Klonopin

Postby rj45 on August 30th, 2004, 7:30 am

Hi Everyone,

I have been reading posts on klonopin, I have been on it for 2 weeks it helped the small twitches in my calves ,but while on the drug have developed larger twitches in other places. I have had one in my left forearm now for 5 days nonstop. Could it be the klonopin? I never had big twitches like that before the medication.

its most likely the BFS..although klonopin has muscle twitching as a side effect. how much do you take? if you take .05, that is a weak dose.. the more you take the less you twitch.. 2mgs usually kills off a hot spot nonstop twitch, for me anyway

Floater, I take .5 in the morning and .5 in the evening. Been on it for 15 days.I just got a call from my doc to see how I was doing and I told him I developed a nonstop hard twitch in my left forearm for 6 days running. he said he wanted another emg done in all my limbs.Said that my condition getting worse while on the klonopin caused him some concern.
Just when I was starting to accept it was bfs.He is concerend and now I am again! Oh well here we go again.
Floater, when you took the klonopin 2mg did it take the nonstop twitch away for good or just till the med wore off?
