sun shines again.
