Can Anyone Tell I’m Using Klonopin?

Can Anyone Tell I’m Using Klonopin?

When addicted to a drug like Klonopin it is almost impossible to keep your use a secret because of the drug’s overwhelming effects. Regardless of how hard the user may try to hide his or her addiction, it will eventually show through signs such as the following:

  • Physical changes such as weight loss/gain, poor hygiene, change in appetite, glassed over eyes (or bloodshot), slurred speech patterns and/or loss of coordination skills
  • Mental changes such as serious mood swings, anxiety, hyperactivity, poor attitude, violence and laziness
  • Behavioral changes such as lying, stealing, inability to keep a job or stay in school, losing friends, being unable to properly manage money or showing poor judgment

Klonopin Tolerance and Withdrawal Symptoms

When addicted to Klonopin, the user is no longer in control. The more often the drug is used, the more the body becomes used to it. Klonopin begins to lose its effectiveness, and to continue getting the desired high the user must take greater or more frequent amounts of the drug. Life comes to revolve around Klonopin, and the user must continue to take the drug to feel good and to avoid feeling bad as a result of withdrawal symptoms. Klonopin withdrawal symptoms are uncomfortable and can be dangerous if not monitored by experienced medical professionals. These symptoms may include the following:

  • Sweating
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Severe anxiety
  • Sleep disorders

While Klonopin abuse may be covered up in the beginning stages, it will progress until users depend fully on Klonopin and find themselves suffering the physical, mental, and behavioral changes involved with addiction. Each side effect can raise red flags to friends, family, coworkers and even strangers. Continuing to hide an addiction to a serious drug like Klonopin is not possible.
