Hello, I have been taking 2 mg twice daily of clonazepam for anxiety since near death from a resistant staph infection 8 years ago. I am 800 miles away and more than six months from my prescribing doctor and was offered 50 mg vistaril or 25 mg of elavil as a substitute by a local physician who refuses to prescribe clonazepam. It has been several days and I am feeling quite ill. What can I expect from either of these medications? How does the treatment compare to clonazepam?

I was prescribed .5 mg (.25 morning and night) clonazepam for muscle spasms in my neck. I took this dosage for 3 weeks and felt too tired all the time. I decided to stop taking them with very little tapering. For the next 2 weeks I felt horrible. Had many of the withdrawal symptoms listed on the websites I looked at. 2 days ago I phoned my brother-in-law who is a physician and advised me to start taking the clonazepam - .25 at bedtime for 7 days, then .25 at bedtime on Mon., Wed., and Friday, and then the 3rd week take as I feel needed. Does this sound like a workable taper? I am so afraid of feeling so awful again. Please advise.

hello an adult ingested a very high dose of clonazepam (thirty something tablets) I don t know the concentration so I m guessing it ranges from 15-60 mg since there are two concentrations of the drug 0.5 and 2 mg.. they went to the poison control center after 16 hours or more.. they took no reaction they just told them that if the person passes urine he ll be fine...now two or three days have passed and the person s urine was bloody and they called mom since she is a pharmacist but I don t think there is anything she can do after all that time had passed... sorry I don t know the exact details cause I didn t take the call personally.. the awareness here is very low.. can you tell me any advice cause I know it is a very serious matter and apparently the poison control center is not very competent ..
