I've been taking Rivotril+ for 8 years. Half a year a doctor took it overnight and got Rilex* instead. The ambulance took me to the hospital one night. I got Rivotril back, but it doesn't give me the effect it used to be. I can reduce it so that it is not unbearable. Thanks


+ clonazepam

In March 2019 I replaced Rivotril (1.5mg) with Rilex (2.5mg), and I was hospitalized for two weeks with withdrawal symptoms. Rivotril was then restored
