  • Effectiveness
    None (for tremor in limbs)
  • Effectiveness
    Can't tell (for anxious mood)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Sometimes
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 2 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: After taking 1 mg of Clonazapam twice/day for over 10 yrs., my new PCP informed me that it could cause cognitive disfunction. Since that is the last thing I want, I weaned myself totally off of it about 6 wks. ago; however, I was having sleeping problems and some nights (mornings), I wouldn't fall asleep until 4-5:00am. Because of this, I am now taking .25 mg before bedtime and plan to discontinue that in the future, and maybe just take it if absolutely necessary.

Advice & Tips: Be careful not to build up a tolerance -- it really is something, in my opinion, to be used "as needed" rather than a daily supplement for SSRIs or used recreationally. I have had friends who developed a dependency, and it's hard to watch.
