Clonazepam and Sex Drive

Clonazepam (Klonopin®) is a prescription medication approved for the treatment of panic disorder and certain types of epileptic seizures. A number of sexual side effects have been reported with the drug and sex drive changes appear to be a rare but possible problem.
In studies, people taking this medicine reported changes in sex drive (also known as libido), including an increased or decreased sex drive. These problems were rare, however, appearing in less than 1 percent of people taking clonazepam for the treatment of various conditions.
It is possible that clonazepam sexual side effects occur more frequently than reported in the clinical studies. Because people are embarrassed and hesitant to discuss sexual problems, it is usually assumed that sexual problems are actually more common than the studies suggest.
