Klonopin is a high-potency benzodiazepine, which is used for oral anticonvulsant or anti-panic treatment. It is highly effective for the treatment of panic disorder and/or seizures, caused by abnormal brain activity.

 

Klonopin possesses anticonvulsant and anti-panic properties, related to its ability to reduce brain activity. It helps to substantially reduce the frequency and intensity of panic attack or different types of seizures in epilepsy, including:

 

  • Absence seizures
  • Lennox-Gastaut syndrome
  • Akinetic and myoclonic seizures

 

Short-term use of Klonopin helps to alleviate or completely eliminate the symptoms of panic disorder, including sudden attacks of severe fear, increased sweating, chest discomfort, and mood swings.

 

This effective antiseizure and anti-panic drug has been manufactured by Genentech since 1975. Its active ingredient is Clonazepam. Klonopin is sold in two solid oral dosage forms: film-coated or orally disintegrating tablets.

 

This anticonvulsant/anti-panic drug is on the list of prescription drugs, yet you can buy Klonopin online without a prescription in some drugstores. In online pharmacies, you can order free delivery of this drug to the designated place.

 

Klonopin is not intended to treat panic disorder in patients younger than 18 years of age. However, it can be prescribed to children to control seizures in epilepsy. The child’s daily dose of this antiseizure agent is 0.01-0.05 mg.

 

  • In insufficient anticonvulsant action, the child dose of Klonopin can be increased to a maximum of 0.2 mg per day.
  • Children’s dose of Klonopin is recommended to be increased by a maximum of 0.5 mg once every three days.

 

The dosing schedule of this antiseizure/anti-panic drug for adults is selected individually, based on the type and intensity of the disease. Geriatric patients do not require an adjustment in Klonopin dose.

 

The initial daily dose of this anti-panic drug for panic disorder is 0.25 mg. In seizures attacks, it is recommended to take 1.5 mg of Klonopin per day, divided into three equal doses.

 

If there is insufficient anticonvulsant or anti-panic action, the dose can be increased by a maximum of 1 mg, not more often than once in 3 days. The maximum dose of Klonopin for adults is:

 

  • 1 mg – in panic disorder
  • 20 mg – in seizure disorder

 

Geriatric patients are recommended to use minimal doses of Klonopin at the beginning of the treatment for panic or seizure disorder. Before the oral anticonvulsant or anti-panic treatment, the elderly are advised to undergo kidney or liver function tests.

 

Sharp termination of oral anticonvulsant treatment can cause a relapse of seizures disorder. To avoid repeated seizures, it is recommended to gradually reduce the daily dose of Klonopin.

 

Patients with several types of seizures may require the use of additional anticonvulsants concomitantly with Klonopin. Combined oral anticonvulsant treatment helps reduce the risk of generalized tonic-clonic seizures.

 

When Klonopin is used together with alcohol, the likelihood of adverse reactions of this antiseizure/anti-panic drug increases. It is recommended to avoid consuming alcohol during the anticonvulsant or anti-panic therapy.

 

Klonopin can cause mild or moderate transient undesirable effects. Since it suppresses the brain activity, most often this drug can cause adverse events from the part of CNS, such as:

 

  • daytime drowsiness
  • behavior change
  • low mood and depression
  • impaired coordination of movements

 

Klonopin and opioid analgesics have a synergistic sedative effect. If there is a need to use these drugs together, they should be taken in minimal doses for a short time.

 

Klonopin is not recommended for use during the gestation period. If a woman gets pregnant while using this antiseizure/anti-panic drug, she should gradually reduce its dose, until a complete termination of the pharmacotherapy.

 

Pregnant women with seizure disorder may continue oral anticonvulsant treatment if the expected benefit of Klonopin exceeds the potential risks. Women should take minimal doses of this drug during the gestation period.

 

The results of several clinical trials prove a high safety profile of this drug. To learn more about its use, ask additional questions to the pharmacist during the purchase of Klonopin at the pharmacy.
