Klonopin Klonopin is a trade name for clonazepam, a highly potent anticonvulsant, muscle relaxant and anxiolytic benzodiazepine derivative. There are a number of clonazepam side effects, so it is prudent to know them, as well as the proper clonazepam dosage and other clonazepam inormation before taking this drug.

Default H.S. stude nabbed for giving classmate Klonopin

It seems that the problem of prescription drugs falling into the wrong hands is far from being solved, and the worse thing is that it starts at home.

A high school student in Portsmouth was fined and received a suspended jail sentence for giving a classmate Klonopin, a prescription drug.

Jenny Hall pleaded guilty to the reckless conduct charge. She gave the Klonopin to Robert Academy, a classmate. It was not known how Hall obtained the drug, but is presumed to have gotten it from home.

I personally think that she got off lightly. I do hope that she recognizes this and she changes. I am sure that she also abuses the drug.

I guess that even with increased awareness and educating parents about being more careful with how they keep prescription drugs in the house, or even administering these drugs on their children, prescription drug abuse is still a very prevalent problem. I just wish that parents guide their kids more and talk to them about the dangers of these drugs!

Well, the disheartening statistics is that 20% of high school students in the United States have admitted to abusing prescription drugs that are not for them to take. This is the latest data from the Center for Disease Control.

I came across CDC's study called the National Youth Risk Behavior Survey. What is more disheartening is that the 20% you speak of comes from a sample size of 16,000 teens. From that sample size alone, that translates to more than 3000 prescription drugs abusers!

I am concerned about this finding. Ritalin, Xanax and other prescription drugs are dispensed with prescription because these are highly dangerous drugs that must be taken with close monitoring. It is wrong to think that they are safer than street drugs, because they are not!

A lot of people now think that Klonopin and other prescription drugs are safe, but the reality is that they are not. Prescription drugs are the most abused forms of drugs and many people think they'd be ok, because a doctor prescribed it to them.

Perhaps a little education is important?
