6 Comments & Reviews: Klonopin

  1. Ihave a comorbid condition ..add and general angziety I DO WELL TAKING DEXEDRINE AND KLONOPIN I have a big problem in that if i don’t take a daily dose of klonopin I expierience extreem …WHITE NOISE to the point that I can’t concentrate… this dose not get any better with time..I have gone more than a year without Klonopin and the white noise persists just as it did before I ever took this medicine there is no dialog about the benefits this drug has to offer there just seems to be a fear on everyones part surounding any dialog that is pro benzo I find the situation intolarable

  2. I used to be tired all day. My pdoc was concerned about the constant fatigue. She sent me for a sleep study. I was diagnosed with sleep apnea, and now use a cpap every nite. I snored as a kid. The sleep study also revealed I have have restless leg syndrome and periodic limb movement disorder. It’s very common to have these disorders with add. I’m taking Strattera for add and Klonopin for the other. Life is improving…finally. I’m 52. It’s about time!

  3. I have had sleep problems of a similar nature for the last four years. Finally about a year ago I decided to get my anxiety treated. The doctor prescribed Klonopin and it worked really well for my sleep issues. I’d fall asleep quickly and stay asleep long enough to not feel groggy all day. Although it did make me feel groggy initially in the mornings.

    I did eventually stop taking it though for other reasons and was recently diagnosed with ADHD. Now the racing thoughts at night make more sense. I was just prescribed Strattera and I think it is possibly affecting my sleep again. I wake up in the middle of the night and can’t get back to sleep. I think I might try changing the time of day that I take Strattera to see if that helps at all.

  4. I’ve been diagnosed with ADHD along with anxiety and depression. I take 300 mg Effexor-XR, Lamictal (which is great and for me was worth the risk of the rash I didn’t get), Klonopin for anxiety, and Adderall for my ADHD. Right now am doing okay but I have that seasonal component and that isn’t helping right now.

  5. I’m writing because I have anxiety disorder and social phobia (and some depression thrown in). Initially, cognitive-behavioral therapy was very effective and I recommend it. After a while, medication was the thing that made a big difference more than therapy because I already knew the CBT methods. Klonopin for anti-anxiety has helped me a lot. I believe prozac has helped me a lot also with the social phobia.

  6. I’m 31, take Adderall 20mg 3x a day-and Klonopin 1mg 3x day. The Klonopin is dual functioning, i have something called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy-a neurodegenerative disorder which can cause significant pain throughout the body. With the RSD I have non-epileptic ‘seizures’ or full body tremors; that sort of resemble Parkinsonian tremors ‘turned up’. The Klonopin quells the tremors by relaxing the muscles around the nerves. Anxiety, stress, and pain induce the non-epileptic seizures…but, i find that with the Adderall, i don’t have the ups and downs in moods that I had before when i was solely taking Adderall. I think that just because you take a ‘stimulant’ medication and also experience anxiety, that your doctor shouldn’t just think that the stimulant is causing the anxiety, or exacerbating it. Most ADHD meds won’t control all symptoms that go along with ADHD; anxiety is an incredibly common co-existing symptom. Adderall makes me focus-relax, etc. but it doesn’t do EVERYTHING… I was anxious to tell my doc about the continuing anxiety, fearing he’d pull me off the Adderall. Thankfully, he didn’t; he didn’t even change my dose! He suggested Ambien to help me as well. It’s best to go always go to a psych with experience with ADHD meds, and who can understand that ADHD is different for everyone. Good luck! And, let me know if anyone has a similar experience… I’ve always felt a bit alone with my meds, symptoms of anxiety, etc… Thanks!
