Hello! I just officially got diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder and panic and my doctor prescribed me a pretty low down of klonopin. Just .5 a day. Anyway, I am mostly really happy with the effects but I am wondering if there is a way to combat the drowsiness. Also, I get sick after I eat sometimes on it and that makes me not want to eat and causes me more anxiety! Has any one else had these effects?
I used to take Klonopin for GAD and panic. Yeah the drowsiness was there for me too. I ususally just took it when All I needed to do was lay on my couch and watch TV lol. I don't know if there really is a way to combat the drowsiness. But I was on 2mg which is a huge step up from .5 When I was a Senior in high school I was on .5 and managed to stay wake all day. Drink coffee lots of it I never got the sick from food thing, you should tell your doc about that maybe he can switch it up for you. Sorry, I don't know much about combating the drowsiness thats just pretty much what it does well did for me atleast

I just started taking klonopin 1mg twice a day,as needed. Meaning started yesterday. So far, I was able to ssleep better last night, so I appreciated the drowsiness. Haven't been sleeping lately. Huge anxiety due to 3 factors, pain, going off a bunch of meds too fast and a neighbor driving me insane...
The drowsiness should dissipate after some time, just don't drive right after you take it. And if it continues, your dr may want to lower your dose or something. Good luck
