KLONOPIN: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Panic Disorder “To best help combat my Anxiety, my psychiatrist & I had both been in agreement that prescription benzodiazepines were my best option currently, so I primarily get prescribed (Klonopin 2mg Tabs, Qty- 90, three times daily or as needed) once a month for the last 7+ years, while taking a ‘break or switch to a similar medication’ such as Xanax or Ativan.”

For Panic Disorder “I take 0.5mg of Klonopin as needed for anxiety. I try not to take it all the time because I know it can be addictive. For me it does lessen my anxiety but it’s very minimal. Although, it has worked better for me than Atvian, Hydroxyzine, Zoloft, etc. I think if it’s paired with something else then I would find it more beneficial.”

For Seizure Prevention “This medication is helping me through several PTSD moment, it also helps me at night time to sleep, it keeps me calm, and keeps me from having seizures. It’s a great. Some people put down benzos just for the fact that they’re benzos – they don’t realize the amount of how much it helps some people”

For Panic Disorder “I started taking 0.5 mgs ending up at 3 mgs daily for panic disorder. I used klonopin & SSRI over the years. They worked for a time but then stopped, only klonopin helped panic. Eventually I felt rebound symptoms of panic and paranoia the longer I was on it, along with memory problems. Still recovering my life after a month off of it and memories come back daily. Followed all directions; never abused it. Thought klonopin was the best for 18 yrs. Now have to start my life again. Daily use is a risk over a long period of time. If a doctor tries this be your best advocate and question!”

For Panic Disorder “It works on panic at fairly low doses. I’ve tried most of the benzodiazepines and found clonazepam works best for me. Xanax and Ativan work faster, Valium and Tranxene work longer, but in terms of warding off panic with minimal problems, while maintaining a minimal dose Klonopin has been my favorite.”

For Panic Disorder “This medication has completely destroyed my life. If you have anxiety find another way to deal with it. It’s not worth it trust me.”
