I was prescribed Ativan and my dr recently switched me too clonazepam and said not to mix the two. I took my last Ativan around 3:30 pm and I was just curious how long I should wait before I can take the clonazepam?? It's prescribed for anxiety and helps me sleep at night but I was told the two don't mix. I don't want them to counteract on each other.
Oh, they won't counteract each other, they'll act together to cause more side effects like drowsiness and poss difficulty with breathing. . I'd say 8 hrs after you took the ativan would be ok.
