Hi everyone,
I want to share this news with anyone that is suffering with digital ulcers. I can
not remember when the last time was that I did not have at least one. years. About 2 months ago my Rheumatologist gave me a rx for clonazepam which was prescribed to help me sleep. During the time I have been taking it, my ulcers healed and no new ones. I can't remember being able to use my hands without a painful ulcer, and it's amazing the habits I notice I have picked up to protect my fingers that I'm not doing now, such as I can unlatch my seatbelt normally, using my right index finger! I didn't make the connection until I read one of the studies posted on this site. I know this drug is habit forming and I really don't care. :) It helps me sleep, it helps my fingers. Oh, and I've tried it all. Viagra, ace inhibitors (gave me migraine, ) beta blockers, nitro cream, niacin. Anyway, if this could help someone else it is my great hope!
Blessings to all,

That's marvelous news!!!!! As we've always said - what works for one may not work for another and vice versa. I'm so glad you found something that works for you in so many ways. Enjoy being able to doing some of the simple things in life again.

Thanks for sharing the news.

Big Hugs,

Hi Dianna ,

That is very interesting to know. Your's is the generic form of Klonopin which is a seizure med that we discussed for my son. Glad you found some relief with the ulcers.

Take care, Everyone.
