I was previously taking 10mg of valium but the psych that prescribed the valium retired so I was referred to this new dr. Do I have to take the .5mg of clonazepam every day so it builds up in my system b/c I am not feeling anything from .5 mg. I also take 100 mg of Zoloft. Is .5 mg of clonazepam equivalent to 10 mg of valium? Thank you for any help you can offer.
