My dr recently switched me from ativan to klonopin (clonazepam) for anxiety. I have to take a red eye this week and would prefer to use ativan (more sedating). How long do I have to wait after taking the klonopin (clonazepam) before that would be ok?

In brief: About 6 hrs

Klonopin (clonazepam) is usually taken twice a day so just substitute Ativan for the second dose.
