Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 months ago):
I suffer from severe to moderate memory loss a friend told me it was due to klonopin It has been 7 years though since I suffered a concussion in a car accident. Been trying to get disability forever. I can't even handle a minimum wage job bc the steps I have to take r instantly out of my brain. I have a masters degree. So I don't think it's the concussion I think it's the meds. The muscle relaxant r brand new so we can't blame them. So could it be the klonopin
