Xanax wasn't working anymore. Anyone know if i'll have withdrawals from the xanax? AND WILL THE VALIUM BE A GOOD CHANGE? I could use any feedback on this. help is appreciated! Thanks!
This question has also been asked and answered here: Valium vs Xanax: What's the difference?
Xanax is a very short acting benzo and is not meant to be taken chronically. No, you shouldn't suffer withdrawals but you may find yourself somewhat sedated as 40mgs a day of Valium is a pretty good dose.
Valium acts much longer then xanax and is quite often used to ween people off benzodiazapines as they are not meant to be taken for a long period of time. There are much safer drugs for anxiety and most doctors are trying to get their patients off long term benzo use/abuse... Good luck and I hope this helps... Dave
Hi Callieo,I was on xanax for about 6 yrs & was switched to Klonpin about 3 yrs ago. I myself had absolutely NO withdrawal symptoms whatsoever! So I think you will be just fine. I think this is due to the fact that you are just switching to another med that is very simular. Best of luck :-)
