Were you looking for information about Klonopin? Klonipin is a common misspelling of Klonopin.
Klonopin® (clonazepam) is a drug that is licensed to treat various types of epileptic seizures and panic disorder. The prescription medication works by enhancing the effects of a certain chemical in the brain, which produces a naturally calming effect. Klonopin comes in the form of a tablet and as an orally disintegrating tablet. The drug is usually taken two or three times daily.
While most people have no problems with the drug, side effects are possible with Klonopin. A few of the more commonly reported side effects include drowsiness, coordination problems, and behavior problems. Some of the factors that can affect the dose your healthcare provider prescribes include the medical condition being treated, your age, and other medications you may be taking. Klonopin is not right for everyone. Tell your healthcare provider if you have glaucoma, breathing problems, or liver or kidney disease.
