Don't take klonipin while drinking alcohol.
Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor service. I read your query and here is my advice.
It is absolutely not advisable you take klonipin while you drink alcohol because you are at higher risk of side effects such as drowsiness, unusual behavior, problems with coordination, memory problems, and dizziness.
Also some more serious side effects can happen include the slowing of the heart, the slowing of the breathing rate, having difficulty breathing, passing out, and death.
There is not an exact time when alcohol is cleared by your system because it depends on dosage but a mean time it can be 24 hours that your system may be cleaned.
Klonopin is not to be taken even in very small amounts of alcohol intake such cough syrups.
If you experience any symptoms I mentioned earlier you should go to ER.
Hope, ope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
