i was prescribed .5mg of clonazepam because i have severe panic, anxiety and PTSD. I have never taken them before. A few weeks ago i took .5 of a xanax, and it made me feel better. Im just wondering if anyone has had any experience never taking any type of drugs before im just worried about feeling weird or blacking out. I read they do last a long time and if i dont like the way they make me feel i will have to wait until the feeling wears off. im just scared i really do need to take something for my anxiety but im really anxious to take them. Hope this makes sense im just trying to express my concern.
0.5mg is a very small dose. Many people take it with no problems at all. Drowsiness is common. It should just make you feel calm and relaxed and maybe a bit sleepy (and the sleepiness will go away when your body becomes used to the medication). It is best to take it on a day when you are free from responsibilities to see how you react. You dont want to drive or be doing anything that requires concentration while taking the medication because they may make you feel a little woozy and sleepy at first. It is very unlikely that this dose would be enough to make you black out or anything dramatic. It will be pretty close to what Xanax does for you, just lasts a bit longer.
Mandynine; I agree with everything Dzooz? said but when you compare the benzodiazepine's most when you first start but we are all different has a bit more sedative effect to it but it does work as good for most people and like said what is nice is once the system adjust to the difference in it you don't need it as often as Alprazolam.
