Can Klonopin show up in a drug test?

I have a job interview next week.


Answer by  kd97 (733)

The short answer would be no, but it all depends on exactly what they are testing for. It is an anti-seizure medication with legitimate uses, and isn't typically tested for.

Drug tests will test for specific groups of drugs and Klonopin is a class of drugs called benzodiazepine. Current blood tests will test positive within 6 to 48 hours of prior use. Urine tests will test positive up to 7 days with therapeutic use and 4 to 6 weeks with chronic use. Hair tests will positive up to 90 days.

Yes, a simple urine test can detect Klonopin. It can be detected even after a time of one week. It also depends on the test or technique used to detect Klonopin. It is not that much easy to flush out Klonopin out of our body quicker. In some people it is found after 2-3 weeks.

Drug testing varies between companies. Most tests check for categories of drugs like Cannabis, Opiates, Cocaine, Amphetamines, Alcohol, Barbituates, etc. If your company tests for "Benzodiazepines" (which is what Klonopin is) then your test will be positive for Benzodiazepines. If you provide proof to your employer that a doctor prescribed it to you, you won't fail the test.

Yes klonopin is in the same family as valium and that is one of the categories that is tested on drug screen.


Answer by  Mrscmrn (1449)

Klonopin will show up on a drug test as a benzodiazapine. One can tell the interviewer that before the drug test is taken. As long as it a medication prescribed to you it shouldn't be a problem, unless the work requires the use of heavy machinery and safety is questioned.
