    For the past 4 years I've dealt with sleep paralysis atleast once every week. If you don't know what sleep paralysis is its where your brain is inbetween being asleep and waking up. You're paralyzed. Can't move anything, speak or blink. You also see hallucinations and hear things.

    Anyways, I have this happen once a week and when it does atleast 3 times that night. I always see frightening images such as dead people or shadowy figures walking across my room. I've done my research and Klonopin seems to be the most recommended medication for sleep paralysis and night terrors.

    I have ADHD, a mood disorder and an anxiety disorder. I have taken Klonopin for pleasure before but I feel like I really need it. Anyone else take it for the same reason? What were the results?
