Klonopin is long acting so I think it would work with your dose during the day as well.
Several types of antidepressants have virtually no side effects. The most common ones that I hear about are Wellbutrin, Xanax, and Klonopin.
Find a Therapist Advanced Search The individuals I see in my office have reported that Viagra is effective for SSRI-induced absence of orgasm, and I’ve known people of both genders who swear by the botanical preparation ginkgo biloba to reverse libido, arousal, and/or orgasm problems. One sex therapist colleague ls me that Viagra can be helpful for women as well, but no one I work with has directly reported this to me.
Wellbutrin is also infamous for causing insomnia and headaches, which tend to make most of us anxious, and it certainly doesn’t contribute to an enjoyable sexual connection! Wellbutrin is pharmacologically distinct from the SSRIs, as it enhances the neurotransmitter dopamine, which has the opposite effect on libido and orgasm of serotonin.
But abusing Klonopin can actually worsen anxiety and cause depression or too much of the drug out of a lack of understanding of its dangerous side effects.
Although lethal overdoses of Klonopin are rare, benzodiazepine overdose in general has become increasingly common in the US. According to the DAWN Report, benzodiazepines were second only to opioid pain relievers in the number of emergency cases involving pharmaceutical drug abuse in 2009.
Millions of Americans have used Klonopin safely to treat seizure disorders, anxiety disorders, neuromuscular pain or insomnia.
When in the past I have taken Klonopin, I noticed I was depressed the next day. But this is only a POTENTIAL side effect, and doesn't happen to most people.
I have dealt with depression for 2 1/2 years and have tried many medications, only two of which helped. I went through ECT treatment 3 months ago b/c.
