I need help this week I have to travel by the plane for 10 hours. How many mg of klonopin (clonazepam) should I take before I get on the plane?

Depends: Even 1/2 of 0.5 mg pill may be enough if you have not been taking it on a regular basis. If you have been taking regularly then 0.5-1 mg above your usual dose, but not more than 2 mg at one time. Try to contact prescribing doc, you can also discuss other meds for underlying anxiety so that Klonopin (clonazepam) is more effective in such acute situations. ...Read more

Klonopin: I took the thermogenic from GNC called Liporush 8 hours ago today for the first time ever and I still am not feeling good.... can I take a klonopin.

I take 1/4 of a. 5mg klonopin (clonazepam) for anxiety on occasion. I took the last one 24 hours ago and want to have a few beers tomorrow. Is 48 hrs long enough?

I take 1/4 of a. 5mg klonopin (clonazepam) for anxiety on occasion. I took the last one 24 hours ago and want to have a few beers tomorrow. Is 48 hrs long enough?

Yes: But it depends on what you mean by a "few." if that is 1-2, no problem. Safe drinking limits for a woman is no more than 4 drinks on any one occasion, and averaging no more than 1 drink per day. Alcohol can be a source of anxiety problems if drinking is more than occasional and "social." but 2 beers 48 hours after 0.125 mg of Clonazepam should not present any problems. ...Read more

Is it dangerous to take 2 mg of klonopin, 10 mg of ambien (zolpidem) and 50 mg of trazodone all within a half hour in order to sleep? I'm a 140 lb woman.

Depends: Usually a doctor will not start with all three of those medications at that dosage. If the medication is being titrated up such dosages might be prescribed. SOmetimes Trazadone will be an even higher dosage.

I have frequent insomnia. Only get 3-4 hours sleep a day. Dr gave me klonopin (clonazepam) to help. Can I take this occasionally? Any risk of serious side effects?

Klonopin (clonazepam) & sleep: With insomnia, it's very important to discover its cause. Sometimes this is related to sleep hygiene issues that can be addressed: http://tinyurl. Com/ltjeke3 sometimes the insomnia is part of depression, and a psychiatrist & psychologist can be the best help. Other times, sleep studies are needed. Klonopin (clonazepam) is habit forming, and can oversedate you. There are better meds for sleep if needed. ...Read more

Took 600mg of tramadol, 8 fioricet, 25 mg amitripyline, all spaced out over 24 hours. Should I take clonidine or a. 1 klonopin (clonazepam) to keep from seizur?

Took 600mg of tramadol, 8 fioricet, 25 mg amitripyline, all spaced out over 24 hours. Should I take clonidine or a. 1 klonopin (clonazepam) to keep from seizur?

Short answer, no: I'd change the answer to yes if you have a history of seizures. However, if there is a history of seizures you need to just stop the tramadol. The other medications shouldn't predispose you to seizures. You aren't taking excessive amounts of tramadol, so I don't think you need to proactively take those medications to prevent seizure. Again, history is everything with this recommendation. ...Read more

You will be fine: Your answer about contacting the doctor was not completed. Not clear if you were able to contact. That is the correct thing to do. Another option is to go to your pharmacy and explain your situation. The pharmacist can attempt to contact your doctor on your behalf. Either way, you will most likely manage between Thanksgiving and Friday, when you can get your script filled. ...Read more

Is it ok to take 10mg paxil, (paroxetine) 1mg klonopin, 25mg atenlol?

Probably OK: The question is whether they interact metabolically or have additive side effects. Paroxetine (Paxil) inhibits enzyme 3A4, the metabolism (break down)path of clonazepam (Klonopin) WEAKLY, insignificant unless you have rare genetic limitation of 3A4. But each of these meds may cause drowsiness--be careful--test them before you try driving, and don't become sleep deprived. ...Read more

Dress rehersal: Well before the flight, do a dress rehearsal to discover your response time and likely reactions. Pick a day that you have no responsibilities to observe yourself. When you know the results, you'll know when to take it and what feelings to expect. Obviously, if you don't like it - don't use it for the flight.

Been taking klonopin (clonazepam) for a while at night for anxiety. Lately I have been having more anxiety after it takes effect. What's that about?

Tolerance?: You could be having tolerance to Clonazepam (Klonopin), taking more to achieve desired effects. Related to this is the pharmacodynamics and kinetics of benzodiazepines (similar to alcohol) in that as your body metabolizes the drug it increases agitation which can result in seizures (in extreme cases). Consider alternative treatments for anxiety including other medication options and psychotherapy. ...Read more
