FAQs

Q. Is Clampose an antidepressant? What is it used for?

Clampose is not an antidepressant and belongs to a group of medicines called benzodiazepine. It is used to treat severe anxiety (an emotional state where you may sweat, tremble, feel anxious and have a fast heartbeat) or agitation. It is also used to treat trembling, muscle spasm due to tetanus or poisoning, seizures or fits, confusional states or anxiety associated with alcohol withdrawal. It also helps in relaxing patients before minor operations or procedures.

Q. How long does it take for Clampose to start working?

It depends on what you are taking Clampose for. If you are taking it to treat anxiety, you should start feeling better within a few hours, but it may take a week or two before the full benefits become evident. Similarly, if you are taking it to relieve muscle spasm you may notice a difference after 15 minutes. Your muscles will start relaxing when you keep taking Clampose regularly for a few days.

Q. Does Clampose cause sleepiness? If yes, then should I stop driving while taking Clampose?

Yes, Clampose causes drowsiness very commonly. It also causes forgetfulness and affects muscular function which may adversely affect your ability to drive. Sometimes, drowsiness persists even on the following day. So, in case Clampose makes you sleepy and affects your alertness, you should avoid driving.

Q. Is it safe to take Clampose and alcohol together?

No, it is not at all recommended to take alcohol with Clampose since it can cause breathing problems, sleepiness and heart problems. Taking Clampose with alcohol may make you sleepy and your breathing may become so shallow that you may not wake up. This may even lead to death.

Q. Is Clampose addictive?

People taking Clampose in high doses or for a long term may become addicted to it. Also, people with a history of alcoholism and drug abuse are more likely to become addicted to Clampose. Therefore, Clampose should be taken for the shortest possible time and in the lowest effective dose.

Q. Can I stop taking Clampose if I start feeling better?

No, do not stop taking Clampose suddenly as you may experience withdrawal effects like depression, nervousness, difficulty in sleeping, irritability, sweating, upset stomach or diarrhea. Stopping it suddenly may even bring back the symptoms and make them harder to treat. You may also experience mood changes, anxiety, restlessness and changes in sleep patterns. These effects may occur even after taking low doses for a short period of time.

Q. For how long should I take Clampose?

The duration of treatment with Clampose is mainly as short as possible. Your doctor will evaluate you after 4 weeks of treatment in order to assess the need of continuation of treatment, especially if you do not have any symptoms. In general, the treatment does not last any longer than 8-12 weeks which includes the gradual reduction of dose process.

Q. Does Clampose have any effect on contraception?

Clampose does not affect the functioning of any type of contraception including the birth control pills and emergency contraception. Birth control pills can keep Clampose in your body for a long time and increase its effect. You can also experience bleeding in between your periods if you take Clampose and birth control pills together. But your contraceptive method will still work.

Q. Is it safe to take clozapine and Clampose together?

No, it is not recommended to take clozapine and Clampose together because the effects of both medicines may get added together. This can result in severe drop in blood pressure, breathing problems (respiratory depression) and can even stop your heart which can lead to death.

Q. Is Clampose safe to be used in elderly patients?

The dose in elderly is generally half of the dose recommended to young people. This is because Clampose causes muscle relaxation which can make the patient fall down, which may further lead to fractures.
