Addicted to Clonazepam

We Can Help

Clonazepam is a benzodiazepine that has muscle relaxant, sedative, anticonvulsant and hypnotic properties. Clonazepam is considered a ‘highly potent’ benzodiazepine with a rapid onset of action, meaning that it reaches peak blood levels in one to four hours after oral administration, but leaves the body in 18-60 hours.

One-third of Clonazepam patients will develop tolerance to the drug in 2-4 weeks and will suffer from the Benzodiazepine Withdrawal Syndrome, a grouping of extremely painful symptoms that can last many months. Even after short-term use (7-14 days) Clonazepam can prove to be too challenging to just stop, even a slow taper.

Clonazepam exerts its action on GABA, the most prevalent calming neurotransmitter of the human body that serves to control excitability, anxiety and fear. GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is a critical regulator of essential body functions and all benzodiazepines down-regulate GABA. As tolerance to the drug occurs, fear, anxiety, insomnia and pain increase. Each dose increase will temporarily ease symptoms but the only way to regain normal GABA function is to recover from Clonazepam addiction.  

Our clients never intended to become addicted to Clonazepam -- they were attempting to treat anxiety; insomnia or muscle tension without awareness the medication they were taking could rebound into worsening symptoms. They needed help to regain their lives from Clonazepam Dependence.

What is Clonazepam?

(Klonopin, Rivotril, Rivatril)

Klonopin (Clonazepam) is a medium acting benzodiazepine derivative that has anticonvulsant, muscle relaxant and very potent anti-anxiety qualities.  The half-life is 18-50 hours depending on how it is metabolized by the liver.  Clonazepam has a fast onset of action and is classified as a high potency benzodiazepine, used for anxiety and as a second line treatment of epilepsy. It is not recommended for long-term (greater than 10-14 days) due to the development of tolerance for anxiety and the anticonvulsant effects.  Some potentially serious side effects may develop, including interference with cognitive functions and behavior. Both physiological and psychological dependence can occur and one third of individuals treated with benzodiazepines for longer than 4 weeks can develop a dependence and subsequent withdrawal symptoms upon dose reduction. High dosage and longer term use increases the risk and severity of dependence and withdrawal symptoms, yet even low dosages can cause dependence.  Clonazepam should be reduced gradually to reduce withdrawal effects and other risks.
