Because : Because this is a controlled substance and a medication which can be abused it complicates things. If you believe the medication was stolen, i recommend contacting the police and filing a police report. This will strenghten your case for requesting a replacement prescription. Your insurance company may or may not be willing to pay for a replacement. Because it is a controlled substance, the pharmacy will not be able to replace it without a prescription. ...Read more
I was wondering if the medicine venlafaxine and clonazepam would cause me to just fall asleep? When I get home from work and sit I go to sleep
Agoraphobic. Tried zoloft (sertraline). Mind raced & couldn't sleep. 0.5mg klonopin/day works wonderfully. Don't need it everyday. Adequate long term solution?
Depends: on how often you take it. 0.5 mg is a very low dose but tolerance is a major problem with benzodiazepines especially if take frequently. If sertraline is the only other Ned you have tried there are many other options which may help with depression and insomnia as well. I would be happy to see you on my concierge practice through email, or live audio or visual consultation if you wish ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have sleep disorder so sometimes I take Clonazepam 0.5 for sleep but it works 2-2.5 hours after taking. Can I take Zolpidem for sleep instead?
Talk to your doctor : You can try zolpidem instead. Your doctor may suggest other options as well such as Trazodone. Be aware that you can experience sleep walking or sleep eating while on zolpidem. I know of a woman who ate an entire pie after taking zolpidem. I once had a patient who made an inappropriate phone call to his boss's wife after taking zolpidem. Be careful and talk to your doctor about your options. ...Read more

I take Effexor (venlafaxine) and klonopin is it normal to just fall asleep? I will come home from work sit down, watch tv and not even know I fell asleep
Sleep study: Drowsiness and sleepiness is a common side effect of many medications and can be additive when multiple agents are being taken. I would suggest having your PCP help you get a sleep study and EEG to determine if poor sleep quality is an undiagnosed contributing factor. Do you also have hypertension, gerd, snoring, high BMI... ...Read more
