Seek help: You are certainly in no position to be caring for two kids under those circumstances. Call your physician and discuss your problem. He may tell you to stop it or change meds.If you think this needs to be addressed immediately and it is a weekend.You may have to be treated at the emergency room.

Yes ER if : A trip to the er is wise, especially if safety of the children are compromised. The symptoms described may stem from a physical or psychiatric conditions & difficult to assess properly online. It may also be signs of klonipin withdrawal. A timely visit to the family doctor and a psychologist may be very beneficial. Take care of yourself so you can take care of your children.
