How long is clonazepam in your system? I took a 0.25 mg dose for anxiety 24 hrs ago. Today, I have severe allergies and would like nyquil to sleep.

How long is clonazepam in your system? I took a 0.25 mg dose for anxiety 24 hrs ago. Today, I have severe allergies and would like nyquil to sleep.

Taking meds together: I assume your question is if it is ok for you to take both clonazepam and benadryl (diphenhydramine) together since both of them make you drowsy. Clonazepam can be inside your system very long since it has a long half life, like a week to 10 days. However its action duration lasts for about 6-12 hours only. How much drowsiness you have when you take both medications depending on your tolerance. In general, it's ok. ...Read more

RX question: Can I take Klonopin 0.5 mg 3 x's a day & Astepro Nasal Spray (generic). 15% 2 sprays once a day for 7 days allergies? Internet scared me

Don't be scared: Astepro and klonopin can interact causing CNS depression and psychomotor impairment, but you are on low doses though, so it is unlikely, for allergic rhinitis astepro can be replaced by a steroid nasal spray, ask your doctor about it, he/she knows your case better and can advise you ...Read more

Can I take a Benadryl (diphenhydramine) if on 1mg Clonazepam a day? Having some allergies but don't want no respiratory or heart affects. Thanks

Maybe: These 2 drugs have additive effects when given together although not contraindicated. A better choice would be Allegra or Zyrtec rather than Benadryl (diphenhydramine). Hope that helps! ...Read more

I'm on Lexapro (escitalopram) and klonopin for 2 months... I also have allergies. I woke up with a swollen eye. What could cause this?

Swollen eye: If you've been on those 2 meds for 2 months, it'd be strange for it to cause a reaction all of a sudden now. Couple things can cause a swollen eye: allergies, trauma (a scratch), a stye, infection (pink eye or cellulitis). Concerning symptoms include significant discharge, pain, and blurry vision. Best of luck to you! ...Read more

Wife has bad chest cold. Coughing yellow phlegm. Sore from coughing, lack of sleep. Takes citalopram and clonazepam for panic attacks, zyrtec (cetirizine) for allergies. What to take now and when to get help.?

Symptomatic care: Most colds go away on their own and do not need medications, even with phlegm. Fluids, rest, tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain can all be helpful. Sometimes antihistamines like zyrtec can make getting secretions loose harder. Some folks feel vitamin c helps, and it likely will not hurt, but no great studies exist. Zinc lozenges may have a role. Get help for worsening shortness of breath, fever, lasts 7-20 days. ...Read more

67 yr-old with years of monthly blackouts, with a history of PVC's, adrenal insufficiency and hypothyroidism, looking for a definitive diagnosis.....?

Multifactorial: There a several potential causes for the syncope in this lady. Of concern is that the episode on August 4th occurred without warning. This could be arrhythmic in origin. Although a Holter has been done the patient may need an Event Monitor and if this is negative an implantable monitor may be needed.

We need to make sure she has normal LV function by Echo etc as she does have a history of PVC's.

Vasodepressor syndrome needs to be also considered as she does have some features compatible with this. TTT would be reasonable.

Finally hypotension secondary to the endocrine problem needs to be considered. Perhaps she might need a vasoactive medication as she does have hypotension. ...Read more

Could be meds!: Are you taking venlafaxine and Lexapro (escitalopram) together or was Lexapro (escitalopram) stopped? Also check with your dr. The dose of venlafaxine and what time of day you take it. Sometimes adjusting the dose and time of day corrects the problem. Any history of seizures or sleep terrors/nightmares? Discuss a sleep study. Of course this all depends upon how frequent these occur and how disruptive to your life the sx are. ...Read more

My dad (50) is taking clonazepam 0.5 mg for anxiety for 20 years. Now it's not well effective. Please prescribe any other medicine for him?

Suggestions: Will need to talk to doctor where you are for prescription, but glad to make suggestions. Clonazepam is a benzodiazepine which leads to tolerance meaning dose needs to be increased for ongoing effect. 0.5 mg is a very low dose, but increasing dose is not the answer. Many alternatives: buspirone, paroxetine, citalopram, venlafaxine, duoxetine, just to name a few. ...Read more

Is lorazepam most similar to xanax (alprazolam)? I know duration is longer but is it the closest one in this class of drugs? Klonopin doesn't work

Xanax (alprazolam): Lorazepam is similar to Xanax (alprazolam) in that it has a short half life which means it seems to work faster but doesn't last as long, This makes these more addictive. Klonopin and Tranxene have a longer half life which takes longer to work but lasts much longer and is still addictive but less so. ...Read more

I am taking buprenorphine, however, I ran out 3 days ago. I used clonazepam to keep from relapse. I have a drug test in morning, should I tell my dr?

Yes you should tell.: Drug tests vary based on what test is being required by employer or others. Sometimes benzodiazepines will be tested for and it is best you provide a prescription for your medications prior to testing including both Buprenorphine and clonazepam.
Clonazepam may not be the best agent to prevent relapse if you are chronically on buprenorphine. ...Read more

Which medicines are appropriate to take to relieve nervousness caused by taking ciprofloxin hydrochloridre? Is clonazepam and selective seretonin reupt

While many medicines: May have anxiety and/or depression as a side effect, the first thing would be to be certain that that is the cause. If so, switching to a different medication would be my first choice, not to treat the side effects of one med with yet another. SSRI's take weeks to months to really kick in, so it depends on whether you are going to be on cipro (ciprofloxacin) for that long. Clonazepam would be better short-term. ...Read more

Try not to worry if you are being a responsible adult. If you're not..... Well, by 35 perhaps you need to start moving in that direction. Best! ...Read more
