FAQs About Klonopin Addiction & Treatment

  • How much Klonopin is too much?

    Taking any amount of Klonopin without a prescription can lead to dangerous outcomes. Doctors tailor Klonopin prescriptions to each individual patient, and doses can vary widely. In other words, using Klonopin in ways other than directed — or using another person’s prescription — can mean taking a life-threatening amount of the drug. Klonopin is also a controlled substance, and taking it without a prescription or in ways other than prescribed is misuse.

  • How often can you take Klonopin?

    Klonopin is typically prescribed on an as-needed basis, but it may be prescribed to be taken one to three times a day for certain conditions.

  • What is a high dose of Klonopin?

    The maximum daily dose is 4 mg per day for anxiety treatment. For the treatment of seizures, the maximum daily dose is 20 mg per day. However, even lower doses like 0.5 mg per day may be high for a person who has never used benzodiazepines.

  • How long does it take to get addicted to Klonopin?

    The answer is different for everyone, but the patients of highest concern are people who have used benzos for six months or longer. Still, some people may experience addiction after only a few weeks.

  • How can I stop my Klonopin addiction?

    It is best to seek professional treatment when trying to end Klonopin use. This is because quitting benzos like Klonopin can cause severe withdrawal symptoms, including headaches, tremors, visual changes, hallucinations, anxiety, depression and seizures.

  • Does The Recovery Village offer treatment programs for Klonopin addiction?

    The Recovery Village has rehab facilities throughout the country that offer evidence-based treatment programs for Klonopin addiction.
