Valium or klonopin (clonazepam) better for myclonus? Have been on valium, but is startin' not 2 work...Neuro say klonopin (clonazepam) is usually used! Would it be a better tx
Possibly. Both drugs are in the benzodiazepine family; so both should work. Both are used for muscle spasm, periodic leg movements, etc. If you've been taking valium for a while, its effect may be lessening; so a switch to Klonopin (clonazepam) may bring more relief. Perhaps alternating between them as body adapts to one will provide relief for longer time. Otherwise, see doc for alternate med family.
