The half life of Klonopin is anywhere from 18-50 hours by most resources. It has been my observation most routine users dose several times a day, therefore I think there lies a potential for the actual drug level to be more than one would expect based on dose due to the overlap. I would think this would be very individual with many factors of metabolism and clearence specific to one person to another.
I believe the potency and strength of benzo's are dose and individual dependent. This seems to be borne out with the relaying of experiences in comparing - "this one snowed me, this one didn't". For alot of folks it appears to be a trial and error situation.
I get the feeling you are not satisfied with your response and I remember your doc is reluctant to RX another benzo for whatever reason. If this were the case for me, I would go in search of another doc.
