I Have been taking Klonipin..generic is Clonazepam for 15 years i dont want to kill myself and i dont want to harm others and its not made me depressed infact it makes me feel normal as i use to its helped my anxiety and my depression and violet i cant see why it made your mother this way no explanation i know plenty of people who use this drug for anxiety ....not once have i heard it do anyone this way ...the true thing is yes they are very hard to get off of once you are on them never just quit taking them it will make you withdraw if you need to quit them then taper off of them...dont just quit far as violets mothers situation i dont understand this unless she had a side effect unknown to Doctors....but to answer your question you will feel the drug in 15 to 30 minutes and if its the first time you have takin it it will make you very sleepy...about a month it will become normal to you and your body's tolerance but if you have no anxiety i would not start taking it its in the same drug field as Xnax but it last longer....its also been called a date rape drug ....mixed with alchohol it intensifies causing a person to just pass out or not know what they are doing its a tranqualizer.

Sometimes people forget that not all drugs effect everyone exactly the same. What doesn't work or causes bad effects for one person, can work wonderfully for another person.

To hit a therapeutic effect in the body takes approximately two weeks, and then as Paul stated, about a month for the side effects to start to wear off.

clonaazepam is a weird drug , and for myself it was giving to me for seizure's my dr. advised myself... I use too take xanax up to 6 mg's per day , which my dr took myself off slowly ... tapered off. as like I typed Clonazepam is a very weird 1 mg x's 2 daily = 2 mg's a day , seem's too make my feel like IM HIGH ( only If I drink alchol with it ... And that is a no no , it state's on the bottle , do not drink while taking this medication ... and im no DR by far , But please do not mix xanax with clonazepam ... That's my opion , and we all have opion's ... And everyone's body is diffrent ... as typed , IM NO DR , just typing what it has almost done too myself = weird feeling , and panic .. anxiety got worse for me ...

I am taking Klonopin for 8 yrs, it hits peak plasma amts in blood in 1-2hrs and lasts for about 4 hrs. Note: there are very very different effects when taking the generic clonazepam- most all are like taking a sugar pill,or a very weak version......the BESTgeneric and the only one to buy is by Activis. Just go to a local pharm and ask them to order it for you. Good luck

Hi. I have been taking clonazepam for 7 yrs. it's VERY important to get the best generic version and that is Activis. Only get this brand it works better than the brand. The 1mg pill is yellow, says R34 on one side and scored on the other. It takes about 30-45 minutes to take effect. Peak blood levels are 1-2 hr point. Should last up to 4hrs. Good luck

I have been on klonopin for 2 years now and I'm currently trying to get off of it with the help of my Dr. I was given a different generic brand one time and it messed me up. I can ONLY take Activis! The other was like I never took it.
