1 doctor agrees
In brief: Mostly supportive
While there is an "antidote" to the benzodiazepines called flumazenil, (clonazepam) this is not completely effective and is also very short-lived.
Typically, overdose is treated by providing respiratory support (possibly including intubation), as well as fluids and medications to keep up the blood pressure and heart rate, while waiting for the drug to wear off. Charcoal, dialysis, etc, tend to be unhelpful.
