How Many Hours Does Klonopin Last?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me how long Klonopin is effective, or lasts, before I take my next dose?

I currently take it 3 times a day and would like to cut it down to twice a day.

I take 1mg around 8:00 am, .5mg at 2:00 pm and .5mg at 8:00 pm.

I've been taking Klonopin daily for 3 years now. I titerated down from 6mg daily by cutting down .5mg every week, as recommended by my new pdoc. I had no withdraw symptoms.

The lower dosage of 2mg daily still helps my anxiety.

I didn't develop a tolerance, but my pdoc kept increasing my dose to 6mg daily. I think that's way too much.

BTW, I have a new pdoc who doesn't hand out benzo's like candy.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

I initially took my Klonopin (1 mg.) at 6AM, noon, 5PM, and 9PM. Then my pdoc felt I wasn't getting enough but didn't want to overmedicate, so she changed it to 2 mg. when I got to work (ca. 6:30 AM), then both the noon and 5PM were changed to 1 mg. PRN, and finally 2 mg. at 9PM (my early bedtime -- pdoc really strict about sleep hygiene). I rarely take the PRN unless I have a big meeting or a public speaking obligation.
