I was just talking to my doc about switching from vallum to xanax and he told me that he did not want to switch me because even though it says it may last 4 hrs it actually may last 2 hrs and than your body needs more, he told m it was very shot lived out of all of the anxiety meds we spoke about so we are trying ativan, I was already on klonipin.
