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! ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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 ...Read more

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.

Slowly and with care: Of the prescribing professional or other physician.

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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 ...Read more

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! ...Read more

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.

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?

This varies greatly: You can enjoy your morning brew with your klonopin (clonazepam). It is only occasional that caffeine makes a difference in anxiety disorders when someone is on klonopin (clonazepam). Some people are more sensitive than others about it. Those most likely prone to have trouble are those in acute period of panic or ptsd. Other anxiety disorders just don't seem to have the sensitivity that those do. Just don't interrupt sleep! ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Can you take Zoloft (sertraline) atarax and Klonopin together? I have from 1978 to 2009 if I were to start again what is best dose age level? Thank you

Better by an MD: Especially with multiple CNS drugs, atarax (hydroxyzine) develops tolerance after sometime, as well as clonazepam, both together aren't advisable and should be under medical suprvision, we cannot recommend dosage or prescribe medicines according to HealthTap policies, so better visit your primary doctor, good luck ...Read more

I get a bad headache every morning (that lasts all day) when I don't take a klonopin (clonazepam) the night before. Withdrawal? It's still there if I do, just less

See doctor: Headache may be separate problem from Klonopin (clonazepam) use. See pcp for eval of headaches/ proper diagnosis. Let your doc know all meds you take and any alcohol/drug/tobacco/caffeine use. Write down how long you've been on Klonopin (clonazepam) and why, also when headaches began.

I'm a very nervous flyer and I must take a flight soon. Best benzo to ease the fears? Ativan? Klonopin? Xanax (alprazolam)? And what dose? Want a 2nd opinion

Nervous Flyer: Any of the benzodiazepines will work, they all are anti anxiety agents. There is no best, it is the physicians experience and choice. Also the dose is experience and patient specific.

I have frequent insomnia. Only get 3-4 hours sleep a day. Dr gave me klonopin (clonazepam) to help. Can I take this occasionally? Any risk of serious side effects?

Klonopin (clonazepam) & sleep: With insomnia, it's very important to discover its cause. Sometimes this is related to sleep hygiene issues that can be addressed: http://tinyurl. Com/ltjeke3 sometimes the insomnia is part of depression, and a psychiatrist & psychologist can be the best help. Other times, sleep studies are needed. Klonopin (clonazepam) is habit forming, and can oversedate you. There are better meds for sleep if needed. ...Read more

Can I take advil cold and sinus with klonopin and lexapro (escitalopram)? What sinues medicine can I take can I get a list please? Can I also take ibuphrone with them?

Talk w/ Dr/druggist: The Advil IS ibuprofen. It's rare, but it can lead to bleeding w/ lexapro (escitalopram) in some folk. Watch for signs and call Dr immediately. It can also cause dizziness and fainting, so be careful and try to have someone near. The 1st two can also do that but if you've been ok so far - that's a good sign - just be careful. Ask your Dr for that list - for you overall case. ...Read more
