    Tania, do you mean that you don't know if you had orthostatic hypertension while you are on Klonopin? So you are not sure if the klonopin helped it or not?

    Klonopin did help but that was for the neurotoxicity issues I had. (aweful constant on edge with like a ADHD kind of feel but one I couldnt physically act on.. it helped with all that neurotoxicity feel, I also had things like RLS and other neuro over stim symptoms I was taking it for)

    back when I was taking the Klonopin I thou wasnt aware I had the orthostatic hypertension (I thou may of had it thou but just been undiagnosed). So Im not aware if it helped hypertension too in my case or not

    I did know I had POTS back then and hence I do know the Klonopin did not help my POTS at all.

    neurotoxicity is probably just sympathetic excess.
