What is Clonazepam Prescribed for?

Clonazepam is a third-line option used to treat anxiety disorders [2*] . Anxiety disorders are typically associated with symptoms such as profound worry or panic, avoidance behavior, irritability, and restlessness. Other present physical symptoms may be increased heart rate, shortness of breath, and nausea.

In Addition to prescribing Klonopin for anxiety, doctors may also use it to treat a panic disorder. This disorder involves sudden panic attacks, a fear of having more attacks, as well as anxious feelings about the consequences and changes in behavior associated with attacks. In the treatment of social anxiety disorder, clonazepam may be prescribed in addition to antidepressants, such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs).

It is also used to treat certain seizure disorders, such as Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, myoclonic seizures, and absence seizures. Because it’s a benzodiazepine, it helps calm the brain by binding to the GABA receptors.

Other off-label uses of Klonopin include the treatment of insomnia [3*] , REM sleep behavior disorder [4*] , and restless leg syndrome [5*] . It is also important to note that Klonopin is not a long-term solution for anxiety disorders and other health issues because prolonged use can lead to dependence or addiction. The FDA recommends it to be used no longer than 12 weeks as there is no safety data in humans for prolonged use.

What to Say to Get Prescribed Klonopin?

Concentrate on illustrating your symptoms and concerns rather than directly telling your doctor you want to get a clonazepam prescription. Note that clonazepam might not be the best choice of medication for you, so your physician may prescribe an alternative better suited for your condition or specific symptoms.

Contraindications and Precautions

Clonazepam may not be the best choice for some patients because of potential negative effects. It might not be suitable if you have:

  • Allergy to clonazepam or severe side effects from other anxiety medications.
  • A personality disorder, or ADHD.
  • Present or past alcohol or drug abuse.
  • Acute narrow-angle glaucoma.
  • Kidney, liver, or lung problems.

Klonopin is not suitable for pregnant women, those trying to get pregnant, or breastfeeding women. Also, if you are on certain medications, such as other CNS depressants, opioids, and muscle relaxants; Klonopin won’t be prescribed to avoid potential medication interactions.

Risks and Side Effects

Like all medicines, Klonopin can cause side effects. The most common ones include:

  • Drowsiness
  • Disturbed sleep, such as vivid dreams
  • Muscle weakness

Some rare and possibly serious side effects [6*] include:

  • The whites of your eyes turn yellow — an indication of liver problems.
  • Auditory or visual hallucinations.
  • Problems with movement, coordination, and muscle control.
  • Excessive nosebleeds.
  • Mood changes — more likely in children and those over 65 years of age.
  • Worsening of seizures.
  • Suicidal thoughts.
  • Dependence and addiction.

To reduce the possibility of severe side effects, take Klonopin as prescribed by your healthcare provider. Otherwise, clonazepam can become habit-forming, which means there’s potential for misuse and addiction. This is part of the reason you cannot get Klonopin online without a prescription.

Consult a healthcare professional online and get a comprehensive review of the benefits and risks of the chosen medication.
