    I have been taking Klonopin for RLS and Doxepin small dose to have a night where I don't wake up until it's morning. I think it's been almost 2 weeks and I have much less pain, I use to take codeine #3 every night and I did sleep but not every time. I still was useing alot of Advil, which I have taken for years and the more I read about it causing anemia especially in Older people and often Gastric Bleeds, I am thrilled to not be taking them seldom, in fact I can't remember the last time I took any thing for pain. One of the things that I think has helped is the Klon and Dox. Happy as a clam. Love nancyb16 PS anyone else have this experience? Please share.

    And I wish that they worked that way for me but as I am one who has strange rections to medications I can't be choosy . With them I have not had a bad reaction so I am staying with them. I take them for depression and anxiety. Along with MANY other meds for pain . I sometime sfeel like I should have a share in the pharmacy because I have so many opills Rosemarie

    There is a study being conducted to see whether Klonopin disrupts the pain signals in the brain. It does seem to help with pain.

    I've been using Klonopin for a few months now and have found that not only do I have less pain, my attitude is better. I didn't realize how bad my anxiety attacks (stress!) were until I started on it. Then my dentist told me yesterday that I have very, overly developed "chewing muscles" from stress. Guess it was worse than I thought. :) I've tried many others..much more expensive with less relief. Haven't tried the Doxepin.

    Good luck..

    I just started Klonopin 5 days ago and I would say my pain is reduced 80%!! I had the best sleep last night in over a yr. I was going on broke up 4 hrs. And I run a datcare!! I take mag, zinc and b6 with it at night. Seems to help. Good luck to you!! Janana
