What is the best way to take Trazodone, and should I use it with the Klonopin (clonazepam) he also prescribed (but I have yet to fill)?

What is the best way to take Trazodone, and should I use it with the Klonopin (clonazepam) he also prescribed (but I have yet to fill)?

Best way w/ Rx (s): ALWAYS discuss these things when a Dr prescribes a drug. In this case there are warnings of risks for these being both used. You might be dizzy, confused and must avoid activities that might demand full attention (driving, etc). Call to ask if they are aware of the mix. Be careful - it's important. Best!

Call 911 now: You do not know for certain what she actually took, or what else she may take or do. A would-be suicide is not herself. Call the help people.

Beginning the tapering process of 3mg of klonopin (clonazepam)...dr wants me to cut. 5 every month.....I say 1/4 every 2 weeks...which would be best way to do It?

Either, but you go: To your doc for a reason and s/he knows you better than I, so my bias is to follow medical advice. In the meantime, do research on benzo withdrawal, paying attention to the time you have been on it, what for, expected rebound effects and how to counter them. Biggest cause of withdrawal failure is not knowing ahead of time what to expect, and not being able to deal with rebound in healthy ways.

How long will it take 1.5 mg of klonopin to get out of my blood?

How long will it take 1.5 mg of klonopin to get out of my blood?

Four days: The answer is four 1/2 lives... taken from a pharmacology website: “After 4 half-lives the amount of drug (6.25%) is considered to be negligible regarding its therapeutic effects”.

Given that Klonopin doesn’t have major active metabolites, and the ‘average ‘ one-day 1/2 life of Klonopin (though some texts cite 20-80 hours, there’s no way it’s anywhere near 80 hours in real-world practice

How long should it take to get 1mg klonopin (clonazepam) out of your system?

How long should it take to get 1mg klonopin (clonazepam) out of your system?

A few days: Klonopin (clonazepam) has a half life of 30-40 hours, so your body will eliminate half of the drug in about 2 days. It can take 5-7 half lives for a drug to be completely our of your system. The drug might still be detectable in your urine for up to 5 days. Http://www. Rxlist.

How long would 6mg of Klonopin (clonazepam) take to get out of your system? Is there anything you can do to elevate it faster?

How long would 6mg of Klonopin (clonazepam) take to get out of your system? Is there anything you can do to elevate it faster?

About 4-7 days: Klonopin (clonazepam) is a long acting benzodiazepine. It gets metabolized by the liver. It's clearance from the body depends on the condition of your liver and the presence of competing substances. Also, detection of klonopin (clonazepam) in the urine is also based on the sensitivity and specificity of the test. Some tests for benzodiazepines do not show klonopin (clonazepam). There is really nothing you can do to "flush it" out.

I have been on klonopin (clonazepam) for 30 yrs. I take 1mg 4x DAY. What is the best benzo to use to titrate off the klonopin (clonazepam). What dosage would be equivalent.

I have been on klonopin (clonazepam) for 30 yrs. I take 1mg 4x DAY. What is the best benzo to use to titrate off the klonopin (clonazepam). What dosage would be equivalent.

Not a DIY task: This is for doctors to deal with - it might even require in-patient mgmt! W/drawal can be very challenging and risky but it is also important to do. Your part of the work will be courage, patience and compliance. The results need to include high quality psychotherapy for learning skills to handle and avoid anxiety. I admire your choice to get this done! Find excellent help and do well!

What is the best way to phase out lorazepam? Klonopin (clonazepam) or valium?  

What is the best way to phase out lorazepam? Klonopin (clonazepam) or valium?  

Slowly and with care: Of the prescribing professional or other physician. Serious withdrawal symptoms can occur with too rapid withdrawal or withdrawal without medication coverage when any benzodiazepines are involved. Seizures are probably the most serious. It's not a good idea to do this on your own.

I need help this week I have to travel by the plane for 10 hours. How many mg of klonopin (clonazepam) should I take before I get on the plane?

Depends: Even 1/2 of 0.5 mg pill may be enough if you have not been taking it on a regular basis. If you have been taking regularly then 0.5-1 mg above your usual dose, but not more than 2 mg at one time. Try to contact prescribing doc, you can also discuss other meds for underlying anxiety so that Klonopin (clonazepam) is more effective in such acute situations.

How long will take if I took one klonopin (clonazepam) a 1mg lastnight (friday) take to get out my system? I have doctors appt wednesday was only one ever

How long will take if I took one klonopin (clonazepam) a 1mg lastnight (friday) take to get out my system? I have doctors appt wednesday was only one ever

Klonopin (clonazepam): The elimination half-life of Klonopin (clonazepam) is 18-50 hours. Since it takes 5 of these half-lives to eliminate the substance from your system, this would be 5 x 50 = 250 hours or a little more than 10 days at the latest. Faster metabolism could eliminate the medication closer to the shorter estimation point. We don't know about your own system, though. Best wishes.

I took 3 1mg klonopin (clonazepam) Thursday June 14, it's Friday the 15th, how long will it take to get out of my system. I've been drinking alot of water.

I took 3 1mg klonopin (clonazepam) Thursday June 14, it's Friday the 15th, how long will it take to get out of my system. I've been drinking alot of water.

Rule of thumb: % half-lives of many substances will clear you. This has a 6 hr half-life (time till 1/2 is gone) so 30 hrs should do it. Please don't take any pills w/o a valid medical reason - preferably w/ a Dr's Rx! Then you won't have this worry.

What is the best way to detox from 2 bottles of wine and 3mg of Klonopin (clonazepam) a day? Professional care is not an option.

What is the best way to detox from 2 bottles of wine and 3mg of Klonopin (clonazepam) a day? Professional care is not an option.

Slowly: I recommend going to 2 mg a day x a week then 1 mg a day x a week then 1/2 mg a day x a week then stop. Wine: go to one bottle a day x 4 days then 1/2 a bottle a day x 4 days then stop. Biggest risk is DTs or seizures. The klonopine will help prevent that, so it gets stopped later

I'm 40. husband and I want to have a 4th child. Too old? Also, I take 1 mg of Klonopin (clonazepam) day for anxiety. My high risk ob said its fine. Do you agree?

I'm 40. husband and I want to have a 4th child. Too old? Also, I take 1 mg of Klonopin (clonazepam) day for anxiety. My high risk ob said its fine. Do you agree?

Please clarify: Not sure if you mean your OB said it's ok to continue Klonopin (clonazepam) while trying to become pregnant and during the pregnancy or just while trying to conceive. I would defer to guidance of your OB as long as you trust and respect your doctor. That said, if you can manage on a lower dose through pregnancy with some relaxation strategies, that is worth trying. Best wishes for a healthy fourth child!

Take 150mg of zoloft, 30mg of Buspar (buspirone) pid. Have access to.05mg Ativan&1mg klonopin prn. For high anxiety days or help sleep. Use Zzzquil instead for sleep?

Take 150mg of zoloft, 30mg of Buspar (buspirone) pid. Have access to.05mg Ativan&1mg klonopin prn. For high anxiety days or help sleep. Use Zzzquil instead for sleep?

Medications interact: Zzzquil is Diphenhydramine 50 mg, an antihistamine. In combo with Zoloft, BusPar (buspirone), (buspirone) Ativan and/or Klonopin it may increase dizziness, drowsiness, difficulty concentrating. Zoloft and BusPar (buspirone) increase serotonin and rarely may cause serious serotonin syndrome in which case seek immediate medical attention. Sleep hygiene is best for sleep with meds as necessary, Work with prescriber, Best regards.

Does nausea cause anxiety I take ambrelosol and klonopin (clonazepam) daily when nauseusa I get bad anxiety?

Does nausea cause anxiety I take ambrelosol and klonopin (clonazepam) daily when nauseusa I get bad anxiety?

Yes: Anxiety presents in the presence of or anticipation of unpleasant events and stimuli. It is not surprising that anxiety increases when you feel nausea, or even when you are anticipate nausea. If this pattern is recurring, your body will condition/pair anxiety with nausea. Recommend discussing with your provider of this is experience is frequent as intensity of anxiety may increase over time.

I fainted today in a hospital when watching my son get bloodwork. They said bp was too low. Can I take my klonopin (clonazepam) tonight safely?

Better not: I'm not sure why are you taking klonopin (clonazepam) for? Anxiety or seizure disorder? Either way, please hold it and call your doctor, it can cause hypotension and further can lead to orthostatic hypotension. Your doctor would suggest an alternative medication for your case, also review the rest of your drugs you are on if you're on any, good luck

I can't get straight answers. I take klonopin, (clonazepam) yet I still enjoy coffee. Is this okay as they might work in different receptors; or do they fight?

I can't get straight answers. I take klonopin, (clonazepam) yet I still enjoy coffee. Is this okay as they might work in different receptors; or do they fight?

Receptors: Klonipin works on GABA receptor. It is agonist. Neurotransmitter GABA combines with receptor and slows the neuron and brings sleep ; sedation. Klonopin (clonazepam) works the same way. Caffeine works against Adenosine receptor. Adenosine, neurotransmitter, combines with receptor and slows down neuron which results sleep and sedation. Caffeine works opposite on Adenosine receptor. Hope it clarifies the issue.

Bad anxiety (which I get pretty much every day) I am on prescription 2mg ativan can I take another medication like klonopin (clonazepam)?

Bad anxiety (which I get pretty much every day) I am on prescription 2mg ativan can I take another medication like klonopin (clonazepam)?

Only 1 benzo: I wouldn't recommend taking more than 1 benzodiazepine at one time, unless your doctor is cross tapering off one and onto another. With 2 of these drugs, you risk more side effects like drowsiness, dizziness, and even amnesia. There are other medications which can help anxiety without causing tolerance like benzodiazepines do. Please discuss with your physician.
