Clonazepam vs Lorazepam

Recommended Posts

I have been prescribed lorazepam for over a year now at 2 mg/day. I recently developed HPPD symptoms after taking fluoxetine for 9 days. These are mainly visual in nature but come with anxiety and depression.

My question is what is the rationale behind taking clonazepam versus other benzodiazapines? Is there a pharmacological superiority in its effects that help with some of the symptoms? I find the lorazepam helps with the anxiety and I'm grateful to have the script but if a similar type of drug can actually relieve some symptoms rather than just blanket them, that would be an improvement.

The reason I'm asking is because I am thinking of asking my psychiatrist to switch me over to clonazepam due to what I've read on this forum and across the Internet. It seems to help people and actually provide some relief from the constant visual distortions.

Thanks for your time and interest.
