Hello,

5 mg's of Valium (Diazepam) is approximately equal to 0.25 mg's of Xanax (Alprazolam).

So 20 mg´s of valium would be equal to 1 mg of xanax.-

Hiya maso,
Excuse me for butting in on the q!
Would you recommend xanax over valium then for severe anxiety?My doc offered me valium yesterday as i'm suffering very badly with panic attacks,just a small amount to keep me going til i see my physc tue,but i refused and said i'd stick with the xanax(what i'm used to)she gave me 3mg to take 3 tid.
Do you think i made the right decision?
