My klonopin (clonazepam) wasn't worling, then dr told me stop taking 1 mg klonopin (clonazepam) and take 0.5 mg halcyon. The second day I was sdepressed, body ache, diarrhea?

I suggest that you review your diagnosis with your dr. If you are not seeing a psychiatrist then obtain a referral to see one. Perhaps psychological testing by a psychologist may help when discerning a diagnosis is a problem or a second opinion by another psychiatris. ...Read more
