Other names for Klonopin
Klonopin is the brand name for the drug clonazepam, a benzodiazepine that poses an addiction risk. The medication is often taken by people who want to relax. It achieves this by decreasing or slowing electrical activity in the brain.
You can become physically and mentally dependent on klonopin, especially if you take it for several weeks. Misuse of the drug can cause serious symptoms such as memory problems, seizures, shaking, depression, harmful thoughts and losing touch with reality. Drinking or using street drugs in combination with clonazepam can increase the risk of serious complications. Use of the drug can also increase the risk of life-threatening breaking problems, sedation or coma.
The more you use Klonopin the more tolerance you develop to the drug. This can make you want to take more in order to achieve the desired effect or high you’re seeking. This could lead to an overdose.
