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.

Yes it is. So use it with proper prescription and guidance from your doctor. This is also the reason why Klonopin is not given to people with a history of drug abuse.

Well some people do experience an increased frequency of seizures. They also have some changes in personality and disturbance in behavior. Some people develop some serious and psychologica and psychiatric side effects and may develop psychosis. Still others become incontinent, and develop liver damage.

Elderly people are also advised not to take Klonopin since it increase the risk of falling, and drug accumulation.

I find this alarming, because knowing how kids are with peer pressure and being cool, this could start a lot of kids into drugs. I do hope our schools have a better way of monitoring student activities!

Hmmmn.. children are said to develop behavioral disturbance with Klonopin too. In fact, it is not prescribed to people under 18!

Is this the story? Or is this another case?

Spencer teen faces drug distribution charge
Saturday, April 4, 2009
Police have released the name of a 15-year-old Spencer male who was charged last week with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

Collin J. Rezabek was transported to the police department, released to his parents and referred to juvenile court on suspicion of trying to sell prescription pills. He was taken into custody March 27 in the 800 block of East Third Street.

Investigators think the teenager had 13 pills of clonazepam, also called Klonopin, at the time of the arrest. Some of the pills were apparently acquired by other teenagers, but Spencer Police Chief Mark Lawson does not think they were consumed.

The names of juveniles are requested, for use in news coverage, when the incident involves the intent to supply illegal drugs to other teenagers.

Default More teens are abusing prescription drugs

This reminds me of a 2005 survey conducted by the Partnership for a Drug-Free America that found that more than 19% of American teens are now abusing prescription drugs as recreational drugs. The report said that the most abused drugs are Vicodin, oxycontin, Ritalin and Adderall, Xanax and valium.

Maybe it's because of the stigma associated with other recreational drugs like LSD, ecstasy, pot, steroids. Also prescription drugs are much easier to come by, since most of the time, they are just in the medicine cabinet used by some family member or they themselves to treat depression, anxiety and other conditions!
