Negative Effects of Klonopin

The prescription medication Klonopin® (clonazepam) is commonly used for treating epileptic seizures and panic disorder. Although most people respond well to Klonopin, negative effects have been reported with this drug.
Some of Klonopin's negative effects that were reported during clinical studies included sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, coordination problems, drowsiness, and upper respiratory tract infections. Although these side effects can be bothersome, they are usually not serious.
Klonopin can cause psychological and physical dependence and is often abused. The risk of abuse and dependence is greater for those taking high doses of this drug for long periods of time (more than a few weeks). Klonopin is generally not recommended for people with a history of alcohol or drug abuse.
