Brief Answer:
Yes it is normal

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

It is normal to have a response in PTSD with clonazepam. Since it has some addiction potential most doctors try to cut down clonazepam fearing addiction and consequences.

In my opinion if you are responding well, have no side effects and have no tolerance (needing more dose over time to get same effects) there is no problem in continuing clonazepam.

I hope this answers you.
If you have more questions feel free to write back to me.
Thanks and regards.

I'm not telling any of my friends, but I took around 48mg of Clonazepam (I didn't count them, I was downing them in anger.) I also took about 15 to 25 OTC benadryl. This was two days ago. I wasn't trying to commit suiciide, but I couldn't get rid of the outrageous anxiety. I was mad at the medical industry for putting me on Klonopin and was having a "show them" moment by forcing me to stop using marijuana. I feel great today, but I have an enormous pain in my left abdomen? I don't want to add more bills to my bills. Do I need to go to the ER for this?
