klonopin and energy drinks

i need advice. I have not had a huge problem with anxiety for a long time. however, sometimes during the day i get extremely tired, with 6 kids i have to be able to keep up with them, therefore, i have taken 1 (.25mg) ephedrine pill and drank 2 Monster drinks. Well, of course, now I have anxiety. Is it safe to take a .5 mg of Klonopin?

sorry, let me elaborate. I took the pill at 5:30pm, drank the 2 drinks between 6:00pm and 7:30pm, now its 2:30 in the morning.

First I'd like to welcome you to the site

(2nd you posted in the wrong section, that is ok) - this is the 'board feedback section where you leave feedback how the board is running. No worries I'm sure a mod will move the thread to the right one.

Taking Klonopin with an energy drink won't effect the medication but you may find it causes a rapid heart rate and high blood pressure.

If you suffer from anxiety or panic attacks, you should avoid stimulants --including caffeine -- due to the risk of stimulants intensifying your feelings of anxiety.

I would try natural foods that give you energy or even supplemental stuff - Acetyl L-Carnitine I think it is , is known for boosting .

Good luck and take care

I'd take it. I'm up to 2 milligrams of Klonopin, and it looks like that might have to go up...

I take .5 of klonopin twice a day, and I absolutely always take it with redbull or coffee. It doesn't seem to cancel out the calming effect, but Klonopin makes me a tad bit drowsy so the energy drink alleviates this problem.
