Can Klonopin be detected in blood tests?

Yes, KlonopinĀ® (generic: clonazepam) can be detected in blood tests, if the test includes a benzodiazapine panel.

If the blood test is being used to determine medical problems and treatment, it may or may not include this assay. If the blood test is being used for employment or other types of drug screening, it will almost certainly show up.

Sometimes labs report the presence of benzodiazepines (the class to which clonazepam belongs) as ValiumĀ® (generic: diazepam), another drug of the same class.

If a doctor has prescribed KlonopinĀ® for treatment, take your prescription or your prescription bottle with you to the test, and the presence of the drug on your blood test should not be a problem.
