Does Clonazepam cause CONSTIPATED??HELP..

I Have been taking Clonazepam now for a month.I only take 0.5 mg twice a day.
But I also take Topamax for Headaches.
The topamax has no side affects at all for constipation but the clonazepam does.
Does anyone else have constipation taking Clonazepam????
thank you

It did for me, so I talked to my doctor, and he switched me to something else. I just tried to eat more fiber.

It is posssible because it is one of the only known benzos to actually decrease the release of serotonin. This can mean it is also worse for depression, too. But, decreasing the release of serotonin can be related to constipation.
