... worse? My mother has been taking clonazepam for a few weeks now and first they just made her experience a drunken like state she wobbled and talked slowly but the other day she took one of the pills and got into an irritated mood and proceeded to try to kill herself. I am very suspicious that it was the clonazepam that made her feel this way and I haven't seen much positive talk about it. I just hope someone can tell me if my suspicions are true.
Yes, clonazepam can aggravate depression. As far as Prozac, Prozac was the only drug that made me suicidal during my last bout with depression. I was never suicidal until I took Prozac. Some antidepressants can worsen depression and suicidal thoughts especially in teens and people in early adulthood. It sounds like her whole drug regimen needs to be changed. I would recommend that she see a psychologist for CBT or "talk" therapy. This part is almost as important as medications because it will help her gain new coping mechanisms to help her deal with her issues better.
