    Hi Elaine,

    I have been on Clonazepam for about a month now. I was told told take .5 mg morning and night, but have elected to only take .25 mg morning and night. I had high anxiety with really bad leg jerking/jittery/ rubbery legs and many other symptoms that go with anxiety.

    It did make a big difference and almost the next day my legs were better.

    What I have found is that it does make me very sleepy. I also take a blood pressure pill and have found that I also had to half the dose of that as my blood pressure was getting quite low. It also lowers my heart rate.

    If I can help any further please message me.

    What is your dosage?

      Whch one, hun?

      I took clonazepam for anxiety and toom 2 mg, four times a day. I also took imipramine (years ago) and although it's a very 'old' anti-depressant, it it still chosen where the more modern ones have failed.

      Imipramine DOES NOT CAUSE DROWSINESS. It's sister, drug, amitriptylene, DOES CAUSE DROWSINESS.

      I took clonazepam for a short while and it certainly helped me sleep, but it also caused hallucinations (visual) so weaned off the clonazepam and next was prescribed mirtazapine, which worked very well, with no side-effects.

      You must remember that different people have different reactions to the same meds. Stay with us and we'll support you.

    There are so so many meds out there for anxiety. Your doc has to start somewhere. If you don't start to feel better in 2 weeks, call them back. If you notice any side effects, call them and they will try something else.I am just glad your taking the leap. So many people would rather suffer then try medication. You are going to be feeling lot's better in no time. Way to go!!!!
