Jerseygirl...I have been on the same dose of klonopin for a year. At first it made me tired but not anymore so I know it's not my klonopin. And it happens about 30 min after I eat my hummus

You know the old joke, Josh: Doctor, doctor, it hurts when I do this!! Doctor: "Don't do that." Just 'joshing' :D

Hi Josh,

Here's a link for Klonopin side affects for info. This AskaPatient site is great for getting input from actual people taking drugs versus drug companies selling them.


Try doing a search of the forum on elimination diets. That is basically when you start out with just a few whole foods and then add one at a time for 3 or 4 days to see how it affects you. The idea is to build up a list of safe foods for your body. Elimination diets can be very helpful with finding food intolerances.

I gave up hummus for a couple years myself, and all beans too. I can now eat hummus and black beans in limited quantities after being off them for that time. I also react to nightshades, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers and eggplant. Grapes and soy are big triggers for me also. We all have to find out how our own bodies react to foods. Each of us may develop reactions to different foods.

Don't forget to look at any vitamins and meds and also drinks like coffee, tea etc that might affect your body. Those kitchen sink all-in-one multivitamin pills are risky IMHO, as they have so may ingredients it's hard to identify which might cause a reaction. It's better to get individual vitamin pills or limited combos.

Some starting the gluten-free diet tips for the first 6 months:

Get tested before starting the gluten-free diet.
Get your vitamin/mineral levels tested also.
Don't eat in restaurants
Eat only whole foods not processed foods.
Eat only food you cook yourself, think simple foods, not gourmet meals.
Take probiotics.
Take gluten-free vitamins.
Take digestive enzymes.
Avoid dairy.
Avoid sugars and starchy foods.
Avoid alcohol.

Sorry about the delay in replying.....sometimes I'd forget my head.....

Well, if you are sure it's not the Klonopin (and after taking it for a time, it can cause the rebound type symptoms I mentioned before--I have taken it. It is because of the tolerance it can cause), I think the reasonable thing to do would be to fine a sub for the legumes. I had problems with legumes and was off them completely for 5 years. I can now eat them in moderation.
