Make sure you understand the proper dosing for klonopin. I took this drug for years assuming it works on an 'as needed' basis after switching from lorazepam. It's not meant to be taken that way. Also make sure you understand about dependency. You can't just quit klonopin cold turkey. I know they say that about most drugs... but this one is very tough... I'm weaning off it now. Much harder than quitting smoking!
Learn everything there is to know about any drug before you accept any new prescription.
