Klonopin is the brand name of the generic drug clonazepam, which is most often used for the prevention and control of seizures and the prevention of panic attacks related to panic disorder (a severe anxiety disorder). Klonopin is a benzodiazepine, meaning it is a prescription sedative (or central nervous system depressant) that has an extremely high potential for misuse. It works by calming the central nervous system and the brain, reducing symptoms associated with certain seizure disorders and anxiety — and when taken exactly as prescribed by a medical professional, can be extremely beneficial and effective. However, because all benzodiazepines are habit-forming, it is not uncommon for men and women to develop a physical and psychological dependence somewhat rapidly. Even when taking the medication exactly as prescribed a physical dependence on Klonopin can develop over time — in as little as two weeks, according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness. If you or someone you love has been suffering from Klonopin abuse, seeking professional treatment is necessary.
