Falling! Side effect of anxiety medication (clonazepam)?
Hi all ….. I don’t know if I told you all this, but for the passed year+ I’ve been taking ffalls…. big ones. The other night I did a flying leap across the living room floor, hit a little stand, then the TV stand, and landed on my right side, hard. I just laid there and cried. I finally got up laid on the sofa with my right cheek on an ice pad and fell asleep. When I woke up I looked at the Mayo site which lists all the meds and their side effects, and low and behold 2 of them did cause unsteadiness and falling.
So, when I talked to my Psych., he told me which one was most likely to be causing them ….. the Klonopin. So, instead of taking 1-1/2 in the AM, I just take 1, and see him in 3 weeks. Yesterday and today I’ve already noticed a difference. This would be wonderful if that was the answer.
