I was perscribed Clonazepam for nearly a year, it was in short the worst year of my life and nearly the last.

This medication was at first massively effective, it led to over conifdence, I moved out of home on my own, found a girlfriend who wasnt right for me and insulted my father and hurt his feelings without need.

During my time on Clonazepam my personality disorder got worse, I developed insomnia, increased paranoia and experienced my first hallucinations, I would reccomend to anyone being perscribed this drug that you ask your doctor for an altrenative immediately.

At the end of my time on it after several overdoses I managed to stop taking it, there folloed the worst withdrawl symproms of my life, worse than Marjiuna, diazepam and co-proxamol. After this I found out the differing opionions from many doctors on this drug but one theme was clear, a constant which all of them agreed upon except for the doctor that originally prescribed it. This was that this drug makes paranoia and personality disorders worse, far worse.

Ever since this I have been more than hesitant to except mediaction and allways seeking more than one medical opinion on my treatment, I will also NEVER accept a perscritpion from any doctor who is on temporary rotation as this was the original perscriber of the drug. I dont advocate giving medication the boot if it works for you but I do suggest that everyone seeks a second opnion allways :(

Hey insom,

Thanks for the advice, but keep in mind different meds work differently for different people. If not for Clonzapam, I would be house bound. Now I am able to hold down a good job. Sorry it didn't work as well for you, thats why these meds are a dime a dozen.

Grind it till you find it,

Devin

I'm glad it works for you Devin and you uare right about meds being very much on a person to person basis.

I am wondering though what dose you are on and how long you have been on them as they were perfect for me in the first 2-3 months, it was after that the problems began.
