Street Price Of Klonopin
Klonopin is the brand name for clonazepam, a prescription drug used to treat anxiety disorders. Klonopin is in a classification of drugs called benzodiazepines (“benzos”).
The street price of Klonopin is highly dependent on the dosage of the tablet, as well as the location of the sale. Klonopin pills currently sell for between $2 to $10 each.
Street cost of Klonopin by dosage:
- a 1 mg pill of Klonopin may cost between $2 to $3 on the street
- a 2 mg Klonopin tablet may be priced anywhere between $5 to $10 on the street
People who buy Klonopin on the street will be paying much more than those who can get the generic version (clonazepam) at a pharmacy.
For example, a 90-pill bottle of clonazepam will cost between $15 to $20 from a pharmacy, depending on the dosage.
What Affects The Street Value Of Klonopin?
The street price of any prescription medication will fluctuate based on a variety of factors.
Factors that influence the street price of drugs:
- supply and demand
- local law enforcement
- dosage and strength of the drug
- geographic location
People in rural areas will oftentimes pay more for Klonopin than people in cities will. This is due to less competition and more difficulty in acquiring the drug.
Side Effects And Risks Of Klonopin Misuse
Benzodiazepines such as Klonopin, Xanax, Ativan (lorazepam), and Valium (diazepam) are antidepressants that affect the central nervous system. When taken as prescribed, they produce sedation, help with panic disorder, and prevent seizures.
People who misuse Klonopin and other benzos may experience side effects such as disturbing dreams, irritability, shallow respiration, drowsiness, and coma.
Due to high abuse potential, Klonopin is classified as a Schedule IV Controlled Substance.
