Lorazepam VS Clonazepam? - December 6th 2011, 02:35 AM

Have any of you ever been on Clonazepam? Lorazepam? Comparison? Does it make you more drowsy? I think Iím going to be switched from Lorazepam to Clonazepam for my work anxiety, so can somebody give me an answer?

I've never been on Lorazepam but I've been on Clonazepam and it worked wonders for my anxiety. It did make me tired which was normal because I took it when I felt an on coming anxiety attack. So it calmed me down, made me tired, and I was really relaxed. I guess it all depends on the person.

I always thought Clonazepam was the benzo you took every day like normal medication. Then again I wouldn't know, as I've never been on it or personally known anybody on it.

Is your doctor switching you because you're building up a tolerance?

I took the Klonopin. It does help with anxiety, and I couldn't tell you if it makes you drowsy or not because I was on 5 other things that could make you drowsy at the same time.

The problem with it is that it is extremely addictive.

Yeah, actually. I am building up a tolerance to the Lorazepam, so the psychiatrist I saw at the clinic suggested I go onto Clonazepam. It's actually not meant to be taken everyday, if I'm not mistaken, considering the Clonazepam is only supposed to be temporary, until I find a regular psychiatrist to prescribe me something that I can be on everyday and be monitored (in case of any side effects) for my Anxiety.

Dream, I've taken that into consideration, but it's going to be temporary, then I'm going to withdraw from it with supervision from a regular psychiatrist (and my GP might want to check on me too).

I posted this same question on my Tumblr, and got some input from somebody who has been on both medications. So I got my answer, I think.
