Choking on vomit!: Something is quite wrong. Leave a message for your doc and the. Head straight to the ER. S/he may call while you are in route. Klonopin (clonazepam) is a respiratory depressant. It does sound like while you vomited & did cough up, this protecting ur airway, aspiration risk is hi and dangerous. Bowel movement in "sleep" could indicate anything from over sedation, to seizure, to GI problem. Need work to be safe!
