No. Clonazepam is correctly termed a 'benzodiazepine'. It is a class IV scheduled drug, and although it does have abuse potential, it is not a narcotic since it does not act on opioid receptors in the brain.
No -- benzodiazepine. These days, the word "narcotic" refers to opiates -- medicines related to opium such as morphine, codeine, oxycontin, dilaudid, etc. Years ago, some grouped all medicines which could be mind-altering, sedating, and addictive under the term "narcotic." this confused the issue! Clonazepam is a benzodiazepine -- entirely different class from opiates/narcotics.
Klonopin (clonazepam) It is an anxiety medication of the benzodiazepine group, not a narcotic.
No. Simply no.
Benzo. Agree w dr. Ritholz. Clonazepam is a benzodiazapine. This class of medications is used as an anxiolytic, sedative, hypnotic orskeletal muscle relaxant.
