I take 4 clonazepam 2mg. daily and it helps me very well. But I know someone that needs to be on it do to his anxiety and anger problems.
I see a lot of different answers and reasons why the question was asked as well. I have been taking 2mg 3 times a day for years due to post traumatic stress syndrome and this works well for me. I however don't take them as prescribed because they make me drowsy. I just take 1 when I feel a panic attack coming on by putting it under my tongue where it will dissolve quickly and I am fine in few mins if it gets me at all is when I am asleep. Now if you suddenly quit taking them and can't get em for insurance reasoning or divorce or whatever. I was taken off of them once and I lost 35 pounds and had night sweets every night for a month then just a night here and there for another month then it passed. I was off a clean which felt good to be free of anything we must take ya know. I however started having even worse PTSD and have had to be back on them and probably will for life.
I am 6ft 5 and weigh almost 280 so not like your a sissy or anything if you need the meds like I do take it, but if you don't by all means try your best to not take these drugs. Just someone who really cares. I am new here and best wishes to each of you
The half life of klonopin is 30-40 hours and it takes 5 half lives to be eliminated from your system. Multiply 40x5=200. 200/24= 8.333. So the correct answer to your question would be it takes at least 8-10 days for it to be out of your system. It's a benzo with a longer half life like Valium and Librium.
I don't know the answer, this is my question.
I took benzos for weeks but drank so much beer and fluids that when I went to rehab I didn't even drop for benzos. Everybody metabolizes differently.
I read this thread with suspicion. If you have been prescribed Klonopin, then concerns make no sense, UNLESS whether employment testing, parole testing, or otherwise medical testing. People asking this question this way overtly express a concern about detection times -- clearly allied to an illicit motive. I am prescribed klonopin, freely divulge this in any relevant testing scenario, and am free to not worry. A legitimate reason to inquire about half life is reasonable concern about timing, accumulation, and avoiding habituation.
it was in my urine after i hadnt taken any for 3 weeks i was just tested and was surprised it was still in my urine
I take Klonopin randomly for headaches. It seems it's the only medicine that knocks out a migraine for me. I don't take Klonopin every day but I've taken 1mg this past Saturday, Sunday, and Tuesday. I have a doctors apt next week for blood work (not sure what the blood work is for) and I'm wondering if the Klonopin will show up in my system if I don't take another one until my apt. Does anyone know how long the medicine stays in your blood stream if you do not take it on a regular basis?
I have the same question, and any advice for the interim? What if you don't wean off?
I know it's an old thread but how're doing off of it ReitaErin?
