Hi ,

10 mg of valium = 1 mg of ativan... therefore valium 10 is stronger.

Take care.-

I have found this and have no idia if it's true;
there are tons of thread about this, but for me, .5mg kpin=5mg of valium=.5mg of ativan. before i had a had any tolerance, i would have said .7mg of kpin=5mg of valium=1mg of ativan. valium seems to loose its effect like crazy. how much of which benzo i have been taking as of late affects this as well. I've somehow gotten it so .5mg of ativan is more present than 5mg of valium, when it used to be such the opposite. kpin is the worst of the benzos; great if nothing else is there, but otherwise it's negligible.

So the valium 10 mg's would do better then 2mg's of ativan. Will it go over the ativan when i switch???

Start with 3mg of the lorazepam until the future then move on to the vallium when ur tolerance is sky in from the the ativan
