Advice & Tips: The perfect medication I have tried so far for Insomnia and Panic Attacks with little or no sode affects and I havebeen on it for a while now. I never became addicted to it like so many doctors fear. I recommend this drug highly as I have tried Xanax which made me feel like a Zombie and Valium which did the same to me as Xanax. If you want to calm down yet still function well use Clonazepam.

    Major (for Anxious mood)
  • Side effects

  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 1 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: It was a miracle drug for panic attacks, but withdrawal sets in after a time and the dose has to increase to continue to be effective. The risk was too high for permanent addiction so my doctor switched me to Alprazolam, which should be easier to get off of at some point in the future.

Advice & Tips: Increased dosage per MD I found out it has nothing to do with the crying spells. I changed from Gabapentin to Wellbutrin and the crying is nearly gone, also pain is better, sometimes gone.

Advice & Tips: I was switched from lorazepam to klonopin. I want to get off of it because I think it makes me worse. I took lorazepam for eight years, and xanax for three before that. It is extremely hard to get off the drugs without making things worse, but I am concerned that it makes me cry all the time. It helped with insomnia at first, but not any more. If I had it to do over again, I wouldn't be on any of these.
