Serious Side Effects

      Higher risk if:
    • Taking more than the prescribed dose
    • Taking longer than 4 weeks
    • History of drug abuse

    If you use Klonopin (Clonazepam) for 4 weeks or more, it's likely that your body will develop tolerance to it, which means that more and more of the medication is needed to achieve the same effect. You're also likely to become physically dependent on the medication, which means that you'll feel withdrawal symptoms if you stop taking it all at once. You can avoid withdrawal by weaning off of the medication very slowly with the help of a doctor. Take only the prescribed dose to minimize risks of abuse and overdose. Klonopin (Clonazepam) should not be used by people with a history of drug abuse if an alternative medication is available.

    • Long-term use

    Stopping Klonopin (Clonazepam) suddenly may cause withdrawal symptoms such as nausea, anxiety, agitation, flu-like symptoms, trouble sleeping, and muscle pain or burning. Withdrawal symptoms can last 6 weeks or longer. Work with your doctor to gradually reduce your dose when stopping or switching to a different medication.

  • Pregnancy

    Klonopin (Clonazepam) can harm a developing fetus. The baby can become dependent on the medicine and go through withdrawal after birth. Don't use Klonopin (Clonazepam) while pregnant.

  • Driving impairment
      Higher risk if:
    • Alcohol
    • Taking other medicines that make you less alert

    Klonopin (Clonazepam) impairs your ability to focus, think, and react. These effects can extend to the morning after taking Klonopin (Clonazepam). Be careful. Avoid activities that require you to be alert, such as driving a car or operating machinery, until you know how this medication affects you.

  • Memory problems

    Your brain may have difficulty making new memories while you're taking Klonopin (Clonazepam).

  • Worth it
  • Worked well
  • Some hassle
Took for more than ten years. Worked well. My only complaint is that at 3 mg. dosage., I was unaware that in my state (i.e., Minnesota) this dosage level is considered "intoxicated" by state highway laws for operating a motor vehicle. Took me more than three years to discover this fact.
