Benzodiazepines are a depressant drug that produces sedation, induces sleep, relieves anxiety, and prevents seizures. They affect the body by producing a calming and euphoric feeling, vivid or distributing dreams, amnesia, hostility, and irritability. If a person overdoses on Klonopin it can be fatal. Signs of an overdose are shallow respiration, clammy skin, dilated pupils, weak and rapid pulse, and coma.

As for the generic version of Klonopin, known as clonazepam, it can be a lot more difficult to distinguish between.

Therefore, depending on the pharmaceutical company that manufactures clonazepam, the pills can vary in their colors, shapes, and imprints.

Klonopin Addiction Treatment

Any person who has been taking benzodiazepines like Klonopin for longer than 3 to 4 weeks is likely to have withdrawal symptoms if they decide to stop using the drug abruptly. Withdrawal symptoms of Klonopin include headaches, palpitations, sweating, tremors, muscle pain, dizziness, light-headedness, visual disturbances, confusion, delusions, hallucinations, grand mal seizures, nausea, diarrhea, insomnia, depression, perceptual distortions, and feelings of unreality.

Abruptly quitting benzodiazepines like Klonopin after 1 to 6 months of use can result in life-threatening seizures. Therefore, treatment for Klonopin addiction will involve a slow taper or substituting the drug for one with a shorter half-life. Patients will be closely monitored by either a family physician or at a rehabilitation clinic to ensure their safety. Long-term abstinence rates after quitting the drug vary. They range from 25 percent at 12 months for people who suffered from a complicated dependence to 80 percent for older adults.

If you or a loved one is suffering from a Klonopin addiction, finding a high-quality rehabilitation center can help. A rehab clinic combines entry into a substance abuse treatment center with support, education, and lifestyle changes. Treatment can provide comfort through easing painful withdrawal symptoms as well as therapy to better understand your addiction. This can help a person get back to living a drug-free, healthier life.
