What are the side effects of Clonazepam?

I am suffering from persistent genital arousal syndrome and am into it over three yrs. Right now I just hurt in the genital area. I have discovered clonazepam makes it stop. I take 1/2 a 5 milligram tablet around the clock oe 1/2 every 8 hrs. Are there any downsides to taking th is medication. I have seen bad things about it.

Prolonged use can cause side effects like dependence, excessive sleepiness and fatigue.
You can consult a neurologist before using Clomazepam for longer duration.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
