I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Clonazepam 3 mg is high dose.
Although you do not have any side effects now, the longer you remain on high dose, the high the risk of side effects.
Mirapex also causesdrowsiness along with clonazepam.
Long term clonazepam use also can affect your memory.
It is better to gradually reduce the dose of clonazepam to 2 mg daily to avoid the risk of side effects.
Please discuss with your doctor before doing so.
In the past year I have not had any noticeable change in memory although I am told I would be the last to be aware of changes. It is advisable to continue with the drug in view of my past addiction to alcohol?
