Speaking from experience since I have been on both of these meds at different times. Valium seems to cause me to want to sleep as soon as it kicks in. Almost like a sleeping pill would do. Although it is good for relieving anxiety. clonazepam on the hand does not seem to cause extreme drowsiness like Valium. Clonazepam also works very well for anxiety and panic disorder but without the extreme drowsiness.
I can take clonazepam during the day a stay alert while it also relieves my anxiety. If I took a Valium I would need a bed within 20 minutes. it would knock me out. Both meds have long half life which is good.
