Klonopin is a very very very long acting drug that will stay in your system fo a long time. The only thing that will cover it up is just not taking the drug. Bring your doctors script in, and you should be in the clear.
Mine did not show up when I took it and had a test to work at the hospital. I told them I was on it for sleep, but it does not stay in your system for a long time, and I drink a lot of water, so had to re-test the next day and not drink any water.
This question has baffled me all day. My drs office is kicking me out of the practice because my drug screen did not show the klonopin I take religiously. 5 mg a day. This makes the 3rd test from different doctors that did not show the klonopin in my system. I just don't understand how this can happen. I take my meds as prescribed. Why isn't it showing up. Really upset by this. I really like my doctor and don't want to switch. So if anyone knows how this could happen please tell me. I have to prove to my doctor his test was wrong. Help please. I swear on my sisters grave I take my meds correctly if I didn't I would have major anxiety and panic attacks. I'm at a total loss. Other than I see this is a very common problem with this drug :(
I would like to know myself. I took.2 klonopin 1mg and neex to.go to my doctor for refills amd Dont want to be kicked out program. Got the klonopon from a friend to helo me sleep... how long before they will be out my systems
Harvey111604, You're saying you graduated from med school last July? But you don't know how drugs are metabolized in the body? You do not come across as a medically trained person to me. Just my humble opinion.
If your jobs are testing with quickcups klonopin doesn't show up on any that I believe of, only lab tests
I am a diabetic& drink several gallons of water a day.. The Klonopin & a few other meds don't show due to this.. My Dr knows I'm taking them as she is my wife
Wow what is said makes no sense to me. A benzo is water soluble which breaks down in 3 days. Thats about the longest they r in ur system. Im not sure if they can differenciate the difference between benzos. If ur a doctor n u dont know this wow. Ur dumb
Clonazepam is secreted predominantly as a metabolite, 7-aminoclonazepam, in the urine. Many urine drug screens either do not detect this metabolite or are insensitive to it. Reported false negative rate is 25-30%.
My husband and I both have general anxiety disorder and we are both prescribed Klonopin and Xanax. Both of our doctors test us for like every drug known to man, including over the counter drugs and nicotine. I always show up positive for both Xanax and Klonopin. But my husband doesn't show up for Klonopin. He takes 1mg, 3x a day. I take 1mg 2x a day. His doctor said that Klonopin will not always show up in certain people. He didn't elaborate on why. At first his doctor thought he wasn't taking them and I guess thought he could be selling them. My husband said he could call him and my husband would bring in his Klonopin the next day to be counted so he could see he wasn't selling them or even abusing them. His doctor did it twice and then dismissed him as just one of those people that, for reasons unknown, doesn't show up for it.
I don't know if this is relevant, but my husband is overweight. He's 6 feet tall and weighs 290. I'm 5 foot 3 and weigh 135-140. I don't know if that has anything to do with his Klonopin not showing up. And actually when I think about it, his metabolism is slower than mine, so logically any drug will stay in his system for longer, so that means that his metabolism has nothing to do with Klonopin not showing up in his drug screens. It is odd.
So you may just be one of those people, for unknown reasons, that Klonopin doesn't show up in your urine test. Have they done a blood test to see if it shows up there? Just curious. I wish I had a better answer but it seems to be something most doctors don't understand either. Good luck
I have been prescribed klonopin, 1mg two times daily for the past 8 years. As per my Doctors orders I have a drug screen once every 2-3 months. Klonopin has never shown up in results even though I use as directed. My liver and kidney panels are within the normal reference range. No Doctors have been able to give me a reason why.
5 mg should be out of system in ,10 days
I've had this problem so many times this last time the doctor took me off 2mg 3 times a day to 1mg 3 times a day women doctors are the worst so i took one in front of her to prove a point. They sent it to the lab the first one was one that had the results on the jar i tried to tell her that this has happened at least five other times for some reason they don't always show up but she doesn't like prescribing them anyways she said so i said i just want to make an appointment with a real doctor not some glorified nurse.
I’ve been on clonazepam most of my adult life. I’m also on parole so I take drug screens regularly. clonazepam has NEVER shown on any of my drug tests. I would estimate I’ve had 15 screens over 3years and its never shown once. 2mg twice a day.
I have been on klonopin for 30 years and it just recently the past 6 months stopped showing up in my weekly screenings and my rehab wants to know why. I think they believe I'm selling them. I am so scared they are going to take me off. I heard from some workers at the rehab that it is because I am on 2 different water pills.
