Thanks for the query.

The tingling and irritation in the lips and throat may be due to the concentrated clonazepam drops. It should improve in a few hours. So do not panic.

Some people might experience symptoms of drowsiness, lack of co-ordination, unsteadiness and so on. If such symptoms develop, it is wise to see your meanwhile, I suggest you to drink plenty of fluids. It would help in proper metabolism. It will also flush the drug out of your system faster.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available for follow ups if you have any clarifications.
