Q: How long does klonopin stay in your system

Hi I was wondering how long klonopin stays in your system? I take up to 1mg daily for anxiety. One of my issues even before I took klonopin was fatigue.Would it do any good to take it before bedtime? My cnp has mixed opinions on this no clear answer.Is 1mg a high dose.Any information would be great.THANKYOU

Hope,

 

Klonopin has a very long half-life of 20 - 50 hours, depending on age and health. Since the low end of that half-life is under 24 hours, it's usually taken twice a day to keep the amount in the system level. The "normal" dosage range listed for anxiety is .25 to .50 mg twice a day, but keep in mind that this is a recommended dosage, and doctors often need to adjust that some for their patients' needs.

 

Hope this helps,

Teri
