My husband has been hospitalized on and off for the past month for anxiety and depression. He has been diagnosed bipolar and has been put on klonopin, lithium, zyprexa, prozac and ativan. The most consistent drug he has been on has been the klonopin. Since he has been hospitalized, his moods have become erratic, worse than I have even seen. I understand that being bipolar, this can happen, but I am convinced that he is experiencing a side effect of Klonopin. He has a history of not tolerating meds very well and none of his doctors are willing to look at klonopin as a problem. Is this just a figment of my imagination, or is it possible that klonopin could induce "manic" behavior?
