Im on methadone n my dr gave me a prescription 4 clonazepam. It's only 0.5 so is it safe 2 take them 2gather?

Not really: While it's safe from a purely medical perspective, it's not safe from a recovery perspective. If you take Methadone because you previously abused opiates, it's risky to take anything else that people easily and often abuse. This includes tranquilizers like clonazepam. If you are prescribed them at all, it's vitally important that you take them exactly as prescribed, and not take extra. ...Read more

I take clonazepam and i am prescribed methadone. how do i get a script for the clonazepam? Ive been taking 2mg a day for 8yrs.

From one's doctor: Clonazepam is a controlled substance (the important thing is the reasons why it is a controlled substance). A prescription can be obtained by seeing a doctor at the doctor's office. Hopefully, this is how a person has been getting the controlled substance over the past 8 years. The patient and doctor should have an ongoing care relationship. ...Read more
