Yes: I use an old medicine for my patients with panic called nortriptyline. Because of how Paxil (paroxetine) can effect it's metabolism, it is a good idea to be completely off Paxil (paroxetine) for one week before taking the first dose of nortriptyline. Also, depression can be a side effect of klonopin.
