Alcohol: Has your physician recommended this? Depends how much alcohol you are deciding to drink? Uncommon side effect of stopping Clonazepam is you can get withdrawal seizures if you drink your physician recommended amounts you should be fine in general.

Clonazepam & Alcohol: The half-life of Clonazepam is 19-60 hours, depending on the state of your liver and other health. This means you still have clonazapam in you, although less than 48 hours ago. It takes 4-6 days for all the Clonazepam to be eliminated from your system, assuming you don't take any further doses. I suggest not drinking alcohol with this medication at all. Please discuss with your doctor.
