Problems With Klonopin

Klonopin® (clonazepam) is a prescription medicine licensed for the treatment of panic disorder and certain types of epileptic seizures. Most people appear to tolerate this medication well. However, as with any medicine, it is possible to develop certain problems during treatment.
 
In clinical studies, some of the most common side effects that were reported with Klonopin included:
 
  • Drowsiness -- in up to 50 percent of people
  • Coordination problems -- up to 30 percent
  • Behavior problems -- up to 25 percent
  • Dizziness -- up to 12 percent
  • Upper respiratory tract infections (such as the common cold) -- up to 10 percent.
     
When side effects do occur, in most cases, they are mild and either do not require treatment or can be treated easily by you or your healthcare provider. However, some Klonopin problems (while occurring infrequently) are potentially serious and should be reported immediately to your healthcare provider. You should seek medical attention right away if you experience difficulty breathing, memory problems, or suicidal thoughts.
