Hi, My name is PATIENT I have been taking Oxetol 450 mg and Petril MD 0.25 from last 4 years. Earlier I used to take Oxetol 300 mg as per prescribed by Dr. Poddar (Varanasi) since 2008 and in 2012 he stopped my medicine. But as I stopped the medicine I got a fit after 2 days. And then he again started the same with 450 mg along Petril MD .25 as I also feel like I am falling down and sometime depression. But now the problem is, from last 9-10 months I feel like for a few minutes I lost my memory like I dont know how to write my name and what to speak and even to read some text. Also I get abnormal eye movement, hand movement. Kindly suggest me something that can help me regarding this issue.

Ya, both these medications are safe in hypertension. However, advice would be to discontinue clonazepam after few weeks to avoid risk of dependence
