  • From this study (13 months ago):

  • I have been on Klonopin for about 2 months, and over the last week I have started having severely intense itching on thighs, head, and upper back. And, it usually happens a few minutes after I take it. I feel the drug is helping in times of panic, but the severe itching and also headaches that I am starting to get more and more of are causing me to question if I should keep taking it. Any thoughts?
