I've had bms for 11 years and take narcotics for the pain. A neurologist just prescribed clonazapam for it as a trial, but I can't tell a difference due to the narcotics. How much clonazapam does it take to help bms? I'm considering withdrawal of narcotics but that's a long process.
Ming22; For now you want to take it just as the doctor has prescribed it. Then when you talk to him or her ask about how often you can raise the dose and by how much I don't know what he gave you but you don't want to go up to fast this is a long acting benzodiazepine so it stays in your system longer which if you get the dose up to high it well be very hard coming off of it if it does not work well. I would think you would not want to raise it any more than every 3 to 5 days.but don't do it without the doctors ok. It may take it a little bit to start to kick in for you. Hope you're doing okay.Chuck1957
