Hey lunadog,

A 5mg Valium is equal to a 0.5 mg Xanax.

oops, to answer your question then it would take two 5mg Valiums to equal a 1mg Xanax.

Does that mean xanax is stronger then valium or vice versa?

LaurieShay 22 Mar 2011

One is not really stronger than the other. They are in the same drug class and generally prescribed for the same conditions. The Valium is more quick acting and stays in the body longer than the Xanax, so in that regard they are different.
