Klonopin (clonazepam) is a benzodiazepine drug that can stay in the blood for three or more days after your last dose.
Klonopin will not show up for the blood for very long after your last dose. For this reason, blood tests are not the most common drug testing method used to detect Klonopin use.
Detecting Klonopin In The Blood
On average, Klonopin can remain detectable in the blood for an average of 3 days after the last dose.
Factors That Can Affect How Long Klonopin Stays In Blood
The actual timeline for how long Klonopin will stay in a person’s blood can depend on several personal and biological factors.
Factors that can affect the detection time of Klonopin in blood include:
- drug dosage
- frequency of use
- duration of use
- method of use (e.g. swallowing or snorting Klonopin)
- metabolic rate
- body fat percentage
- use of multiple drugs
