Klonopin

Klonopin

I have been prescribed clonazepam for restless leg sometimes it works to calm the legs sometimes it doesn't

My ex-psychiatrist had me on this awful med for over 12 years. I found out, like other benzodiazepines, it is addicting and can make you drowsy. Somehow I managed to go cold turkey but have a friend who has been on it almost as long and can't get off the med, as her body has become completely dependent on it. I have to agree, sometimes it was useful and other times, not. I just wish my ex-doc had been honest with me about what the klonipin does to your brain (literally and figuratively) and all the other garbage other docs had me consistently on for 26 years!!!
