    Question Anyone else get BRAIN ZAPS from taking KLONOPIN Clonazepam?

    I have been taking 2-3mg of Klonopin (clonazepam) per day for about 4 years now. The medication works great for my DSM-VI Panic Disorder I have. But now I am taking a look back at these brain zaps that I get every day, and I can trace it back to ever since I started taking this medication. I also take Diazepam for GAD, and sleep apnea (from anxiety).

    Has anyone else got these brain zaps while on and taking the Klonopin (clonazepam)? The brain zaps seem to be worse in the morning, and nothing takes the brain zaps away except other neurological nerve blockers, anti-seizure etc..

    This medication works so will for my panic disorder, but I have no idea where these brain zaps are coming from or why would a benzo (Klonopin) cause brain zaps when I am NOT even in withdrawl?

    Thanks and God Bless
