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.

Advice & Tips: Clonazepam is an extremely beneficial treatment for aiding in sleep as well as anxiety. It not only helps you FALL asleep, but your QUALITY of sleep is so much better. The reason for this is that it is also a mild muscle relaxant so your sleep movement is decreased. The difference is really amazing. All I need is 1mg when I know I need a good night's sleep and I'm good. The only really terrible side effect of Clonazepam is that it INSTANTLY constipates you terribly. And as people with naturally sensitive digestive systems, we are particularly apt to fall prey to constipation. That's the only drawback.
Side effects: constipation, constipation
