Which is better clonasapram, valium or zanaflex?
The issue is, while they are all benzodiazepines, they are usually prescribed for different conditions. Also, all 3 have different half lives and vary in their mode of action and all have different addictive properties. There is not one that is 'better' than another. When prescribed appropriately and used properly they are all fairly effective.
Valium (diazepam) is the mildest with the longest duration; used for anxiety, panic attacks, muscle spasms and also to aid drug withdrawal, such as benzodiazapines, opiates and alcohol. Valium is quite versatile due to its low addictiveness and can be taken as only as needed. If taken as prescribed most people will not notice any withdrawal symptoms upon discontinuation.
Xanax (alprazolam) is potent, quite addictive and short acting. Used again for anxiety and panic disorders. It is often abused recreationally and doctors will often be unwilling to prescribe it without very good reason.
Klonopin (clonazepam) is very long lasting and is generally used for seizure disorders, severe anxiety and panic disorders. As it takes a long time to become effective it is usually prescribed as a regular daily dose. As it is also abused recreationally, again, doctors will often be reluctant to prescribe it without good reason.
