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
Actually benzodiazepines are difficult to overdose on. That is to say overdose leading to permanent harm. It is possible however to fall asleep for such a length of time that you cut off circulation to a limb or other body part - bad news. don't risk it.
Google LD50 Clonazepam - you will find out how difficult it is to OD fatally on it.
All I have to say is IT is easy... my husband did it twice. Last year he was in ICU and didn't they thought he wouldn't make it, and on November 11, 2013 he did it again and he did not make it, he passed away in his sleep!
Three weeks ago I took over 1 1/2 bottle of clonazepam. It was over three full hand fulls. Within minutes 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.
Hello all, 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.
Yes very possible , although k pins are the stronger benzodiapines
I've read some of the answers and frankly they're a bit Scary like people deliberately taking too many clonazepam.
I recently took an overdose of Klonopin I took about 60 milligrams I crashed my truck was flown to a Life Flight Center in Texas was there for 2 days and left still feeling the effects of the drugs they gave me there and the Klonopin I went on a high-speed police chase something I would never do but it happened I was trying to take my life this isn't the first time I've overdosed on Klonopin I have taken 60 two milligrams of Klonopin and not remember the whole week I have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder I have also took with this oxycodone a bottle of of bottle of Soma.. I'm still here I have no idea why I wasn't put under a 72-hour observation or psychiatric mental evaluation I do know for sure that overdosing on Klonopin that the effects can last for 5 days at least it is not my recommendation to take more than prescribed it does no good it only causes harm to people around you and that is my thought on the Klonopin subject...
