Klonapin or Rivotril as we in Canada call it is used as an anti-epileptic and ,when used prophylactically,also prevents the occurence of Panic Attacks. The active ingredient is Clonazepam which is a "cousin" drug to Valium(diazepam) and many other Benzodiazepines. The daily dose widely varies from 0.5 Mgs'-20 Mgs'/Day. To answer your question:Yes, Klonapin may cause daytime drowsiness at the beginning of treatment but this is usually dose related.If you feel that it is impairing your ability to function to the point of injuring yourself or others;I would advise that you speak with your Doctor Re:Dosage adjustment.Good Luck

Why can't you take grapefruit juice with xanax?

Grapefruit juice acts as a potentiator when it comes to xanax. In other words, when the two are mixed, the xanax will hit you harder and much quicker than it would as prescribed by your doctor. So if you were prescribed xanax as a remedy for anxiety or panic attacks, it would probably just knock you out instead, especially since xanax already has a big "drowsy" side effect to it.
