In brief: Klonopin/clonazepam

The medication is used commonly for anxiety including panic attacks, insomnia, restless leg syndrome, bruxism/teeth grinding, akithesia/restlessness but may be used in other ways.
It is a dea schedule IV controlled substance that can be addictive. It is potentially lethal combined with alcohol. If taken daily for a long period abrupt discontinuation can result in severe withdrawal seizure/death.
