What is the generic name for clonapine?

Clonazepam is the generic name of Klonapin. Clonazepam is in a catagory of drugs called benzodiazapines. The purpose of these medications is to depress the central nervous system which assists with reducing anxiety. Clonazepam lasts longer than other similar medications such as ativan (lorazepam) or valium (diazepam), and takes longer to clear out of your system.

Is bupropion a sedative for benzodiazepine?

No! Bupropion is generic Wellbutrin, an antidepressant. It is recommended for people who do not respond to the SSRI antidepressants but not for people with anxiety.Benzodiazepines include Valium (diazepam generic), Xanax (alprazolam generic), Ativan (lorazepam generic) and Klonopin (clonazepam generic). These are all controlled substances used to treat anxiety. They are excellent medications when correctly used but they are physically addictive. Be careful! Don't confuse your meds!

Can you substitute clonipin safely for ativan while stopping Ativan?

Because Klonopin (generic name clonazepam) has a much higher halflife than Ativan (generic name lorazepam) at 18-50hrs compared to 9-16hrs for lorazepam, there should be little risk. If you are taking clonazepam just to get off of lorazepam, you cannot simply stop the clonazepam once you are off the lorazepam. Both drugs are benzodiazepines and while they can be fairly interchangable, your body will still have tolerance to them, and suddenly stopping high doses of them will result in restlessness, tremors, and potentially seizures. Benzodiazepine withdrawal is not a pleasant experience, you should consult your doctor about substituting the lorazepam with something like clonazepam or diazepam and have a schedule for tapering down the dosage. SHORT ANSWER: Yes, but then you will have to continue taking the clonazepam instead.

How do you quit Klonopin or its generic form clonazepam?

Gradual tapering is the safest way. Cutting down by 0.5 mg every week or two greatly minimizes the risk of any concerning withdrawal symptoms. (On the other hand, abrupt discontinuation of high-dose clonazepam can precipitate seizures.) Regarding any individual situation, it is recommended to consult first with the prescribing physician.

What are the disadvantage of generators?

generic medicine often has added "filler" type ingredients that are unnecessary and can cause minor issues. If you compare the ingredients of a non generic and generic there will be added ingredients in the generic. Generics are often produced out of the country where there is less regulation and so the quality control is not as good.
