Detailed Answer:
Hello Dr. Chintan solanki here.
Clonazepam level you mentionehd is in therapeutic range. Clonazepam therapeutic level range from 20 to 80 ng/ml.
Normal effect of clonazepam is cns depression and it causes sedation, drowsiness, giddiness and person may not be able to concentrate on work due to sedating effect and somnolance.However ot is not dangerous level, as time goes and drug cleared from the body, effects will go away.But it is risky to drive or work on machine with this level.
Effects of this medicine depends on for which indication it has been used.
If normal person takes 0.5 mg, it causes so much sedation.
But if person with panic disorder takes, it is going to reduce anxiety symptoms.
If you can tell me detail," for which purpose medicine was given and in what dosage schedule", I can tell you detail effects/signs.
I hope I have answered your query, late me know if still any info needed.
Thanks & Regards.
