Hi Chris,

I currently take it for severe anxiety attacks on an as needed basis and it works wonders. Hubby has MS and tried it years ago for pain but it knocked him out too bad so we had to move on to another med. I wish you luck with it.

I took it yrs ago for epilepsy and also for help with the ms, mostly to stop my legs from jumping around at night, it seemed to help me sleep better.

i take for anxiety just in the evenings so i can relax
It's 106 miles to Chicago, we've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses.
Hit it.

Be careful with the Clonazapam. It's highly addictive which my doctor never told me. Use ONLY as neccessary. It's a good medication but one that has to used right. So use for 2 weeks straight or use as needed but don't use it straight for more than 2 weeks. You need time on it and time off of it. Read some of the blogs on the web about people being addicted to Clonazapam/Klonopin. They are out there. It's a brutal addiction, trust me. Clonazapam is good for anxiety but will give you anxiety if on it too long. I know that medication makes people feel good and relaxed but it will turn on them if they don't use it with total caution.

Thanks for the warning. I use it when needed, have skipped days as well. Ran out once and was fine without it for 2 weeks. 30 day supply usually goes about 6 or 7 weeks.

Hi there, you are absolutely correct, it is addictive.....however I weight what is worst for me, going thur symptoms or having minimum systems, or the fact that the drus is additive, and of course I am going to lean to wards no being dizzy, anxious, muscle tension, etc....
 
Id also like to add that there are so many things in our life that are addicitive, cigarettes, alcohol, caffeine, anit depressant medication, etc...
 
But it is good for people to know this before plowing into this...
 
Once of the people advised that they did not now that it was addictive - I do beleive that it is important that you sit down and read allof the drug info from the web on all drugs before taking them so that you know what you are in for before starting...
 
Thanks and have a great day
Gary
