Using other meds to potentiate Klonopin
Just thought everyone should know that an antacid drug called Tagamet (Cimetidine) just about doubles the potency of the drug. I would say the potentiation effect is 1mg:1.75mg
From what I have researched, most benzo's are potentiated by Cimetidine. A notable exception is Ativan.
Grapefruit juice also potentiates some benzo's, but not Klonopin.
The reason I researched this is because my doc had to push my appointment back and I will run out of pills and potentially go into withdrawal if I continue to take my usual amount.
I got this from wallgreens under a generic name of Cimetidine in case anyone is interested in trying it out.
What I did was take 400mg of Cimetidine about 30min before taking 1mg Klonopin and it feels as if I had taken almost 2mg of Klonopin which is my usual dose.
Apparently, the drug inhibits the production of some enzyme that breaks down certain benzo's. This means that it stays in your system even longer and it seems to also be somehow potentiated as well.
So far, this is a short list of drugs that I have found to potentiate certain benzos:
1) Grapefruit juice
There are legit reasons for wanting to potentiate benzo's. This is the purpose, not to tell people how to get "high" on their pills.
