I was just started on 1 mg of Klonopin because I was having adverse side effects of Ativan. Ativan did the exact opposite of calming me down. It gave me more anxiety, restlessness, depression, etc. The paradoxical effect is what they call it. I'm scared Klonopin will do the same if not worse since either is also a benzo. My psychiatrist says it'll be fine but my anxiety is telling me otherwise. I'm literally so terrified to take new medications because I was prescribed Celexa awhile ago and it messed with my heart. I also take Paxil now and I heard Klonopin interacts with that. I realy want to try it and see if it works but I'm a big hypochondriac. I just don't know what to do. Please help if you have any advice or personal experiences with Klonopin. Thank you in advance.
