Mylan-Clonazepam
I have constant 24/7 shortness of breath, breathing in and not being able to get good breath.I just got to use this medication and hope to use it when my breathing is really bad. Is this a good medication for me? It was perscribed by my doctor as I asked him for something temporary to use when I feel my breathing is bad.

Clonazepam is in the family of benzodiazepines. The recommended way to use a benzo is to use it as needed. It produces it's relaxing effect by agonizing/modulating the GABAa receptor. This have significant effects on the central nervous system. As a result it is a hypnotic, sedative, anticonvulsant and muscle relaxant drug.

I think clonazepam is a good medication for you if you take it as needed but it is easy to become addicted to it so I would be careful and tell to my doctor right away if you start using it each day. Yes it's relaxing and sedative effects are good for anxiety and shortness of breath by providing a quick relaxing effect.
