Not LIkley: Both medicines can cause some drowsiness so you will want to monitor this to see if the drowsiness is interfering with your daily activities. Clonzaepam is the more likely of the two to cause sedation. There is some abuse or dependence potential with clonazepam, but it is ok to take it regularly to get control of your anxiety/panic. In the long run it will be better to use it as needed.
