I am having thoughts of rather or not to take this meedicine because my blood pressure is a little high 145/90 from anxiety although taking .5 klonopin twice a day. I have heard it will make you have seizures even though does not run in family and then the blood pressure. I dont want to take something that will raise it or give me more anxiety please help Thank you and god bless. I forgot to mention I was prescribed 75 mg a day aat bedtime. My pharacist says it isa pretty good medicine but I get very anxious after reading side effects. thank you
My friend, I also take 5 klonopin twice a day. I done this for about four years. One thing I was told and it is true, is that taking Wellbutrin for depression witch lifts your moods to get you moving from the depression, and klonopin is a drug that slows you down.takes the anxiety away.
When you think about it, they work against each other. One is kind of like speed to get you up and going and klonopin is a downer to bring you down from being crank up
There for you need to talk to your Dr, about these two along with there side effects can hurt you not help.
Just some food for thought.
My shrink told me that Wellbutrin is the WORST MED for people with panic attacks/anxiety!! Just a thought here, but perhaps you should ask doc about Pamelor or Tofranil? But pamelor and tofranil can raise blood pressure as well. Any anti-depressant with a norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor can cause sugar and carb cravings AND raise your BP. 'Tis quite a quandry you are in!
What is worse, the cure or the disease? Please post again, and let us know how you are doing, we care! Good luck, sweetlemon
