Re: clonazepam/klonopin Question
I've been taking 2 mg a day for years. Sometimes 1 during the day and 1 at night or just 2 a night. It is not working for me anymore. I get the worst indigestion after taking them. I'm seeing a shrink now (my GP prescribed the clonazepam) and he told me to get down to 1 a day as I'm not really seeing
any difference when I take it now. He said it can affect your memory, not just immediate but permanently. He wants me off it for good but you have to go down gradually. I take Zoloft for anxiety and depression and it hasn't been working too well so the shrink keeps upping my dose. I'll be on 200mg in a week. One thing my GP did prescribe and the shrink has increased is seraqual. It was originally prescribed for sleep only and knocked me on my butt the first few weeks I took it. Now I've found that it works quite well for anxiety and have just started taking .50 mg during the day and .50 mg at night. It's a mood stabilizer/antipsychotic and prescribed in much higher doses for people with schizophrenia or bi polar. You may want to consider that if the clonazepam does not work well for you.
