I was taking klonopin for over 14yrs, in 2008 I started having heart palpatations went to the dr. found out heart trouble was benign I weened off of the benzos not knowing it was a problem went on prozac, and also found out I had sleep apnea, I thought that was the answer to the heart palpatations because I had them no more. I recently moved, my panic attacks came back, I went to the Dr. he put me back on a small amount of klonopin before bed time the heart palpatations came back they only lasted throughout the day though. I went back to the Dr. he changed my script to Temazepam, well the heart palpatations came back the very next day. Has anyone heard of anything like this? What can I take now???
Hello zanetrusty. Years ago I was taking Diazepam and had blood pressure issues. The dose was adjusted and I had no more problems. I realize that you are not experiencing the same side effect. I would suggest Paxil/Paroxatine. I use it. Its not close to performing as that a benzodiazepine will, but out of preference, although I have the option to having benzodiazepines perscribed, choose not to. Regards pledge
