  • From this study (10 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

  • From this study (5 years ago):

  • Do NOT agree to take this drug without a complete medical and pysychological history taking by the prescribing Pyschiatrist. Mine barely took 5 minutes to talk to me, so he had no CLUE about my history. I have a history of Dialysis and Heart Disease, both of which should have stopped him from prescibing Effexor, but he did anyway. Also, according to the Pysician's Desk Reference, this drug interacts negativly with EVERY other drug I was ALREADY taking, and he was aware of this. I was discharged from the unit barely 48 hrs after starting this meducation combination, drove across the country to get home on 4 days of no sleep. I have exhibited bizzare behavior that has frightened me, I cannot sleep for days at a time, my anxiety has gone thru the roof and currently completely bedridden due to SEVERE all over body pain of a nature that I have never experienced before. I literally cannot walk, or even turn over in bed and I this has continued for 7 days now. I am hystrerical with pain and no way to relieve it. It will be my life's mission to see that that doctor loses his lisence PERMANENTLY. He did not takethe time to take a complete history, and then never told me about the possible side effects or drug interactions, some of which are fatal.
