Hello VanessaHardy. Valium is a long acting Benzodiazepine. Xanax is a short acting Benzodiazepine. I would put the equation that 1mg valium is equal to 1mg Xanax. Regards pledge

This answer is crazy. 1 mg of Xanax is almost 20 times stronger than 1 mg of Valium!

Hello Vanessa,

10 mg Valium is = to 0.5 mg Xanax.

Kind regards... pamee

I would put a link for the equal values of all benzos, but drugs.com wouldn't allow it, so I sent the above about it.

Pledge is correct about valium being longer acting than xanax. Actually for long term use valium is better to use, and xanax for quick relief every once in awhile.

10 (TEN) 2mg Valium pills would be equivalent to a 1mg Xanax pill

10mg Valium = 0.5mg Xanax, therefore
(2mg Valium = 0.1mg Xanax) x (10) = 20mg Valium = 1mg Xanax

Ten 2mg Valium tablets equal a 1mg XANAX.

Hope this helps.

I took xanax for almost 15 years and I came off of them last year... My therapists and doctors told me that valium have a shorter life span then xanax... I am now taking valium instead of xanax...

I don't know if you made a mistake in your post saying valium has a shorter life span than xanax, but it's the other way around and if your doctor's told you that then they are wrong as valium has a much longer half life than xanax. Xanax is a short acting benzo. You're doctor probably switched you to valium, because it last much longer ... Good day!

Each mg of both xanax and Valium are as equal as the other! 1mg of diazepam is the same as any other 1mf name brand drug (or any other of the same derivative of the benzo family) ... The only difference is the length at which the drug is continuously effective in your system! If u have 1 mg of Valium it is the equivalent of 1 mg of xanax.. 2 mg of xanax is the equivalent to 2 mg of Valium.. Etc... So on and so forth! Valium stays in ur system and affects ur body, brain, and human functions for double the time ((give or take)) that xanax does!!! I know this from being prescribed to the both of them on separate occasions concurrently one after the other.. I went 1mg xanax to 2 mg xanax then was switched after two years of continuous and daily use of the benzo to 2 mg of valium used with the same directions as the xanax directions.

There is a non-benzo medicine called Atarax. It has an off label use for anxiety. It is non-addictive and some people have had some success with it who are prone to substance abuse, or just came off of benzo's and don't want to go back on them. The only drawback is most people can become very drowsy when they first start using it. Unfortunately it does not work for everyone but may be worth a try for those who do not want to do down or back down the benzo road.

I am not sure what the equivalent dosage is but I do know xanax is a hell of lot more powerful on a mg per mg basis. Valium can come in 10mg pills and if you were to ever take 10mg of xanax it would be bad!!!

3 - 4 valiums 2mg = 1mg XANAX

It's actually 15mg of valium = 1mg xanax
