Klonopin and Ativan
« on: August 28, 2014, 07:06:40 PM »
So some of you know I was prescribed klonopin since Ativan wasn't working for me anymore. But then I made the mistake of taking the klonopin in the morning and it just made me feel numb and I hated that since the anxiety itself was enough to deal with. I didn't want to deal with numbness either.

So I went back to taking Ativan and it was kinda working again, but what I'm wondering is: is it ok to take klonopin tonight even though I took Ativan last night? It won't effect me or anything will it?

Or should I take half of it? It's .5 mg btw.

That should be fine as Ativan has a short half-life, about 12-15 hours. Doing the reverse may be a little more problematic because the half-life of Klonopin is up to 40 hours, although it still wouldn't be physically harmful except by increasing the risk of accidents, falls, etc, a little. It is probably best to stick with one or the other.
