Effects of smoking klonopin

Common Questions and Answers about Effects of smoking klonopin


Avatar f tn 0 I quit smoking as soon as i got anxiety because with the shortness of breath from anxiety it was hard to smoke. I have been alcohol free for soo long. I eliminated caffiene, i dont know about any other stimulants but i belleive i have.
Avatar n tn Then you are setting yourself up for lots of side effects and a hard time coming off the drugs. There are a very few who get lucky and can w/d pretty quickly with no problems but that is not the majority. I personally think Dr's WAY overprescribe it because it is the easy way out. I think it should be used for emergency only and then no more than a few weeks. Hope this helps some.
Avatar n tn Hi Ryan and everyone. I was on xanax for 1.5 years and it became more of a drug than a medicine for me. Not on purpose, but it drops of so quick it leaves you wanting the next. I have just been put on klonopin but am a smoker. I am told this makes it less effective. So, once I quit smoking, will I feel the full effect of this medication? Or am I screwed because I started taking it as a smoker. Also am on wellbutrin but can't seem to take advantage of the "quitting smoking" side effect.
Avatar n tn Hi susie, welcome to the forum from hell (just kidding), Ever use Valium or Xanax or Librium? Klonopin is a member of the same drug family, called benzodiazepines. They are especially effective anti-anxiety, muscle relaxant and tranquilizer drugs. Klonopin is also used as an anti-seizure drug. Among these drugs, Klonopin is longer acting. Like Valium and the others, it is fairly addictive. Like Valium and the others, it is tricky to go off of after using it for a long time.
Avatar n tn Hi, I'm currently taking a low dosage of Klonopin (2mg/day)to treat anxiety/panic attacks. I've been taking it for 2 months (it started out of the blue.) Is there anyone who was on it before they got pregnant? I'd really like to have a baby soon but am terrified of what will happen when I stop taking the medication. Wondering if there's a similar drug that's safe (know that's unlikely) or if anyone's been in the same circumstance? thanks!
Avatar n tn 2) Do you think I didn't give the Effexor enough of a chance and the Klonopin could be masking the effects of the Effexor? Do you think I would be fine with just the Effexor? 3) I am seeing a therapist who thinks I am fine now since my meds are working, but eventually (especially with the Klonopin) aren't I going to have to up the doses to get the same reaction?
Avatar n tn Valium (or another benzodiazepine such as Klonopin, Librium, Ativan or Xanax). Of these, Valium and Klonopin are best suited for tapering since they come in tablet form. Librium is also an excellent detox benzo, but comes in capsules, making it hard to taper the dose. Ativan or Xanax should only be used if you can't get one of the others. 2. Imodium (over the counter, any drug or grocery store). 3. L-Tyrosine (500 mg caps) from the health food store. 4.
Avatar n tn Are there any harmful long-term effects of DXM? For example, if you take one bottle of Robitussin every month. Also, is there a difference between the cough syrup and the gel caps?
225570 tn?1191290673 xanax is rough coming off, not that withdrawal from Klonopin is a picnic but I think there is less chance of major side effects. Also klonopin defenitley eases my anxiety better than xanax. Xanax is highly addictive and tough to come off. Klonopin not so much and it releases into the blood stream slower so less chance of euphoria, therebye making it easy to step your dose down without ill effects.
Avatar n tn Re Seizures and Marijuana Have NOT been Able to find ANY Studies to Link the Use of Marijuana to Seizures. BUT As is among the "Addictive Mind Substances", Have LOTS of Evidence of the Effects of Its Addictive Properties. AFTER using Marijuana for a while AND THEN SUDDENLY STOPPING, it IS ALMOST Guaranteed that the Person WILL HAVE a Seizure within the next 4 Days.
718468 tn?1232418047 Even she has said Valium or Klonopin would be better. I am fully aware of the dark side of these pills, I've done a lot of research and still learn more all the time but at this point in time, I personally feel the pills are worth the risk vs. having a heart attack or stroke. I think all of us taking these meds should be as informed as we can be about them. I am afraid of physical dependency but not as afraid as suffering a heart attack.
6814174 tn?1385052560 The specific considerations addressed above regarding the use of anticonvulsants for epilepsy in women of childbearing potential should be weighed in treating or counseling these women. Because of experience with other members of the benzodiazepine class, Klonopin is assumed to be capable of causing an increased risk of congenital abnormalities when administered to a pregnant woman during the first trimester.
Avatar n tn If it is causing edema, and you want to continue, you should cut down on the smoking to see what happens...it could be the combination of these two that is causing a problem.
189269 tn?1189759425 I will be starting TX in 2 months I suffer from OCD, some of the posts I read about the emotional side effects really scare me. My therapist and doctor are aware of me starting TX and say they will be there for me. I already am on anti depressants and Klonopin for anxiety I hope that is all I will need.
Avatar f tn I am currently 10 weeks pregnant, taking 2mg of klonopin x3 a day. I saw a perinatal psychiatrist and she told me the two concerns were that the baby has a small chance of being born with cleft pallet and it might make the baby lethargic. She told me that I should have ultrasounds more frequent than a woman not taking such a high dose. I'm hoping to hear some responses from some women who took the exact same dose as I am, and how their babies were affected by it, if affected at all.
Avatar m tn It has been two months since I saw that specialist, and I have yet to get myself to take the Klonopin. I am deathly afraid of side effects, specifically allergic reactions or the warning of "intense fear" that my lable discusses. I have seen some people say they had very bad reactions, other say that it ruined their memory, etc. I already take a low dose beta blocker for my heart which affects my memory (Inderal), so the last thing I need is another drug to mess it up even more.
Avatar n tn Greetings, I was just reading and it seems that benzodiazepines are of real worry and rightfully so. I was on huge amounts of klonopin, xanax, valium and ativan and got off them with no worries with my doctor. The greatest help is to express your concerns with your doctor. There is nothing to worry about or feel ashamed. You have done nothing wrong. Even if you are taking more than prescribed, which most all of us with mental illness have done, your doctor is your path to freedom.
Avatar m tn My entire life I have had moderate anxiety, the type that makes you quite nervous to do the most simple things in public. Never has it triggered anything more than a moderate panic attack that subsided shortly after removing myself from the situation. Recently however, while smoking weed, I felt like I was having a heart attack and possibly bleeding internally..
Avatar n tn ) Last week, I read up on some of the potential side effects of taking Effexor, and blurry vision is one of them. So, I'm on my 3rd day of coming off the drug. I read that the Amino Acid, L-Theanine, which is an ingredient in Green Tea, works to keep the brain in an "Alpha Wave" state. This state is, Awake, but Relaxed. The other waves are as follows: Delta Wave = Deep Sleep, Theta Wave = Light Sleep, and Beta Wave = Awake, Excited.
Avatar f tn I have 3 1/2 months to go of the required 6 months and I still suffer from side effects esp. extreme tiredness. On anti depressant or else I,d be very down. I am new to the computer and to the forum as well as to support. I want to learn from others how it has been for them after treatments.... 6 months and longer. I sure would like to feel better... I expected to feel better and so that is why I am disappointed... I sleep a lot. I am truly tired. All tests are good but..
480448 tn?1426952138 (movie like, in my experiences). Depersonalization is a subjective experience of unreality of one's self. So the difference is...rerealization relates more to the external environment...our outside world, whereas depersonalization relates more to our sense of "self"...that "we" don't feel like who we are. Both of these sensations are caused by a shift/change in the brain.
1671244 tn?1304794585 Benzo withdrawals don't dissipate after one week, especially with a drop of .5mgs of Klonopin. IMO, this is a true withdrawal issue because of the huge drop in dosage.
Avatar m tn The effects of the medication could wear off even before you realise or feel its effects. The incidence of side effects are low. In the study of 3911 patients, the most frequent adverse reactions were: chest pain/angina pectoris (19.7%), electrocardiographic changes (most commonly ST-T changes) (15.9%), headache (12.2%), and dizziness (11.8%). So, Good Luck with your procedure. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
225570 tn?1191290673 From whay Ryan has stated, the alcohol can diminish the effects of the Klonopin, causing anxiety the next day.
Avatar n tn If I must go through these withdrawal symptoms anyway, I'm tempted to just go off of it altogether because the side effects of taking antidepressants STINKS! I am convinced that these drugs are overprescribed. Anyway, I will need someone to help me get through these next few weeks of withdrawal HELL! Is anyone willing to see me through it? I could use a friend just about now. Thanks!
Avatar m tn Imitrex (100mg) but after reading the information inserts included with each drug describing the possible side effects of each of these I'm a bit concerened about taking them. My headaches are usually (not always) located on the left side of my head, above and behind my left eye. They do get severe at times, but after my nightmare experience with with Lexapro I'm a bit tentitive about putting meds in my body.
Avatar m tn at first i thought it was a mixture of my anxiety and my obsessive smoking habit but i learned that all it was was my over awareness of what i thought was going on. Your not crazy but your brain is sending the wrong signals through your body. im not sure how to tell you to get it to stop except try not to think about it and concentrate on something else. This is actually how i started having my panic attack.
Avatar n tn Can someone please tell me if I am currently taking 30 mg Oxycontin 2 times a day is it possible to wean myself off this medication without any of the terrible side effects that come with it? Can I slowly taper off without the depression and the willies and everything else that goes along with it? I have been on this medication for 8 months. I take it for Fibro. I have had it with the running out too soon. Vacations ruined because I have run out.
Avatar m tn Anyway these medications induced some kind of psychotic attack, and I eventually stopped taking all of them. I never went for the EMG or the spinal tap, as I've almost completely decided they're both a waste of time. Now I'm off everything, the last being Effexor 300 mg, which I assume I am still withdrawing from. I've noticed a lot of side effects have gone away, some are still with me but it's nothing like it was not too long ago.
