Concomitant use of CLONAZEPAM and opioids may result in profound sedation, respiratory depression, coma, and death.
A paradoxical increase in seizure activity or the appearance of new seizure types has occurred in a very few patients during treatment with clonazepam.
The abrupt withdrawal of clonazepam, particularly in those patients on long-term, high dose therapy, may precipitate status epilepticus. Therefore, as with any other anticonvulsant, gradual withdrawal is essential when discontinuing CLONAZEPAM.
Advise both patients and caregivers about the risks of respiratory depression and sedation when CLONAZEPAM is used with opioids.
Always consult your physician before using any medicine.
