Is anyone else's dog on clorazepate after SM decompression surgery? Riley had surgery June 10th and has had balance issues both before and after the surgery - a little more exaggerated since the surgery. Her neurologist wants to put her on clorazepate for the dizziness issues. Does anyone have any experience with this drug? The list of side effects is kind of scary. Thanks,
Bev

No, haven't heard of this. I'd talk to your neurologist about your concerns. Perhaps one perspective is to keep in mind the list of possible side effects for aspirin is pretty scary too -- the issue is more how common are the side effects. Companies have to list all possible side effects so it looks more worrying than it actually is.
