Q.

How long does klonopin stay in your system

Was given klonopin to help with Xanax withdrawal.  I was already down to half of 0.25 mg twice a day of the Xanax.

Took 0.25 mg Klonopin at bedtime.  The next day I could not function for the drugged effect and extreme weakness.  I did not take another dose the next night and woke up the next day nauseated.  I want to discontinue the Klonopin and go back to the Xanax taper schedule I was on.  How many hours would it be safe to do so?  What would be the taper schedule from here?  I am 62.
