I have been on 10mg valiums three times daily. I have recently been introduced to 1mg clonazepam and I am curious what the strength of the clonazepam 1mg compares to the Valium 10mg.
Valium can be taken from 2-10 mg and 2-4 x day. Klonopin maximum dosage is usually 1 mg taken 3-4 x day, but it can be prescribed in higher doses.
Clonazepam 0.5 is equivalent to 10 mg Valium. Clonazepam has a half life of about 50-80 hours whereas Valium has a half life of about 200 hrs. Valium definitely stays in your system longer.
I would like the answer to the above question! Why the hell do you think I went through the trouble of registering? I don't need any more pen pals. I think I just wasted my time.
Don't know the answer.
Klonopin lasts 8-12 hours. 2mg Klonopin is stronger than 10mg valium. Valium does nothing for me. 1mg Klonopin might be stronger than a 10mg valium.
I have been prescribed both. 10mg Valium is stronger and longer lasting. 1mg Clonazepam seems to hit you harder at first but actually made me a little uncomfortable and paranoid. Valium kept me on an even keel all the time with no surprises. I never really knew what to expect when I took the Clonazepam. While on Clonazepam I had some behavior problems and was very impulsive.
Valium is a short acting benzodiazepine. Clonazepam (Klonopin) is a longer acting benzo. 1 mg of Clonazepam is equivalent to about 15 mg of Valium ( diazepam). I’m a retired nurse and do know a little bit about medications.
On a benzodiazepine equivalency chart 0.5mg of clonazepam is the equivalent of 10mg of diazepam. You can get clonazepam doses of 0.5, 1 and 2mg tablets. Diazepam you can get 2, 5 or 10mg tablets.
Clonazepam is a fast acting benzo while diazepam takes slightly longer. The strange thing is clonazepam's effects last longer but diazepam metabolites stay in your system way longer.
