Klonopin belongs to a class of drugs called benzodiazepines used to treat seizure and panic disorders. By decreasing abnormal electrical activity in the brain, it works. This medicine is generally considered safe as a prescribed medication because it is recognized as a Schedule IV drug under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). After using Klonopin for anxiety, you can see improvements within hours. The usual dosage of this medicine depends on an individual’s weight, age, and other medical conditions they may have. Klonopin increases the levels of the brain chemical GABA (Gamma-aminobutyric acid) in the brain, which helps to relieve anxiety and stop seizures and can last from 8 to 12 hours. However, it can be habit-forming and is capable of causing a psychological or physical dependence that can quickly develop into an addiction, so a person may become addicted to Klonopin. While taking Klonopin, you should avoid alcohol because it can slow breathing and possibly lead to death. Longer use of Klonopin can put an individual at risk of numerous side effects like drowsiness, dizziness, lack of coordination, trouble thinking, muscle and joint pain, increased urination, increased saliva, blurred vision, rash or hives, increased heart rate, difficulty breathing or swallowing, etc.
