very unsure if i should try this med. doctor said i low could start on a low dose or higher dose ive had insomina for years an have taken ambien for about 5 years and it has stopped work so now docotr gave me clonazepam and what side affects has anyone had an do you taken any other meds with this med.
It sounds like a big part of your sleep problem is anxiety. Take the clonazepam, daily. It will decrease your anxiety and you might be able to sleep. Start out on the lower dose. Your doctor told you to take it, do you think he'd give you something that would harm you? Chances are good all you'll notice is less anxiety and maybe an ability to sleep.
If your trust in your Dr is such that an opinion online can be taken as an overriding factor, I would recommend either expressing what is posted here to that Dr (because that is who knows the unique details leading up to this prescription), or, change Drs. The concerns are valid, but there is no substitute for the care of the physician who has access to, and knowledge of the big picture. Tell this Dr your concerns so you can get the single most accurate explanation, or, make a change.
