- anxiety, clonazepam
I just started taking Clonazepam a few days ago, and I undertand that it takes time to get into your system. Yesterday I passed out at 6:45pm and didn't wake up until 7:45am today, and that was only because my alarm went off for work. I probably could have slept longer. I take .25mg twice a day. Right now, I just want to go to sleep.
Any help on how long this drowsy feeling will last?
You will build a tolerance over the next couple of weeks then the sleepiness should get better. Clonazepam is going to always make you sleepy to a degree.
The kind of sedation you are going through is Not normal. I would notify your Dr. Perhaps this is not the medication for you. It does not sound like you can take it during the day.
I am on this medication 1 mg 3 x daily and have been for yrs for panic/agoraphobla etc... I never really felt tired of of them more so relaxed, but everyone's system is differant as we well no... I would have your doctor do some labs on u first off to see if something else is going on to make u so tired... and life Laurie said after a while u build a tolerance and should feel better, but in my opinion even when I first started, I was on xanax and still didn't sleep like that..I like klonopin better for xanax has a short life an wears off fast n u wind up getting rebound anxiety till it is ready for your next dose, that's why I didn't like it as well is it made me black out on a lot of things... I would forget what I was doing n so fourth... I say give it another week or so n if u r having these issues I would talk to the doc about it as well as asking to run some labs on u to see if you r anemic or lacking vitamins etc... best of health to u...
