the valium. I found the xanax to increase my anxiety as appose to helping. I find the valium seem to have a longer effect and so far my anxiety seems to be tolerable.
This question has also been asked and answered here: Valium vs Xanax: What's the difference?
xanax has a reletiveley short halflife and even when on it people have experienced rebound anxiety or anxiety before their next dose. I am unclear about the xanas 15 mg per day of xanax is a very high dose. People with panic disorder are usually prescribe no more than 10mg per day. valium has a longer half life so I could see it working longer in your system and help control the short peak that occurs with xanax. It is unclear do you suffer from panic disorder or generalized anxiety disorder. Also if you could make it clear about the xanax did you mean .5mg tid. if thats the case 10mg valium would be much stronger and control the anxiety. Watch out for tolerance and if its anxiety look into addding if you already havent, therapy. Please post or get in contact with me it would be helpfull to get more info from you. I have never heard of a Doctor prescribing 15mg of xanax before. Keep asking questions and keep searching, you are on the right track, most people never ask questions so that a start. Good luck.
That's interesting. Maybe it's just the way your body metabolizes the drugs. Most people have great success with long acting benzodiazepines vs short acting benzodiazepines such as Xanax. I personally use Xanax and it works great for me, but the longer acting benzodiazepines didn't work at all for me so it was opposite of what you're experiencing. Glad it works for you!
That's because valium is designed to stay in your system for a longer period. If u had 5 x 5mg tabs 2night tomorrow u will still have half of that in your system. Zanax is a quick release no fkn around remedy for our issues. Xanax is design quick release drug that require us to take 3-4tmes per day & to b honest after taking it for several years it doesn't help that much!! I wish i was still getting 5 x 2mg zans, 15-20 5mg vals & up to 6 x murelax 30mg tabs per day. But they don't understand what we go through, we might as well get them to get us permits &'put
