Can taking clonazepam cause hostility and aggression?

1 doctor answer
Dr. John Moranville

Possibly: Usually Clonazepam is used to decrease anxiety which can lead to irritability and aggressive behavior. On the other hand Clonazepam can decrease inhibition much like alcohol which can increase risk of expression of underlying hostility and lead to aggressive behavior. There are many other meds and/or therapy more effective for underlying cause of hostility. See doctor.
