Hello BigBakerMan. Yes, it can be. Clonazepam non generic Klonopin is a long acting benzodiazepine. It has a very long half life meaning it takes your body, a longer time to get rid of the drug, than say a Xanax might, which is a short lasting Benzodiazepine. Its generally taken two or three times per day. The maxiumn dose is about 25mg. Because the drug stays in your system for so long, taken more of it, say as an example thinking you have not yet taken your dose so you unintentionaly double up. You'd have a lot of Klonopin working through your liver. Add to that, possibly that your body has a severe reaction to the amount of Klonopin in your body, that could involve a drop in blood pressure, might be very dangerous. Best of wishes,pledge

Yes it is easy to overdose on ! I have a very dear friend that goes on "binges" . Takes @ seven or eight .5mg..then can't remember how many he took ..so he proceeds to take five or six more. Then I have the honor of watching him weave and sway, slur his speech, drool, become irrate over a cat hair on his shoe, and finally pass out in a chair snoring very loud..then quit breathing for seconds intermittedly ! Be careful.

No its not easy at all. Im not a health care provider. But im prescribed 6 mg a day and once took my whole months worth within a half hour. You do the math on the mg dose that was. Woke up the next day just feeling really out of it. If you dont believe the story, I really dont care

Three weeks ago I took over 1 1/2 bottle of clonazapram. It was over three full hand fulls. Within mins I remember getting very dizzy & going to lie down, in the hopes to never wake, but someone came over shortly after & I spent three days in ICU but cannot remember the first two days.

Jesus Christ people. Do you really think this is a good conversation to have on a HELP forum? I can't believe this thread wasn't removed before it had a chance to have any answers!! Everything written here is opinion and hearsay. BigBakerMan, if you feel your dose is too high, tell your doctor. Don't take as much. If you came here for other reasons, I think the whole thing should stop here.

I am a healthcare provider and nurse. I will let you all know that it is relatively easy to overdose on Klonopin. People on this forum who state to have taken copious amount of the drug, I am grateful that you are okay and still here with us. Klonopin has numerous properties that is used for and I believe I saw a comment of a man who took 100mg's of Valium and still lived. I'm not sure if you are aware that a 10mg Valium is the same equivalent as a 1mg Klonopin. So with your comment, you landed in the ER on roughly 10mg of Klonopin, technically. That's why we have an antidote for any type of benzodiazepine and it's called Flumanezil. I do not relish anyone taking any amount of medication unless medically prescribed but consider yourself lucky and thankful. Please all be safe and know that these medications can do you harm if not taken appropriately. For whomever feels that I am wrong or is in anger by my post, all I say is much love. Be grateful for your life and take care of the body you have. Keep it strong, keep your mind strong, and above all your soul strong.
