Klonopin/alcohol: I always advise against mixing the two, due to excess sedation & memory problems, as well as more intensified hangover symptoms the following morning.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.

I agree with not mixing, but if you don't drink excessively eg more than 2-4 drinks, skipping your klonopin might result in withdrawal symptoms. Klonopin lasts about 20 hours while alcohol only lasts about an hour or so.
