 1  Insomnia Clonazepam has taken many people's lives. I know personally how many have committed suicide because of the undescribable torture that we go through when this poison turns paradoxical on us and we come off it. I am one of thousands of prescribed patients who has been going through hell on earth now for over 3 years Evil poison! Benzodiazepines are going to be the next opioid crisis. F 57 20 years

 1  Anxiety Awful dementia type feeling, zombie. Yes those who are itchy it causes that, maybe something in it drug eruption. If you do stop it, better off on valium. I feel this is another drug just handed out loosely. It's too strong for anxiety. We won't die people from anxiety ok.. just breath techniques... As I said valium better option just cross over. My penis shrunk too like other guy, messes with uranyl stuff to much. If you have epilepsy fine but anxiety c'mon... Try not just pop pills Avoid it don't start..... Simple valium better.

 1  Anxiety Lethargy, dizziness and lightheaded, muscle aches, muscle weakness. Only took .5mg for two weeks and stopped. Not sure if it was withdrawal or leftover still in my body, but felt terrible for a week after I stopped. This is a awful drug and wouldn't recommend to anyone. Prescribed to me to reduce anxiety in response to my nervous anxiety resulting from an event where I experienced heart palpitations. M 51 2 weeks

 5  Panic & anxiety None Clonazepam is a miracle drug. I have been dealing with panic & anxiety over 40 years and clonazepam helps me get through my day. I can take it and still go about my day if I need to stay awake however if I take it for sleep all I have to do is lay down and I'm totally relaxed F 54 100 days

 1  Severe Anxiety, Fear, Panic Attacks This drug is a living hell to get off and can be abused, and is extremely addictive to some. I wish prayer worked so I can be set free from this medication and other things as well, but at lass, I shall reap what I have sowed. it works, but it comes with a great price for someone like myself. Sigh!!!! HELP! I feel like I'm going into a semi psychosis when I'm off it for some weeks, let alone a month. Sigh!!! HELP!! John. M 34 10 years

 5  Panic attacks Clonazepam can make you a little bit sleepy but anything is better than suffering panic attacks hour after hour after hour. My doctor put me on 6 mg a day I weighed myself down to two and added an antidepressant together they work okay now I have a new Doctor who wants to completely take me awkwardness of him it's ridiculous. She says I can cause dementia well I would rather have dimension than experience panic attacks everyday with dementia you don't know what's going on with your body For me it did the job it made me functional in my life I wouldn't have been functional and able to work without it. I believe panic disorder is caused from a chemical imbalance I saw therapist they told me there was nothing wrong with me F 62 40 years

 4  Anxiety/Insomnia I was forced to become an "expert" on Clonazepam, as well as other drugs, due to my life long insomnia etc.. Clonazepam works best for my insomnia and has no side effects except possibly memory loss....but I can't remember...haha. I'm not sure it causes memory loss but I was feeling I had some memory loss but could be age? I was able to get off of this drug though I had to use Trazadone as without it I could not sleep. Trazadone has too many side effects for me so I'm going back to Clonazepam as it works much better and is not as dangerous as people say it is. I feel benzos are similar to alcohol in that some people have addictive personalities and some do not. I do not, so this drug is fine for me. But the best way to fight insomnia and possibly anxiety/depression is to get at least 30 minutes of sunshine and mild exercise per day and meditate or do yoga. It's only bad if you have an addictive personality. 60 5 years

 4  Seizures, severe anxiety Where would I start? I'm screwed. I've been on this medicine for 15+ plus years. My doctor died, coming off cold turkey wtf I've had no other choice, and no other drs in my county will prescribe a Benzo these days apparently. I didn't anticipate this, at all and I'm not okay, I know I'm not. Amid covid19 I'm immunocompromised, I'm sick af trying to DT myself off this rx- about to be homeless at months end, YAAA just in time for my 50th birthday. Oh yaaaa. I still feel like I'm dying and I don't have ANYONE to advise, guide, prescribe or counsel- I have nothing and no one. Been a month now. These fkn providers don't gaf about my well being. Telling me THEY CAN'T prescribe a benzo, and that's a lie. They CAN but they don't want to. Let me Tell ya- the concerns and actual outcome of being on Klonopin are far safer and better than the alternative of not having it at all. The medical community hates benzodiazepines. They dgaf about ppl who take them either. I've heard this class 4 controlled medicine is About to be banned. Surely NOT. If that happens omg umm get ready ppl Bc then it's going to get way serious. As if it could be any more serious than it is now. I'm trying not to but I am dying here ... and I cannot believe no one gaf. Dayyyum that's a slap in the face. WTAF F 49 15 years

 5  Anxiety/Insomnia Sleepiness but that is a desired effect for me. Started off on 0.5mg up to 3 times a day but the dose was very low for me as I have an extremely high tolerance for Benzos so my Psychiatrist upped the dose to 2mg up to 3 times a day or 6mg at night - my choice I know I am addicted and I know withdrawal will be a nightmare. I hate having a lot of people in my house including my family. My relationship with my adult daughter is ‘difficult’ and I often have to take a tablet if I am going to be around her for more than a few minutes. I know one day I will need to withdraw and it will hurt but for now I am happy on this dose. F 53 12 years

 1  prescribed to titrate off xanax Turns me into a zombie. I sleep up to 12 hours nightly. Have little or no energy to get things done in daytime, evening. Can't get organized to accomplish tasks. I was given this drug in a detox facility (a good one, client-centred) to get me off xanax which I'd been on since 1984 - I was 70 yrs. old and the College of Physicians and Surgeons where I live said all docs had to get their older patients off high doses of benzos. I was on 3.5 mg xanax daily. The idea is clonaz. has a much longer half-life and "they say" it is easier to get off of. Think heroin and methodone. We'll see. The only thing I like about it is it lasts longer than xanax (though it takes longer to kick in) so you're not going thru withdrawal several times daily! A considerable benefit, but the zombification is a total drag!!! PS - You shouldn't limit our gender choices to male and female! It's 2019, for crying out loud! 72 2 years

 5  Panic disorder/Agoraphobia Slight drowsiness first few days. Brilliant drug. I was in 5 mg Valium for 2 years, then Ativan 2.5mg daily for 6 months. Wanted something that would last longer and with a longer half life so if I want to taper off it will be easier. Within 4 days ai was back to my old self, no anxiety, panic and agoraphobia almost completely gone. I can het out and do things again. Lasts for ages and makes me feel normal. Great medication. I thought it best to swap from Ativan due to the long duration of the drug and the long half life. Couldn’t be happier with my choice. Btw I have tried over 10 different medications like ssri, snri, tricyclic, antipsychotics, tetracyclics and the Clonazepam kicks their butt to the kerb! Also my psychiatrist told me that the anxiolytic properties of Clonazepam do not wear off for people with severe anxiety disorders. Hope this helps others make an informed decision. M 38 30 days

 1  I was put on AD and depression got Depersonalization, derealization, severe depression, emptiness, anxiety, severe insomnia, muscle weakness, loss of energy, suicidal thoughts, anhedonia, loss of emotions, pain, vertigo When meds are used to treat side effects it looks like this: I was hospitalized for depression in 2007.(probably a side effect of contraceptive pills) They put me on antidepressants and gradually my depression got worse. Doctors told me that they had to find the right meds. Later I was put on clonazepam and I felt a bit better. Then it got worse again and my dose got higher. I completely believed I had treatment resistant depression. I was severely depressed for 10 years and didn't recognized it was side effects of my meds and I couldn't just quit taking clonazepam 'cause I couldn't bear anxiety. I've tried to taper two times unsuccessfully. Doctors didn't recognized side effects either and I've been treated for chronic depression. I'm tapering now, depression is relieved, anxiety and insomnia is horrific but generally I'm better. God bless all (mainly) long term users who are tapering. F 34 10 years
