Currently having a lengthy hypoglycemia attack; payday and protein bar 45 minutes ago. Now eating beef. Anxiety symptoms still. There. Help?!

Sounds like a panic: Attack or Klonopin (clonazepam) withdrawal. If I am correct and it is a panic attack which I'm assuming it is because your blood sugar should've normalized by now.

Either way you should contact your doctor and ask specifically how much Klonopin (clonazepam) you should take to get the symptoms under control. Not knowing your dose or if you missed a dose makes it impossible to give you any more detailed advice. ...Read more
