Sammy, I'm a white 45 male; just wanted to agree on that Klonopin remark. When I was 21 I had my second kidney transplant which was a BAD issue all together, at any rate the hospital did not include my medications taken at home after my surgery. I went thru the worst hallucinations and jerking and seizures you could ever possibly imagine. This went on for almost 3 1/2 weeks before we decided to have me taken OUT of the hospital and relocated before they ended up taking my life. Then the whole staff of paychology including the chief of psychiatry cane in my room to see what they could do, Finallu. During one of my few moments of clarity the C.O.F after blaming me if talking "drugs" prior to my transplant listened to my word of telling him the meds I was on before being admitted. After asking when was the last time I had received my Klonopin and me not knowing, he then reviewed the charts, and didn't see me receiving this med once. He stormed out of the room of about 9 docs and came back in with two Klonopin; for the first time in almost 4 weeks and after three surgeries the first 72 hours I was hospitalized, I was sleeping like a baby, for about 49 hours with NO MORE hallucinations, or seizures or jerking! I finally got out of there without a kidney since that kidney was supposed to go to another man named the same as I in a different city! I do take Xanax and probably always will. The half life on Klonopin is much different hence one if its dangers, Nevwr Ever stop this drug cold! I've been on dialysis 25 1/2 years now and suffered from intense skin cancers, but have fought and done all I can do to live a normal as possible life, working full time except when I'm in yet another surgery, over 32 general anesthetic procedures since 1987. I was the youngest boy-man to ever be on the USA soccer team ready to play in the Korea 1988 Olympics. What a change in life.....
All the Best,

i have been taking clonzepam and trazedone and my speech is a very hoarse voice, I am wondering if if my speech problem is from these drugs's side effects.
TwoDimes on Apr, 15, 2012:
Upon occasion, I, too, have become hoarse and from the use of Klonopin. I was VERY hoarse when I tried to cold turkey off of 4mgs of Klonopin. I am now down to 1.5mgs per day and, still, (as I said, upon occasion, I become hoarse. I am sure that the use of Klonopin is the causative factor. - TwoDimes -

Omigosh, never cold turkey clonopin, esp that high of a dose. My dad had a major seizure and hallucinations doing so.

I suffer from Hypothyroidism, High Cholesterol & Cancer survivor because of Zyprexa use and previously being prescribed Carbamezapine causing Thyroid damage. My best advice to you if you don't want Hypothyroidism is have regular blood tests, Thyroid damage can be undetected for up to 5 years with no symptoms found on regular blood tests prematurally. Make sure you buy iodised salt to use on food when eating this will help reduce your risk of getting Hypothyroidism. two signs of Hypothyriodism which the Carbamezapine & Zyprexa medication boxes labels wont tell you is if your face becomes puffed up, red or sun sensitive while taking these medications this is a sign of Hypothyroidism. It wont be found on your blood test but later on it could appear out of the blue. The other sign to look for is baldness or hair loss on your head, this is another symptom. I hope these comments will help you. You have to weight up the benefits and negatives taking medications if you decide to take these medicines or not. It depends on how you cope with the drug side effects.

From this study (1 year ago):
June 2000-Dec 2004 Wellbutrin (200 mg)
Dec 2004-Wellbutrin increased to 300mg; Lamictal (200mg added); Lexapro (15mg?) added
200? Lexapro discontinued; Wellbutrin increased to 400mg
I was never once told of Wellbutrin's association with onset of anger
2009 Sept Major depressive incident: huysterectomy, no job, grief over mother's death; landed in hospital; they thought I was bipolar (not); taken off Wellbutrin (400mg) & Lamictal (200mg) suddenly; put on Abilify but i didn't like associated insomnia. Changed to Lithium and I have a horrible reaction: nervous twitches, inability to concentrate, and a desperation to act on suicidal thoughts. Landed in psych ward
2010 January taken off Lithium, put back on Wellbutrin and Lamictal. Added Klonopin. Never once told of Klonopin's addictive qualities. It took me one year to get off of it.
2012 January added Zoloft 200mg; began slow reduction of Wellbutrin--no negative side effects; perhaps calmer, although I do not currently have as many stress triggers for anger as I had previously
2012 Feb 3 days missed klonopin--horrible side effects
2012 May? began slow reduction of Klonopin--horrible side effects lasting until January 2013
2012 December finished slow withdrawal of lamictal (no side effects)
January 2013 finished Klonopin; fairly serious anxiety/depression; taken off Wellbutrin
February 2013 finished Wellbutrin
February: currently taking 200mg daily zoloft & 5mg daily Ambien
From this study (3 years ago):
I started taking the Junel FE 1/20 around the first of May to stop my menstrual cycles and severe cramping. I have never taken any sort of hormone/birth control pills before. First month had extremely painful cycle and stayed on the active pills. 15 days later and continuing - everyday around 3pm till about 8pm I have moderate cramping and bleeding. I am wondering if the medications are causing this reaction or is this normal getting started on birth control pills?
