Sedated, maybe worse: 5.5 mg of Clonazepam is an overdose for almost anyone, & would likely result in deep sedation (unconsciousness) for a number of hours, & possibly respiratory depression. While not likely to be lethal, it could be. In an emergency room, the patient's stomach would be lavaged ("pumped") to remove undigested pills, an antidote given, & a psychiatrist would evaluate the apparent suicide attempt.

Don't know.: This is more than six times the recommended upper dose. It likely will not be fatal, but it is definitely not a good idea.
