Can clonazepam help me with falling asleep Will it make me

Can clonazepam help me with falling asleep? Will it make me fat?

Hello,

Klonapin can help relax one and help lead to sleep. There is a klonapin wafer that works much quicker. Have you tried Sonata?. In addition many Drs. use an older antidepressant that can only be taken at night because it is so sedating. It is called Trazadone. You might wish to talk to you MD about these suggestions. The OTC drug Melatonin is very sedating but causes many people to have hangovers. I would be very careful about over the counter drugs at age 76. Good luck.

Thank you for your kind reply. As stated in my question to you, I have already tried Sonata, which I will be happy to try again, based on your suggestion. However, you didn't address the second part of my question: which ones will make me fat?

Hello,

 

Sorry,

According to the research Sonata and to a lesser degree Ambien have associated with weight gain. That doesn't mean it will make you gain weight although it has that effect on some.There has been some rare reporting of weigh gain with Lunestra. Sorry I missed that part of the question.
