Klonopin (Clonazepam) is a benzodiazepine. Clonazepam is used alone or in combination with other medications to treat certain seizure disorders (eg, akinetic, myoclonic, Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and absence seizures). It is also helpful in treating panic attacks. The medication works in the brain by decreasing abnormal electrical activity. The U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved clonazepam in 1975.

Klonopin is available as scored tablets containing 0.5 mg of clonazepam and unscored tablets containing 1 mg or 2 mg of clonazepam. Each tablet also contains magnesium stearate, lactose, corn starch, and microcrystalline cellulose.

Adults and children 10 years and older: 0.5 mg (3 times) per day. The maximum dose should not be more than 20 mg per day. Your doctor may adjust your dose.
