Congratulation ...: I would like to congratulate and command you for closely working well with Doc to test Klonopin (clonazepam) out for working well for you; keep it on. But, beware that it's not a cure but modifying, and also try to void whenever urge to void arises and not hold it. Of course, never forget practicing a healthy lifestyle with no obsession as foundation of all care. Then, you will enjoy urination is happiness.

Klonopin (clonazepam) not good: Klonopon is addictive and if used with alcohol and opiates congaing medications, may be deadly. Urinary problem and leaks are age related and needs specific treatment for this condition. Klonopin (clonazepam) is irrelevant for this problem
