Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • Became very lethargic. Could not recall simple things, such as own telephone number, or own doctor's name. Slept excessively while on this drug.
    Memory came back within several hours after taking medication. But am still keeping a watch out. Medication has now been stopped.

  • 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
