I take .25mg of clonazepam in the evening, 15-20 minutes later I have strong, pounding pulse that is regular but slower, BP drop. Concern or not?
Hard to say: Clonazepam is very slowly absorbed, and it generally takes 1-2 hours to get a blood level, so it's hard to know what is causing symptoms 15-20 minutes after taking it.

A cardiologist is best qualified to evaluate abnormalities of heart rhythm and assess your overall cardiac status. ...Read more
