Hi,klonpin is clasified as benzo. It was fist used as anticonvulsant med.then later use for anxiety dissorders. This is not a narcotic.
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.
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:
Hello Ashes 2485.
