I took tramadol for headache at 830 it is now 11 can I take my clonazepam!?

Ultram & Klonopin (clonazepam): ultram (tramadol) is for pain while Klonopin (clonazepam) is a seditive / anxiolytic. They can be taken together if prescribed by the same doctor but they are for different symptoms. They may cause additive sedation so it is not recommended to take either medication while operating machinery and/ or driving a motorized vehicle. They are also as needed medications. Seek your doctor for advise ...Read more

Am I able to take remeron (mirtazapine) and clonazepam at the same time? It says to take each at night but the next day I had a headache.

Am I able to take remeron (mirtazapine) and clonazepam at the same time? It says to take each at night but the next day I had a headache.

Sedation is additive: Headache is a symptom caused, triggered and worsened by many factors. In general medications which can be sedating such as Remeron (mirtazapine) and klonapin can be additive. So though one can take both at night, it may be too much and therefore unnecessary. Your an individual, your doctor knows you best and is the best to review with you. ...Read more

See doctor: Headache may be separate problem from Klonopin (clonazepam) use. See pcp for eval of headaches/ proper diagnosis. Let your doc know all meds you take and any alcohol/drug/tobacco/caffeine use. Write down how long you've been on Klonopin (clonazepam) and why, also when headaches began. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Swollen inf. Nasal turbinate 1 side. Roid = headache. How long for astepro daily @ nite to work? Take claratin d at noon, klonopin. 5 mg for anxiety 2 x day. Ok to take all 3 meds together daily?

See doc: Astepro works in 15 mins, but not all turbinate hypertrophy is due to allergy. Make sure that you aim the nozzle towards the side and not the center of the nose. It's ok to take all these together but you should find out the cause for the hypertrophy. ...Read more

Taper too fast: Detox from Klonopin (clonazepam) depends on why it was taken in the first place. If taken for an anxiety disorder, a replacement eg SSRI helps and I reduce gradually (0.25mg per week) to prevent relapse. I would recommend reduction of 10-25% of dose per week otherwise. Some detoxes are much faster but that is unpleasant. ...Read more

Can weaning off of klonopin (clonazepam) cause pressure headaches?

Can weaning off of klonopin (clonazepam) cause pressure headaches?

Yes: Withdrawal from benzodiazepines (which includes Klonopin) can result in headaches. Because Klonopin is long acting, it is usually easier to wean off than the short acting ones such as xanax (alprazolam). This is best under a doctor's supervison. ...Read more

Had a seizure a week ago due to problems with a medication (klonopin). Now having daily headaches. Will this go away?

Had a seizure a week ago due to problems with a medication (klonopin). Now having daily headaches. Will this go away?

Slow taper: It is unclear from your question what dose of Klonopin (clonazepam) you were taking and how fast you discontinued the medicine. Done too quickly, it can result in seizures. Hopefully, you are followed by an MD to do this correctly. Most likely the headaches will disappear with time if they were not preexistent to the Klonopin (clonazepam). ...Read more

on 3 mg of klonopin (clonazepam) as inpatient...dr added tegretol which dropped klonopin (clonazepam) to about 2.0 some headaches & tinnutitus. Will this eventually go away?

on 3 mg of klonopin (clonazepam) as inpatient...dr added tegretol which dropped klonopin (clonazepam) to about 2.0 some headaches & tinnutitus. Will this eventually go away?

Hopefully so..: Response to decreasing Klonopin (clonazepam) or other similar medications depends on the amount previously taken, duration of use, speed of taper and patient response. The Klonopin (clonazepam) dose you were on is a relatively high dose. The addition of Tegretol appears to coincide with the decrease. It is unclear as to whether your symptoms are due to one or the other or both. Recommend discussing with your doctor. Best. ...Read more

What is more likely to cause headaches, paroxetine or clonazepam? I've had it since on them. Also what's the difference btwn headache & a migraine?

What is more likely to cause headaches, paroxetine or clonazepam? I've had it since on them. Also what's the difference btwn headache & a migraine?

Talk to doctor: Second question first: a headache is a symptom, not a diagnosis. There are many kinds of headaches, due to many different causes. A migraine headache is a specific kind of headache.
In my practice, I can't recall any patients getting headaches on either paroxetine or clonazepam, so I'm not sure they are connected. Please discuss this with your treating physician, who can answer these questions. ...Read more

Taking klonopin, (clonazepam)wellbutrin, luvox, evekeo and getting headaches. Any idea why?

Reasons abound: Without more data I can think of more reasons you may have headaches than gifts on Santa's sleigh. Medication interaction is an obvious AND HUGE possibility. But also why are you using each medication? Headaches can be seen with each drug as well as the illness being treated by itself. Would you like more information? Let's set up a consult: www.
