at first .5mg Xanax 3xs daily. I did not like this so my Doctor gave me Valium 10mgs 3xs daily. The Xanax seemed to make me more agitated and nervous whereas the Valium has none of these effects so far.
This question has also been asked and answered here: Valium vs Xanax: What's the difference?
it just seems like you had the side effects to xanax while valium you dont. its quite common for this to happen to a person. I dont know about taking valium so many times a day since the half life on this med is 100 hours so 5mg will be in your system 3 days after you take 1 pill so with the amount of valium your taking a day there will be massive overlap. (xanax is in your system for a MUCH MUCH shorter time).
30mg is a relatively higher dose but you can take up to 40mg. Diazepam (Valium) is a great drug and works for many people. It's less abused do to the fact that it doesn't have a fast onset like Xanax does and it's less potent. (.5mg Xanax is equal to 10mg Valium). I personally take Xanax and it works great for me and Valium did nothing for me at all. It all depends on the person taking the medication. Glad it helps though!
