Hello Ashes_2485. If you mean klonopin, it is a benzodiazepine that is used for anxiety. It is not a narcotic or classed as one. I am giving you a link to read about it below in blue. Just click on it. Best wishes...

Hello Ashes 2485.
Klonopin is not a narcotic, it is a benzodiazapene, used for many things such as panic disorder, anxiety disorder, it is also sedative so people should avoid alcohol when taking this med..hope this helped

As the lovely ladies say:

Klonopin is used in the treatment of anxiety; bipolar disorder; panic disorder; seizure prevention; periodic limb movement disorder and belongs to the drug classes benzodiazepine anticonvulsants, benzodiazepines.

As Angel says avoid alcohol with any benzodiazepine , this may increase the risk of possible side effcts:

Take care,

What you may be thinking is that Klonopin, or Clonazapam is a CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE. Narcotics are also controlled substances, but they are in different categories.
