Re: New on Klonopin Capri

Well, how long it actually stays in your system, and how long it has an effect are two different things. I think the half-life of Klonopin is (on average) something like 34 hours. So if you take 0.5 mg then theoretically, after 34 hours (or whatever), you should have 0.25 mg left, then 0.125 mg after 68 hrs etc. But in practice, it doesn't seem to work that way. My experience was that 0.5 mg helped for a few hours, then another .5 mg was necessary. But 1 mg seems to last all day for me. Clearly, there's more going on than just the half lives that pharmacologists are so fond of talking about.

The best approach is just to try it and see, and increase the dose gradually until you get used to the side effects. You should be able to find your comfort zone fairly quickly, and if you're like most people who take K, you'll probably be satisfied with that dose for a long time.

Good luck!
