My client was prescribed clonzapam twice a day for one year. Her medication was stopped. 4 days later her urinalysis instant drug indicated the presence of the drug in her body. I believe this is completely reasonable as I believe the drug would not be out of her system completely within four days. Am I correct?
bmtaliaf; Yes you are right and I hope they tapped your client down before stopping the medication. ALL of the benzodiazepines have different half-life and clonazepam is one that stays in the system longer than like Xanax or valium and even trying to figure it out there are always people that should get the benefit of the doubt due to the way drugs are metabolised in there system and length of time they have been on them anyway Clonazepam a 1/2 life of 40 to 75 hours or an average of 50 hours for most people So if you would use that as a basis of most benzo's to be sure you would be looking at
10 to 15.6 days to be undetectable in most people's system.Please remember some may be a few days different due to the way their liver metabolism is and how long they have been on them..Chuck1957
