Klonopin, on the other hand, being an anti-anxiety medication
, does not usually cause any weight
gain, but will cause drowsiness and that
is why, I assume, your doctor placed you on it, although there are many other medications to aid in sleep that are not as habit-forming as Klonopin.
I don't know what your diagnois is, but if it is just for depression, I would discuss the use of Klonopin for sleep, unless you also suffer from an anxiety disorder.
