What Is Clonazepam?

Clonazepam (brand name Klonopin) is a benzodiazepine medication prescribed to prevent and control seizures, and it is also prescribed to people who suffer from panic attacks. This medication is a central nervous system depressant drug that calms the brain and the nerves by acting on the GABA receptors, creating a sense of ease and muscle relaxation. Clonazepam (Klonopin) is taken orally as directed by a medical professional, usually two or three times per day, at the same time(s) every day.

Clonazepam Effects

The most common effects seen while taking Klonopin (clonazepam) are:

  • Relaxation of the mind and body
  • Mild euphoria
  • Tiredness/drowsiness
  • Dizziness/loss of coordination
  • Increased saliva production

People with a seizure disorder may experience worsening seizures when they first begin taking clonazepam. If this occurs, tell your doctor, as your dose may need to be adjusted. It is also important to tell your doctor if you experience suicidal thoughts or show signs of depression.

Signs of Clonazepam Abuse and Addiction

Common signs of Klonopin addiction include:

  • Using Klonopin for an extended period of time in higher than recommended doses
  • Persistent cravings for clonazepam
  • Developing legal, financial, relationship, or work problems due to clonazepam use
  • Losing interest in social life and hobbies
  • Using the medication when you don’t need it
  • Being unable to quit even when you want to

If you notice signs in yourself or are worried about a loved one’s addiction to Klonopin, it may be time to consider drug addiction treatment.

Clonazepam Withdrawal Symptoms

Common Klonopin withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Headache
  • High blood pressure
  • Memory loss
  • Nightmares
  • Anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Mood swings
  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Shaking
  • Muscle spasms

There are also psychological withdrawal symptoms that may occur, like:

  • Intense nightmares
  • Sadness
  • Anger or rage
  • Irritability

Quitting clonazepam suddenly is not recommended, as you may experience severe withdrawal symptoms like seizures, coma, or death. Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) plans for drug detox in substance abuse treatment programs can help you taper off the use of clonazepam (Klonopin) safely. Your acute withdrawal symptoms will peak around two weeks after your last dose, but some of the more subtle withdrawal symptoms may last a month or longer.

Long-Term Side Effects of Clonazepam Abuse

It is not generally recommended to use clonazepam (Klonopin) for long periods of time because of the potential to develop a Klonopin addiction. Other long-term side effects of clonazepam use are:

  • Fainting or vertigo
  • Impaired cognition and confusion
  • Reduced sex drive
  • Failure to form new memories

Getting drug and alcohol addiction treatment is advised before these side effects affect your overall quality of life. Clonazepam addiction and abuse can become a serious issue if left untreated.
