Does Klonopin Have A Negative Effect On Alzheimer's Disease?
Yes klonopin effects alzheimer
Thank you for asking
I read your question and i understand your concern. Not just klonopin , all benzodiazepines like valium and xanax etc are not advised in people with alzheimer's tendencies because it aggravates alzheimer's disease by slowing down the mental process and causing confusion.
There was a whole study done by British Medical Journal which confirmed these connections . Here is the link if you are interested.
Apart from alzheimers In 2012, the XXXXXXX Geriatrics Society added benzodiazepines to their list of inappropriate medications for treating insomnia, agitation, or delirium. That decision was made primarily because common side-effects of benzodiazepines—confusion and clouded thinking—often have disastrous consequences, including falls, fractures, and auto accidents.
Nutshell no to any sedative not just klonopin would be wise . Talk to your neurologist for further management.
I hope it helps. Take good care of yourself and dont forget to close the discussion please.
