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.
Cost: < $25 monthly

Advice & Tips: I began taking this for panic attacks. Noticed in the beginning of treatment I took it at bedtime and I slept better. Now has no effect on sleep except that I probably am now dependent and would have a hard time sleeping without it. But no more panic attacks since I began taking this over a year ago so dependency is an acceptable trade-off. Overall has improved my life because panic attacks take me out of my life.

Side effects: drug dependence

Dosage: 1.5 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I began taking clonazepam for panic and anxiety and insomnia. I took it before bed and it helped me sleep and controlled my anxiety during the day. I was overjoyed. After a month or so it was nearly useless as a sleep aid BUT I have never had another panic attack since I began taking this drug. If you suffer from panic attacks you already know it is the worst feeling ever. As a generic it is very cheap.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: drug dependence
