Eat citrus fruit and juice

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for using healthcare magic. I, Dr Abhishek Kapoor, would help you in this query.

Elimination half-life of clonazepam is 18–50 hours and a drug needs five half life to come out of body completely. That's mean, it would take at least 7 to 10 days to come out of body. In your case, chance of getting positive urine test is high due to longer half life. Foods that acidify the urine like juice, lemon, citrus fruit like orange etc can lead to faster absorption and elimination of clonazepam.

In case, you need further help, you can ask.

I keep feeling my heart beat multiple times, too fast. It only happens for a minute or so, then it comes back again. And it usually leaves my out of breath. I went to the doctor last month for anxiety attacks because i also have sharp pains in my wrist, fingers, toes, back, and just about everywhere else. Do you think my heart is beating to fast over anxiety? Or is it something else?

I'm 33 years old with low blood pressure every time I get it checked. The low blood pressure has been going on for years. I just thought I normally have low blood pressure. It was 92/50 las time it was checked. I am 5'2" 165lbs. I gained 15lbs with my pregnancy. My delivery lasted 33 hours and was very stressful. I have loridosis, back pain, heat sensations in my left leg, chest pain and shortness of breath. I just recently went to get checked out by the doctor about dizzy spells and my heart stopping and rapidly starting back. I was diagnosed with RBBB. I'm really scared, because I can feel that my heart is not working like it should. I have a lot of stress with family matters and I would say since I was 13 I've had ongoing high anxiety. I know that is not healthy. What would you say are the reasons that I have RBBB.

Every once in a while I can feel what I believe is a skipped, or extra heartbeat. I have no pain or dizziness or shortness of breath along with this. I do suffer from panic/anxiety and I am currently on Xanax for it. I am also on Levothyroxine for Hypothyroidism. My question is this: I have a trip to Cedar Point coming up in August and I want to know if I should be concerned about going on thrill rides and rollercoasters with my family.
