clonazepam tapering
Besides painful scary withdrawal say goodbye to your hair when trying to taper clonazepam or any other benzodiazapine. After taking this a few years it actually added anxiety and problems. People think it works well for them, but just you wait, it turns on you when you least expect it and it is the most painful and fearful thing to go through. Doctors do not knwo how to handle the taper and end up adding more drugs that actually make things worse. Suddenly you find yourself living to avoid all the pain and the physical problems like nerve pain while trying to taper. ## Hello Kate! How are you doing? I'm very sorry about what you're going through. It is normal for your body to get used to any medication that you've been taking for a long period of time and for it to stop work...

Clonotril withdrawl plan from 0.25 mg daily
I was having anxiety problem (when TSH detected 44 in March this year, now ok with eltroxin) due to which I developed insomnia. I tried restil, valliuim etc which when taken gave good results (good sleep) but on leaving the pill sleepless ness was limping back. In July this year my Doctor prescribed me Chonotril 0.5 mg, half tab daily at night. I am ok with this at least most of the weak . I tried to go without the pill sometimes without success. Please suggest me the time bound withdrawl plan. Anxiety part is now ok. ## Clonotril contains the active ingredient Clonazepam, so it's also a Benzodiazepine just like the Valium you tried. That said, however, if you've only been taking half of a 0.5mg tablet at night, then stopping it shouldn't be a major issue, though you may hav...

clonazepam/ip 465
My best friend desided he wanted to be johnybad ass and took 3 ip465 and 2 clonazepam. What are the side effects of those two combine and will he be ok? ## Hello! How is your friend doing? Did he suffer any adverse effects? The tablet with the IP 465 marking is actually of more concern than the 2 Clonazepam, because it contains 600mgs of Ibuprofen and taking that much, at once, creates the risk of liver damage or liver failure, as well as stomach ulceration, since it is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory. Two of the Clonazepam would most likely just result in him taking a nap, unless he's sensitive to them, in which case it could cause overdose that may result in dangerously lowered heart rate and blood pressure. It also carries the risk of being habit forming. Has he sought medical a...

Taken clonazepam for 12 years 2mg 3 times a day for anxiety?Are they addictive? What happens when I do stop them? I was told that I can just stop at anytime. ## Hello, BL! How are you? Yes, Clonazepam are a benzodiazepine, so they can be habit forming and, if you've been taking them 3 times a day for years, then no, you can't just stop cold turkey. That creates the risk of seizures due to withdrawal, as well as other withdrawal symptoms, such as headache, diarrhea, irritability, nausea, anxiety and insomnia. To stop taking them, it would be safest to do a very slow taper, such as gradually lowering your dosage, while skipping doses, but only your doctor can help you decide the safest method for you. Are there any other questions or concerns?

Zapiz With Alcohol

Will 1.0mg or 1.5mg of clonazepam cause INR levels to decrease or increase?
I'm taking Warfarin to treat lung blood clots and address my antiphospholipid syndrome. I also get occasional panic attacks, so I was wondering what affect on INR taking 1.0mg or 1.5mg of Clonazepam about a couple times a month would have. Does anybody know? ## Hello, DETBrannigan! How are you? Yes, there could be problems. Clonazepam has been known to cause Thrombocytopenia, though it isn't common, there is a risk of it. That doesn't mean that you can't take it, but that your doctor may need to monitor you more closely for awhile and adjust your Warfarin accordingly. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability.. Is there anything else I can help with?
