Clonazepam (Klonopin) is an inexpensive drug used to treat certain types of seizures. It is also used to treat panic disorder. This drug is slightly more popular than comparable drugs.
Clonazepam is used alone or together with other medicines to treat certain seizure disorders (eg, Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, akinetic, myoclonic, and absence seizures). It is also used to treat panic disorder. Clonazepam is a benzodiazepine that works in the brain to prevent seizures. Benzodiazepines are central nervous system (CNS) depressants, which are medicines that slow down the nervous system.
This medicine is available only with your doctor’s prescription.
