Dear diana,

thank you for the information,

The klonopin is a benzodiazepine and cyclobenzaprine is a muscle relaxant.

The drug cyclobenzaprine may enhance the effect of CNS depressant which may make you feel such tired and discomfort.

The drug cyclobenzaprine may also cause the symptoms of insomnia as the side effect so you are unable to have such symptoms.It may also cause the allergy symptoms in some cases.

You should avoid taking the two drugs at a time.

Let me know if you have any doubt.

Thank you!
