Klonopin
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

My son who is 20 just got put on Klonopin (he was already on Keppra & Vimpat) & I was just curious as to see who all has been on this particular drug & the outcome of it? Side effects seem really harsh?? He's in college so I'm concerned about sleepiness. Waiting on dr to come in & speak to us, but was wondering on your thoughts! Any & all feedback is appreciated! Thank you!

Cruises & Seizures?

Klonopin
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I’m sooooo sleepy and in a brain fog since taking Klonopin in addition to my Lamictal and Trileptal.
How long does it take for these side effects to go away. I feel like I’m walking through jello.

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

Oh, and by the way, since that time, I saw a new neurologist for spikes and waves on an ambulatory EEG I took a few months ago. About a week ago, I was prescribed Clobazam, Onfri. So, there is that.

Kolopin Side Effects
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Dr prescribed Klonopin in addition to my other two meds. I looked up the side effects to the Klonopin and it makes me a bit nervous. I realize not everyone will have all the effects, but i I am especially concerned about the drowsiness. Does anyone else take the drug and how does it work for you?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

Thank you for responding. I hope you find freedom soon. I hate you’ve had to struggle this way.
Hugs and prayers for you
