Klonopin is a benzodiazepine drug used to treat serious disorders such as epilepsy, mania, psychosis, anxiety and panic disorders and hyperekplexia. It is produced by F. Hoffmann-La Roche, a leading company in the field of pharmaceuticals and research, with over a century’s worth of experience, that offers a wide selection of pharmaceutical products, research and diagnostic tools.
Klonopin is considered a highly addictive drug, hence it is only available by prescription. Due to its anxiolytic, sedative and anticonvulsant action, it is seen as one of the main drugs to treat severe conditions such as epilepsy and anxiety disorder.
The list of adverse effects and contraindications for this class of drugs is considerably high, so caution is advised when taking Klonopin, even if prescribed by a doctor.
Klonopin contains: Clonazepam, Cornstarch, Lactose, Magnesium stearate and Microcrystalline cellulose
The active pharmaceutical ingredient in Klonopin is Clonazepam, a benzodiazepine drug used to treat anxiety, panic disorders, epileptic seizures and mania. It is considered to have an effect that lasts longer than most drugs of it class.
The way in which benzodiazepines work is by enhancing the effectiveness of GABA, which leads to sedation, muscle relaxation, reduced convulsions and amnesia. Clonazepam in particular has been shown to have strong effects against epilepsy, HPPD, hyperekplexia, parasomnia, and symptoms of lateral sclerosis.
Like all benzodiazepine drugs, Klonopin has a wide series of adverse effects. These commonly include drowsiness, euphoria and lessened cognitive and motor performances, but can sometimes include aggression, lack of libido, hallucinations and amnesia. This class of drugs also has another type of adverse effects, known as paradoxical effects, as would be increased seizure activity for epileptics.
Prolonged use of Clonazepam can lead to tolerance to its anticonvulsant effects, rendering it useless for people suffering from epilepsy. It is not recommended for children under 18, and caution is advised when administering it to elderly people due to an increased risk of impairment.
The maximum recommended dose is 0.5 – 1mg per day, but seeing as Klonopin is a prescription drug, it is up to your doctor to decide the optimal dose for you.

Klonopin is a prescription drug, so it is up to your doctor to decide whether this is the right solution for you. Due to the numerous advere effects that this medication has been shown to have, we advise it be administered in a controlled environment, at least the first few times.
Its short-term effects have been shown to be promising, but it is not advised for long-term treatment, due to the high risk of addiction and the lack of trials of long-term side effects.
If you have been prescribed Klonopin, we recommend you research the drug in order to prepare for its potential adverse effects. Also, going above the prescribed dosage is highly discouraged, due to the strong sedative effect that the active ingredient might present.
