A healthcare provider may prescribe Klonopin® (clonazepam) to treat certain kinds of epileptic seizures and panic disorder. The medication causes a calming effect by affecting a certain chemical in the brain. Klonopin comes in tablet form and in orally disintegrating tablets, and is usually taken two or three times a day. If you forget to take your dose as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
Most people tolerate Klonopin well. However, as with any drug, side effects may occur. Some of the common side effects of Klonopin include drowsiness, coordination problems, and behavior problems. Currently, both brand-name and generic versions are licensed for sale. Klonopin is not suitable for everyone. Before beginning treatment, tell your healthcare provider about all medical conditions you have and all medications you are taking, including vitamins and herbal supplements.
