Hi. It's me Boomer2uall. I originally joined this forum about a month ago regarding the drug Clonazepam and if anyone who takes this medication actaully feels anything. I take 3mg a day and I wasn't sure if I was really feeling anything or not. So, I did the really stupid thing and I stopped taking it about a week ago. If anyone is on this medication, please DO NOT DO WANT I DID. After 1 day of not taking the med, I felt fine. After the second day I still felt fine but found myself not being able to sleep. By the 3rd day, I was sweating non-stop even though my air-conditioner was on, had no appetite, and really could not sleep. By the forth day, I was crying. All I wanted to do was sleep but could not. By the 5th day, I was back taking my 3 mg dose a day again becuase I just could not stand it anymore.
When I took my first dose 1mg, I REALLY felt this medication "kick in" within about 2 hours.
I guess what I am trying to say is that Clonazepam does work even if you don't think it is. I have also learned not to judge a pill by it's size either.
Again, please do not do what I did. If you want to get off this med, tapper off very slowly.
Currently taking Paxil 40mg, Clonazapm 3mg, Seroquel 150mg, and Remeron RD 45mg daily.
