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.

Regards
