36 y/o female, mixed breeding (1/2 German, 1/4 American Salinian Tribe & 1/4 Mexican). I've been on clonazopam for about 3 months now and still have incontinence problems everyday to the point of having to wear incontinence pads everyday. The med works great for my panic disorder. This is the only side effect I have.

From this study (15 hours ago):
I have had on going depression for many years, but after two sister's homocides, I started having anxiety attacks, feelings of disconnect, very poor sleep, and then broke out in skin lesions, all over my arms, elbows, face, in my ears, and on my head. I have had several biopsies, and no one report comes back the same. My sleep has deteriorated, even further, since this all started. My sysmptoms started with muscle spasms, pain, headaches, and anxiety...then the sores...that won't go away. I am not causing the sores. They just appear, and take weeks, to months, to heal...I went to the U of M, and a doctor in dermatology wanted to prescribe Doxepin...I didn't understand the connection....and had just recently switched anti-depressants, from Cymbalta to Prozac, so I did not feel comfortable starting another anti-depressant, given my mental state...The anxiety I had was so bad, I could not make myself walk out my front door. I have never had anything like this happen to me...I have seen several different specialist's, and none of them agree on anything in partciular....I need some input here.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE GET A LAWYER,First I am so sorry for your loss. As a nurse this is malpractice and do it for his daughter,PLEASE, If your brother had a psychiatric issue he should have never had this combination of medications, never
From this study (6 days ago):
My brother was prescribed 190 pecocet 15, after first being prescribed 120 Vocoprophen, 90 klonipin, and 90 aderol in the month of march. On March 28 he was prescribed 190 percocet 30 mg, along with the same drugs mentioned above. On April 3rd, he took his nightly dose of all meds excluding aderol. On April 4th, he was not responding when tried to wake up. He was snoring loudly so his daughter left for work, she came home early that day to check on her dad and he was dead. The cause was respiratory failure. I feel li? This dr Yank in nashville should not be allowed to write pain meds anyway as he is a psychiatrist and not a pain doc. I need to understand this better and I hope someone can make me understand more about this.

You may be interested at these reviews (what is this?):
- Abilify causing incontinence
Abilify is making me have Little to no bladder control. Is better once I stopped taking but has not gone away 2 weeks later.
- Zoloft & klonipin created a horrible psychosis
Causes psychosis, bipolar anxiety and seizures. Violence happens on all psychiatric drugs. Curing psychosis and deafness took the complete abandonment of psychiatry.
- Spiriva caused me to swell up like a hippo.
My Doctor prescribed spiriva to help me breathe due to asthma/cold. I never smoked but my parents and friends were heavy smokers. I used the spiriva 3 times. Once a day for 3 days then I started swelling in my ankles and the swelling continued until my face, hands arms... basically I was so swollen ...
