Klonopin makes me hyper

It's supposed to be anti-anxiety, sort of like a downer, right? Well, it makes me all excited, happy go lucky while the stimulants (Vyvanse, Adderall) calm me down. Isn't this strange?

Re: Klonopin makes me hyper

Nah. Everyone's brain reacts in a different way. Stimulants may sometimes make me hyper. Not sure about anti-anxiety meds. Codeine makes me hyper when it should really knock me out. Well it made my sister all drowsy.

Re: Klonopin makes me hyper

Klonopin helps me to chill out. Different people can have a wide variety of responses to the same drug. Maybe you should ask your doc to put you on a different anti-anxiety med.

Re: Klonopin makes me hyper

Not unusual. A typical person might find amphetamines make them "hyper", and benzodiazapines calm them down.Your Prefrontal cortex doesnt work the same as a typical person. As a result, your limic system..emotional circutry probably runs a bit unregulated...because when your pre-frontal cortex/frontal lobes work to full capacity, they dampen the noise in your emotional circuts. When they don't fire up or stall out, your emotional circuts "OVER_STIMULATE" , resulting in depression or anxiety or both, or , as a form of resistance or self protection, you dis-motivate,
If you give benzo drugs to a depressed person, there is a risk of worsening symptoms.Like alcohol, these drugs can dis-inhibit a person...so they cannot control their responses to a situation.They may even become violent if sufficiently aroused in a negative way.
G.A.B.A. is the amino acid?neurotransmitter involved in alcohol and benzo-drugs. A person can take raw G.A.B.A. and feel like they took vallium...until they take to much, then they get a strange reverse effect and have a full blown panic attack.
Over simplified,...but perhaps you can put a picture together out of this...also...a person taking too many amphetamines or other stimulants may become obsessive/overfocused, moody, rigid. Benzodiazapines can scatter anyone!

Re: Klonopin makes me hyper

Klonapin seems to just make me kind of stupid..a little hyper, when I am not just being jello. Again..ineffective at responding.Strangely, sometimes sleepy, othertimes, insomnia,..a small dose of ADDERALL seems to fix it and ...ZZZZZZZZZZ!

Re: Klonopin makes me hyper

There is a seizure risk if you abruptly discontinue it after a long term usage...so be careful!

Re: Klonopin makes me hyper

I'm the same way with most benzos. Pretty much anything that's meant to sedate me gets me wired especially benedryl

Re: Klonopin makes me hyper

I'm rx'd Klonopin daily and it doesn't sedate me at all, it never really did actually, it relaxes me yet I still feel motivated and clear headed. Everyone reacts to these meds differently. And be careful if you take it everyday, never run out too early!

Re: Klonopin makes me hyper

That's ADHD for sure. Stimulants calm you, depressants excite you. I still get drowsy on klonopin but I'm definitely more talky and activated. Benedryl will keep me up for 48 hours and booze makes me pretty hyper between drinks 3-5.
