Klonopin is a brand name for Clonazepam, which is commonly used to treat anxiety, panic disorder, and seizure disorders in both adults and children. It was intended to help control epileptic seizures when it was first introduced to the market in 1975.
Klonopin, like additional Benzodiazepines, is a well-known nervous network (CNS) depressant that slows the mind by influencing GABA receptors. This, in turn, slows the respiratory and heart rates, potentially leading to a fatal overdose. Klonopin will also suppress seizure-inducing brain activity.
Benzos cause a wide range of side effects in different people. Its effects also make it useful in the fight against anxiety and panic attacks, but people who use it frequently find it difficult to relax or calm down without it.
