Clonazepam is an anti-anxiety medication that is a part of the
benzodiazepine family. Clonazepam acts by intensifying the effects of gamma-aminobutyric
acid (GABA) in the brain. GABA is a neurotransmitter that suppresses brain activity.
Excessive brain activity is thought to manifest as anxiety or other psychiatric disorders.
Klonopin is useful alone, or in conjunction with other seizure treatments,
in the management of akinetic seizures, petit mal seizures, myoclonus, and
Lennox-Gastaut syndrome. Some studies have shown that up to 30% of patients have
reported a loss of anticonvulsant activity. This has been shown to occur, in most
cases, within 3 months of taking the medication. In some cases it is necessary to
make adjustments to dosage.
Klonopin is also used in the treatment of panic disorder, with or without agoraphobia.
Your doctor will prescribe your exact dosage. The dose of clonazepam is tailored
to the patient's requirements.
Medications and drugs that slow the brain's processes, such as alcohol and narcotics may
interact with clonazepam. It is best to refrain from or limit these drugs when taking clonazepam.
Clonazepam has been assigned to pregnancy category D by the FDA. If you are pregnant
or plan on becoming pregnant advise your doctor before taking clonazepam. Clonazepam
and other benzodiazepines may cause fetal damage, including congenital malformations,
when it is taken by pregnant women in their first trimester. Discuss any plans to take
clonazepam with your doctor. Clonazepam should be avoided in the first trimester,
and ideally throughout pregnancy. Clonazepam should only be given during pregnancy
when there are no alternatives and benefit outweighs risk.
Clonazepam is found in human milk in small amounts. Knowledge as to the effect clonazepam
has on nursing infants is still limited. The American Academy of Pediatrics describes other
benzodiazepines as drugs "whose effect on nursing infants is unknown but may be of concern".
The most commonly noted side effects associated with clonazepam are sedation/drowsiness,
which is reported in approximately one-half of patients, dizziness (one-third of patients),
ataxia (a type of clumsiness), weakness, and unsteadiness.
Other side effects of clonazepam may include: dizziness, confusion, increased saliva,
muscle aches, frequent urination, blurred vision, loss of interest in sex, fatigue,
depression, memory loss, nervousness, upper respiratory congestion or infection,
constipation, decreased appetite.
If you experience any of the following serious side affects call emergency straight away:
trouble breathing or swallowing, chest pain, severe rash or hives, swelling of your face,
lips, or tongue, worsening depression, or thoughts of suicide.
Like all benzodiazepines, clonazepam can cause physical dependence. If this medication
has been used regularly for a long time or in high doses stopping it suddenly may cause
withdrawal reactions. Withdrawal symptoms may include: seizures, mental/mood changes,
stomach/muscle cramps, or shaking. Talk to your doctor if you intend to stop this
medication. Your doctor may reduce your dose gradually.
If this medicine is used continually for an extended period of time its effectiveness
may decrease. Talk with your doctor if this medication stops working well.
