How long does 12mg of klonopin stay in your system I have a drugtest in a week?

How long does 12mg of klonopin stay in your system I have a drugtest in a week?

12 mg???: The more pressing concern is withdrawal (can even be fatal) if you've used this much Klonopin in a day. The half life of it is less than 24 hrs and it should not be detectable a week later. But again, i'm more concerned that you use so much of an addictive drug. Benzos are dangerous in the long term and are designed to provide short term relief only. Please see a doctor about this asap. ...Read more

How long will 1mg of klonopin stay in my system?

How long will 1mg of klonopin stay in my system?

About a day: Klonopin's clinical effects last about twelve hours, so it most likely is gone after about thirty six hours from your blood stream. If you are inquiring about this for drug tests, keep in mind that this is general information from my practice, and may not be correct for you or your situation. ...Read more

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

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

A few days: Klonopin 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.com/klonopin-drug/clinical-pharmacology.htm http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-info/drug-book/benzodiazepines.html ...Read more

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

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

About 4-7 days: Klonopin 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 in the urine is also based on the sensitivity and specificity of the test. Some tests for benzodiazepines do not show klonopin. There is really nothing you can do to "flush it" out. ...Read more

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

Klonopin: The elimination half-life of Klonopin 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 have been on klonopin for my gad for about 4 years, 2mg a day. How long will the withdrawals last? Or when is it out of my system?

I have been on klonopin for my gad for about 4 years, 2mg a day. How long will the withdrawals last? Or when is it out of my system?

Depends.: That dose is not very high but if you've taken that dose consistently for 4 years, you need to gradually cut the dose down over a period of a month and you may not have any withdrawal symptoms. If you have gad however, discontinuing the medication can bring back the symptoms of gad. ...Read more
