> The half-life is 18-50 hours, which means the amount decreases by half every 18-50 hours.
> If Klonopin has a half life of 24 hours in your system and you take 3 mg you will have 1.5 mg after one day, 0.75 mg after two days, 0.375 mg after three days etc. Whether it will be detectable in the blood stream also depends on your weight and the testing method. After 10 helf lives it would probably be pretty much undetectable under most circumstances.
> If you are thinking of going cold turkey, DO NOT DO IT! With Klonopin it might take 2-5 days before you notice withdrawal symptoms, but once they hit they can be very intense and can last anywhere from two weeks to two years. You can also have siezures.
I am not sure about the half life post I do know Klonopin does not build up in your system like Xanax does that is why they give them to people that take any kind of Morphine because Xanax and Morphine mixed together can kill you I have known 2 friends that died this way. Also about the COLD TURKEY this all depends on the person. I personnally took 2 mg pins atleast 3 times aday for about a year until I got arrested about 4 months ago (for other reasons beside Klonopins) and I have not taken any since and have never had any side affects
