Why is klonopin (clonazepam) addicting?

Why is klonopin (clonazepam) addicting?

Klonopin (clonazepam) addiction: Good question. For vulnerable people, the pleasurable sensations that make addictive drugs disastrously attractive occur when Dopamine levels in the brain’s reward area surge abruptly. Usually there are neurons in the brain that inhibit this result, by downregulating dopamine-producing neurons. Benzos like Klonopin (clonazepam) inhibit these "inhibitory" neurons -- taking the brakes off the Dopamine surge. ...Read more

Can you take kolonopin and valerian tea?

Can you take kolonopin and valerian tea?

Yes in Moderation: Klonopin (clonazepam) is a low potency longer half-life sedative hypnotic that acts at the GABA receptor in the brain. Some suspect valerian has similar mechanism. If it is indeed the case then you run the risk of potential synergism whereby the effects of one increases the others potency. Thus, be judicious to assess your sensitivity.
