> I have never heard of this before (in regard's to Paul's situation). First of all, I thought that Klonopin was an antianxiety drug, not an antiepileptic.

Klonopin (clonazepam) has been used quite often as an anticonvulsant. Sometimes there is a tendency to “pidgeon-hole” drugs into categories without regard to other possible uses for them. For instance, I think it would be more accurate to say that Klonopin is a compound that exerts antianxiety effects as well as antiepileptic effects. It is probably used less often now as an antiepileptic with the advent of the newer drugs.

Somewhere floating around in my mushy memory is the notion that Klonopin may alter serotonin function to some degree. The drug is definitely unique among the benzodiazepines.
