I am currently taking Klonopin(0.5mg) twice a day as needed and Lexapro (20mg). i always worry that i might forget if i took my Klonopin once already and take a 2nd one shortly after on accident. is that something i could overdose on and go to the hospital immediately if i realize what I’ve done?
I don't think you would have to worry if you accidentally took a second .5 mg of klonopin. It my cause you to be a little too sedated but it wouldn't be life threatening.
May I suggest a pill dispenser in which you, in advance, place all your morning medications for each day of the week and a second one where you place in advance all you pm medications for each day of the week? That way you won't have to worry about taking a second dose nor skipping a dose.
Take care for now and all the best.
There should be no problem if you accidently take (2) .5mg clonazepam as its still not a really high dose, you may feel a little more relaxed is all. I agree about getting a pill box though so you can keep track of what you took or didnt take its much easier.
I take a lot of different pills for several ailments. I love my “ pill reminder “ app. It’s very good and free.
You will be fine. Maybe a bit more drowsy, but that's it. Nothing to worry about!
It’s not likely, but be weary. Taking more than prescribed can lead to dependency, withdraw and a host of other problems that arise when you continue to accidentally take more.
