Learn about warnings and precautions for the drug Klonopin (Clonazepam).
Pooled analyses of 199 placebo-controlled clinical trials (mono- and adjunctive therapy) of 11 different AEDs showed that patients randomized to one of the AEDs had approximay twice the risk (adjusted Relative Risk 1.8, 95% CI:1.2, 2.7) of suicidal thinking or behavior compared to patients randomized to placebo. In these trials, which had a median treatment duration of 12 weeks, the estimated incidence rate of suicidal behavior or ideation among 27,863 AED-treated patients was 0.43% compared to 0.24% among 16,029 placebo-treated patients, representing an increase of approximay one case of suicidal thinking or behavior for every 530 patients treated.

The good news is that you don't need to worry about your Klonopin, just don't stop taking it too quickly. It is probably doing you more good than you realize or you may need a higher dosage. The bad news is that people like me, who depend on narcotic medication for specific conditions (mine is migraines), get put through the wringer to maintain their meds (but I won't get started on that subject!).
Your body is not "addicted" to Klonopin, merely "dependant" on the medication. Dependancy means that your system is used to having the substance in your system, and when it isn't present, your system reacts to the lack of it.
Can someone please convince me that taking Klonopin is safe and that it will drastically improve my life? I have seen doctors conflict, some.
