Hello Everyone.
 
I'm new to the forums but have been on chat for a couple of mouths now.  I thought i would join the forums.
 
 
I am about 7 weeks pregnanet and i'm taking Clonasapam for my anxiety.  I have gone to My OB and she said its ok to take it , that many of her patience have taken it with pregnancy and everything was ok.  My Question is....  HAS anyone taken this med or know someone who is on it when they were pregnant..   Was everything ok?
 
Please advise.

This is what I found on webmd.com about Clonazepam/Klonopin

"This medication is not recommended for use during pregnancy due to the potential for harm to an unborn baby. If you become pregnant or think you may be pregnant, inform your doctor immediately. Consult your doctor for more details."


So talk to your doc about other benzos as well as the risks involved hon!!!

clonazepam has been in use for 40 years all over the world and if not safe for pregnancy this would be obvious by now

drug cautions are often written by lawyers

sometimes being pregnant greatly reduces anxiety so fewer or no meds are needed

I was wondering the same thing about Clonazapam. Not pregnant yet, but attempting, and I really don't want to stop this medication. Would just have to replace it with something else to get me to sleep at night. I read the same thing, that it is known to be harmful.
But, as with most other medications, you have to weigh risk vs. benefit in the long term.
