Today I was prescribed klonopin 1 mg tablets to be taken 3 times daily. This just seemed like alot to me and I was wondering if that was a high dosage for this type of medication. Answer: Higher than average, but this depends on the severity of the anxiety and your weight. You can certainly start with .5 mg twice a day and.
5 mg twice a day and work the dosage up every day watching for excessive sedation. However, this class of drugs is used commonly in pregnancy and seems to be pretty low risk. I suffered a major seizure as a result and immediay went back to taking the rivotril. If I was given Klonopin would it show up in a blood test? I would greatly appreciate expertise.
Just as it is when taking any type of medication, it is best to follow your doctor's order to the letter, when using either Ativan or Klonopin. Either of these may result in an over dosage, addiction, or can even be fatal when taken the wrong way. Summary: 1. Klonopin is used to treat seizure and panic disorders.
Today my Doctor switched my med to lorazepam1mg 3 x daily because the clonazepam seemed to stop working (tolorance probably). Is this an equi-anxiolytic dose meaning is 1mg of lorazepam equal to 2mgs of clonazepam for anxiety/ panic disorder?.
I'm almost 5 weeks as a first time mom and have my first dr spot tomorrow. I've been on some form of benzodiazepines for almost 15 years (I'm 37) and until recently I've taken extremely high doses. Since my husband and I started trying, I've gone from 8mgs of klonopin down to 2mgs per day and it's been so hard.
By the second day all of that tripled and I started having both visual and auditory hallucinations. I'm doing okay! I actually gave it a go weaning compley off klonopin and it was a horror show and definiy not an option. No sleep, no eating, couldn't go to work, tremors, heart palpitations.all within the first 24 hours. It was like someone has dosed me with LSD.
It's the compassionate and kind ladies that are far more prevalent and who I am so very thankful for. As for the people who come on here and dare to judge and/or make sweeping generalizations clearly knowing nothing -- they are easy to ignore.
Klonopin is a benzodiazepine that has been found to be incredibly effective in the treatment of anxiety disorders, insomnia, and epilepsy.
