I need more information too, but am not sure enough research has been done to answer my question. I take half a .5 mg dose of clonazepam (Klonipin) at bedtime. A doctor had me start taking it at a very stressful time in my life. It's a small dose, but I can't get off it now, nor can several of my friends who are nurses. The more I taper down, the worse the withdrawal problems get. I have heart palps each day, and have stopped trying to get off the clonazepam because tapering off makes my heart problems worse and I can't sleep. Not good for someone in my seventies. My doctor says it's such a small dose that I should just keep taking it. But clonazepam is sedating. And friends of mine with arthritis say that CBD oil, when rubbed on sore joints makes them sleep very soundly. So that must be sedating too. One pharmacist warned me not to use both, since it could cause serious problems.
I have a lot of arthritis. My neck and knees are the worst. I also have hip bursitis if I don't sleep on my back all the time. I'm allergic to almost all antibiotics, so my rheumatologist says I probably won't ever be able to have knee replacements. My heart palps and antibiotic allergies are the reasons. The day may come when I have bone on bone arthritis in my knees, and I'll need something like CBD oil.
Does anyone know where I can find research on whether people can safely use small amounts of CBD oil if taking Clonazepam?
CBD seems to be quite helpful. Thanks
