Long story short, i got perscribed some klonopin, no refills...

and before i go one, ima athlete, i like to run, work out and play basketball and i would do it all day if it wasnt for depression...

this may be a stupid question...but will my energy decrease from klonopin while taking it, and will this ever go away??

or...

should i just not take it unless im at work so i can still be energetic...

and...

are they're any other athletes who have delt with this...

i've tried everything, i worked out so much and my anxiety was still so overwealming and my suicidel thoughts were out of control...

ide just like to know if any other athletes have dealt with this and found a way to make klonopin use and athletic activities coexist...

thanks for reading...

Yeah, it does. But after a while you'll gonna get used to it then it's not that tough anymore.

It also depends very much on the dose.

For a "benzo newbie" 3 x 2mg Klonopin is a knock out dose IMHO. If the "equivalency chart" doesn't lie that's about a bottle of Jack Daniels, how should you play basketball that drunk? ;)

Yeah you will be completely and utterly wasted if you take that much. What kind of stupid doctor would prescribe that much to a non-tolerant person?

one doctor who thinks "toughing" it out is the way to live. I mean I only had 4mg at the most and was already exhausted to work out at a gym.

yea this drugs crazy...

its not like im that knew to it...thats why i said "a long story short"...

ive been a drug addict, marijuana, and alcoholic sense my beautiful family of lunatics...and my physc knew this...

im also 6'5, 190...which really isnt that much weight, but it is kindof tall...but i break them in half and take them, unless i want to pass out...

my knee has been hurting, i think thats why i cant jump either, and i havent shot a basketball in a week and that does do damage when you play every day...

im starting to learn that i cant have it all or nothing, i can have some of it and be happy =), or try to be happy...

thats for the replies...
