I'm using the dip test strips and I am seeing a moderate amount of keytones. I am keeping my carbs under 20 grams per day. I am slo taking MCT oil - about 2 tsp daily at present. I also read that brain fog is one of the symptoms of keto flu. I had that bad yesterday. Today is better. Do you have any recommendations based on this information?
Up front, I want to say I'm not an expert in this, and I'm not familiar with clonozepam, so I would consider what JulieG said as well. That said, some folks do get "brain fog" with the Keto Flu. You seem to be approaching it correctly from what I can tell with your diet. How are you taking the MCT? It has a short life span, and if you take all at once, could cause a rebound effect - so best to micro dose throughout the day. I also don't keep track of my macros anymore, but did early on. As long as you are truly keeping to low carbs, it should work out... If the brain fog is just intermittent and seems to be getting better, than it is probably just the keto flu. If it continues past a couple of weeks, or gets worse, I would back off.
