The Dangers of Klonopin Addiction

Klonopin is the brand name of clonazepam, which is an FDA-approved benzodiazepine that is usually prescribed to treat panic and seizure disorders. Also known as a sedative, Klonopin acts on GABA receptors and hits quickly so that the user feels a sense of calmness not long after using the drug. Because of its highly addictive qualities, Klonopin is usually prescribed to be used on a short-term basis, and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) classifies it as a Schedule IV drug.

Klonopin is also prescribed to treat the following conditions:

  • Sleep disorders
  • Vertigo
  • Anxiety
  • Muscle spasms

Because the pleasant effects of Klonopin set in rapidly and stay in your system for a longer period of time (close to three days), many people with drug addictions are drawn to the benzodiazepine, and as a result, Klonopin is often obtained and sold illegally. One study has found that prescriptions for all benzos, including Klonopin, quadrupled between 1999 and 2010, leading some to dub this as a “shadow epidemic” that has been overlooked because of the opioid crisis.

Other side effects associate with Klonopin include extreme drowsiness and dizziness. Besides its obvious potential for addiction, another danger associated with Klonopin is the risk of causing car accidents if the user gets behind the wheel while high and falls asleep.

Symptoms of Klonopin Overdose

Like with any drug addiction, Klonopin addiction increases a user’s chances of overdosing, which can lead to severe health consequences and possible death. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that benzos like Klonopin were involved in 17 percent of opioid overdose deaths between 1999 and 2006.

Anyone can overdose on Klonopin when they take increasingly large doses to achieve the same high after developing a tolerance, but the risk increases even more when users mix drugs. People with addictions will often mix Klonopin with alcohol and opioids to enhance their highs.

Some symptoms of a Klonopin overdose include:

  • Cold or clammy skin
  • Trouble breathing
  • Weak and rapid pulse
  • Extreme drowsiness
  • Coma
  • Confusion
  • Slow reflexes
