I took a 2mg klonopin for the first time i would like to know if it would show up in a urine test in 5 days? I looked it up and i am getting alot of answers with diffrent tme frames. The most i am seeing is the 2mg klonopin will stay in my system for 3 days.. I would just like to know how long it will stay in my system.

Hello
It may be detected in urine for up to 3 days. However, a lot depends on body metabolism. The exact duration can not be guessed though.
Thanks.

I have Sjogren s disease (systemic) and I am having an especially bad flare right now. Last night while taking my night time meds, a 1 mg brand name Klonopin pill that was cut into a half got stuck in the back RIGHT side of my throat/ esophagus (can t really tell). I ve had many problems throughout my years with Sjogren s swallowing pills and them getting stuck, but this one went to the right side and didn t go very far down and just stayed there. I immediately had a HORRIBLE burning sensation there that spread to my right ear and nose . I drank liquids all night, tried everything I could, and woke up today with the same feeling plus a terrible headache like I ve never had before and pain in the right ear. It feels like it got stuck in a part of the throat where there s maybe a fold or somewhere that water/moisture doesn t get to (I create practically no moisture anyway). Could this happen and could it still be stuck there? I ve read where some medications can cause burns and injuries but they never list Klonopin. I m unsure whether to see a doctor or not, but right now I need some advice as it has been almost 24 hours and I am in excruciating pain - can barely swallow anything because of that one spot, and my ear is hurting very bad.

Hello. I was discharged today from a detox center after only 5 days for a 15 year 6mg a day Klonopin addiction, treated with only labrum. I always thought a slow taper was best. They sent me home with something called Keppra. Is this really safe????
I am a 49 year old male.

doctor1 MD

Hi,

Welcome to Healthcare Magic!

You are concerned about the time taken for detoxification. Had you been trying to detoxify on your own without any medical supervision, I would have agreed with you and advised you to go for gradually tapering off Klonopin. This is safe but there is one problem....

I have a question about Zoloft , Lunesta and Klonopin . I took around 1.5 mg of Klonopin around five PM CST (give or take one-two hours, it s 11:20 PM now) one Lunesta (no idea about dosage) and around 100 mg of Zoloft, again at around five PM. Is it fine if I have two-three beers now or will there be severely adverse affects?

doctor1 MD

Hi,

Both Klonopin and Lunesta act as sedatives and therefore, should not be taken with alcohol, due to risk of adverse effects like excessive sedation, respiratory depression etc. Also 1.5 mg of Klonopin is not a small dose, so it is better to avoid alcohol. There should not be any problem with...

I just took a pre-employment drug test and prescribed Klonopin 0.5mg PRN. After reading around, it seems these drug tests will detect 200ng/mL. If I took 0.5mg of Klonopin once per day for 3 out of 5 days leading up to my drug test, will that be detected in the 200ng/mL? What does 200ng/mL equal? I m 5 7 , 130lbs, fast metabolism. I know this should be a non-issue since it s prescribed, but I didn t think to mention it for the drug test and will not be excited to have to explain it if they even give me the chance.
