How can I minimize the side effects of Onfi?

To avoid or minimize the potential side effects of Onfi (clobazam), an anti-seizure drug, take it exactly as directed by your doctor. Do not take more or less of the drug than you're prescribed or stop taking it without consulting your doctor. Tell him about all medications (prescription and nonprescription) and dietary and herbal supplements that you take, and about any medical conditions that you currently have or have had in the past, including problems with your liver, kidneys or lungs; mental health problems, especially depression, mood disorders or history of suicidal thoughts or actions.

Do not drink alcohol while taking Onfi, since it can increase the amount of drug in your system and worsen side effects.
