Were you looking for information about Clonazepam? Clonazepan is a common misspelling of clonazepam.
Clonazepam (Klonopin®), a part of a group of medications called benzodiazepines, is used to treat certain types of seizures and panic disorder. The medication works by affecting a certain brain chemical, which produces a naturally calming effect. As a result, this drug can have various effects on the body, such as reducing anxiety, causing sleepiness, and relaxing the muscles. The medication is currently available in brand-name and generic form.
Clonazepam is not suitable for everyone. A few of the conditions you should let your healthcare provider know about before taking the medication include depression, liver or kidney disease, or a history of alcohol or drug abuse. Although most people tolerate the medication well, side effects are possible. Some of the common side effects include behavior problems, drowsiness, and coordination problems.
