This is Dr. David

your fatigue during the day can be from the clonazepam or from you not getting proper rest at night time

many issues can cause poor sleep at night time and fatigue during the day.

being overeweight can increase risks for snoring and sleep apnea which can disrupt your sleep and cause you fatigue during the day

a sleep study can help look for this

thyroid problems like hyperthyroidism or low thyroid hormones can affect sleep and cause you not to sleep well

lack of exercise during the day can cause you to not sleep well at night time.

poor sleep hygiene, like TV or computers in your bedroom can affect your sleep.

all of these need to be looked into

taking naps during the day can cause you to not sleep well at night time and cause fatigue as well

let me know if you have questions.

Hello

This is not normal.

And clonazapam is not the correct medicine long term.

It also disrupts the sleep cycle.

It should be replaced at this point with a correct medicine SSRI.

Please click a positive rating.

I will give you correct answers.

Let me know if you have more.

So

This needs to be addressed immediately

Long term use of colonazapm is associated with sleep disorder, cognitive dysfunction, and alzheimers.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
