So I've had displaced anxiety for 10 years...never took a thing...about 2 years ago it became unbearable. They gave me 1 MG of xanax and I took about .25 every 3-4 days...I ran out 6-8 months later and the doctor said xanax causes seizures even if you take a small dose...so they gave me lorazepam, and I tried it 2 times it was terrible. ..so they gave me clonazepam...1 MG. .that was 4 months ago and I still have 12 pills out of 30...but I still.have anxiety however I hear how horrible these meds are and addictive, and that makes my anxiety worse..so I take .25 of my 1 MG tablet if I absolutely need it, which means a lot of times I don't take.and fight the anxiety. This is exhausting me and I really need something to help when I feel anxious that isn't addictive so I'll a...

clonotril 0.5 mg side effects
What happened when im taking 30 pills of clonotril 0.5 mg in one time .. What the effects in my body in 3...4 hours. . ## @nirmala, Like most prescription medications, Clonotril (clonazepam) also comes with its long list of possible side effects. Far too many to list on here. However, I think the following link covers the most complete list of side effects for this medication that I've seen: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0045217/#DDIC602741.side_effects_section I just have to ask though, why do you feel the need to take 30x the dose your doctor prescribed you with? There are no benefits to overdosing to that degree and trying to do something like that could potentially result in a serious internal injury. If you truly need help, please don't hesitate to contact your doctor an...

is my son on drugs? Please help!!!!!
Found a small circular pill. Yellow with teva printed on one side and on the other 832 on the other side. Found in my sons room and I just wanna know why he has a full bottle of them hidden away. Is he on drugs? Should I be worried? ## This tablet contains 0.5mgs of Clonazepam, which is a benzodiazepine. These medications are commonly abused and carry the risk of being habit forming. They could also cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Is there anything else I can help with?

How many days before I feel the effects of Clonazepam working in my body begin to work
I have been prescribed Clonazepam for anxiety. I am to take it three times per day, one tablet at night about 30 minutes before bed time, one tablet first thing in the morning (I wake up about 6:00 a.m.) and one tablet around mid-day (1:00-1:30 p.m.). I have been taking it since Monday but do not feel any effects (though I have slept better the past two nights). How long does it usually take before clonazepam is in my system and will give me day time relief from my anxiety? ## Hello, Pthomas! How are you? I am very sorry about the problem that you're having. It should have had some immediate effect, this medication doesn't need to build up in your system to have its effect and can actually be taken as needed. If it's not helping you, you may need a higher dose or a different...

clonotril PLUS use and side effects
Dr prescribed one at night for peacful sleep and to avoid wrong thoughts. i am having high blood pressure and taking REPACE AF in the morning and concore 5 in the evening. Please advise. ## @Pritesh, From what I could gather, high blood pressure in and of itself is not specifically listed as a side effect of Clonotril (clonazepam). In fact, low blood pressure is what's actually recognized as being a rare side effect according to the following drug monograph by: stanford.edu/medications/clonazepam.html. However I do see a number of different symptoms listed on there that IMHO could provoke increases in one's blood pressure (such as agitation, nervousness, anxiety, as well as a few others). Is your Dr. also aware of this problem?

clonezapam .05
Was taking clonezapam .05. The drug was very helpful. Unfortunately I lost health insurance and ran out. Is there something similar for an over counter Thank you kevin ## Hello, Kevin! How are you? I'm sorry about your current dilemma. No, I'm afraid there isn't anything comparable available over the counter. Clonazepam is a benzodiazepine that carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Due to the possible risks, such medications are only available via prescription. It is, however, usually cheap as a generic, so if you can see your doctor, it shouldn't be out of reach to get a prescription for it filled. Is there anything else I can help with?
