Klonopin Street Prices

Klonopin (Clonazepam) is a popular benzodiazepine used for the short-term treatment of seizures and panic attacks. The drug has various benefits and side effects, and a high potential for abuse. In fact, in order to abuse or sell Klonopin, many people lie about their symptoms to get ahold of the drug.
Selling or using Klonopin without a prescription is illegal, and abuse can prove lethal, but many people still buy and sell the medication on the street.
There are different street costs all over the world and, in a country as large as the U.S., street prices unsurprisingly vary.
An average price for 1mg is around $2.
At their lowest prices, 1mg Klonopin pills can be found for $1 each. In some locations, 2mg can be found for $3. Users report that the street value of the drug differs from town to town. In some places, 1mg can be found for $4-5.
Some users, however, are surprised why someone would buy Klonopin illegally when the drug is not difficult to get a prescription for.
With the ease of prescription and the low cost of Klonopin even without insurance, it is no wonder that the drug has such an abuse problem.

Klonopin Street Names

When it comes to illegal distribution, one should be aware of the street names of Klonopin as well. Usually, drug slang is very popular among teenagers and people that don’t want to be caught.

Some of the slang names used for Klonopin are:

  • KPin
  • K & Pin
  • K-Cuts
  • Super Valium
  • Roofies
  • “The Dollar Rate”

Even if one doesn’t use the drug, they stay informed about its street names because it can help to stay safe. Note that in general, benzos are called candies, downers, tranks or just sleeping pills, and can lead to risky behavior, aggression, and loss of memory.

Klonopin Abuse Risks

Klonopin is Schedule IV Drug, which means that it has some serious abuse potential and before taking it people should be informed about all the risks the drug involves.

Klonopin can lead to many adverse side effects and induce tolerance and dependency. When mixed with other medications or alcohol, the drug can potentially have fatal side effects.
Even with a prescription, always consult a doctor about the right dosage, course of treatment and tapering off methods to avoid withdrawal symptoms that can be fatal.

    Marilyn: Xanax/opiate combination are EXTREMELY FATAL!!! I’m not a user and don’t know many. Even still, I know personally two people who have recently died in my small backwoods town from taking Xanax with Lortab or Percocet! They didn’t take a lot. One was a 12yo girl under her mothers supervision. She didn’t know how deadly this combo was and as a result of her mistake, commited suicide soon after. Don’t mess around with Xanax combinations! Xanax (benzodiazepine) is very powerful. But alone, it is not fatal. An overdose will put you in a temporary coma but, since it doesn’t slow pulse, it wont, in itself, be fatal. But it’s listed interactions with other substances is vast and dangerous. The two most dangerous interactions, far as I know, are with opiates or alcohol. Be smart!

      Btw xanax alone can certainly kill you alone. It has given people seizures while driving 70mph down than highway and caused very serious wrecks and deaths, do Some research
  • rick
    I clean out houses for banks, find these all the time. The whole country must take them
  • Oscar
    benzos mixed with alcohol and some Norcos or Percocets that’s a recipe for death
    • D dude
      Hell i should have died by 209 then, went out 6 nighs a week for almost 5 years on that combo.. it’s all in moderation

    I’ve been on benzodiazepines (different ones, had to stop both times while pregnant, took Ativan while breastfeeding because of the short half life, Xanax for a few months after an incident causing PTSD and panic attacks, but usually on klonopin.I have had many surgeries while on this medication (my kids call me “the broken mom”/ I have a lot of autoimmune diseases that create a need for multiple surgeries… Anyways- I wanted to state that YES, it is dangerous to mix benzos with opiates, especially in large doses, but it can be done safely. I was on 5-10mg of oxycodone every 4 hours prn post surgery and in the hospital, each time for up to a week at a time (once more due to surgery complications). I took my 1 mg of klonopin 2x a day with this (what I’ve been taking for years), and even my 10mg TID prn Librium when needed (I take it for phobias…..the hospital is a phobia of mine. Let’s just say that the anesthesiologists don’t always take my and my docs word for it when we remind them that I’m a hypermetabolizer in the channel that processes anesthesia (and novocaine, fun getting shots in your mouth every 5 minutes!) ….so have a tendency of waking up too soon ).. Anyways, to make a long story short, yes it can be extremely dangerous to mix benzos and opiates (especially in large doses), *but* it can be done safely, especially under the guidance of a doctor who is familiar with how your body reacts.

    I’ve been taking benzos for over 15 years and I got to the point where and it is Klonopin got to the point where I can eat five or six and just kind of feel kind of buzzy and I’ve never overdose due to benzos I just have a high tolerance and it’s almost like I don’t know why I take it then I don’t I’ve had that feeling like something’s missing and so I don’t see myself getting off of them but yeah you can do it safely
