This question has also been asked and answered here: Valium vs Xanax: Which is better?
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
10 mg Valium is = to 0.5 mg Xanax.
Kind regards... pamee
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...
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.
I was switched because of the half life and the purpose of myune system building a tolerance to the xanax and they had become useless to me by that point in my prescribed days of benzo use! Originally it was one three times a day and finally I ended my benzo use being weined off of taking 2 mg every 6 hours to not exceed 4 in total daily! It takes 6 months to be properly Weined off of valium at such a high dosage as I was on. My suggestion(simple opinion..so do NOT take to heart and get butthurt)) do not allow urself to become dependant upon these narcotics as I have done in my past there ARE Definitely different kinds of ways to get around being prescribed to such a horrible narcotic.. Seek second even third opinions before making such a life altering decision if u can. Also, if possible, find an alternative to such DRUGS!!! YOU "'*'WILL'*"" THANK ME LATER FOR THIS!! I PROMISE YOU THIS...
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
The answer to this question is - 2 10mg Valium are as strong as (probably a little stronger) 1 2mg Xanax.
20mg of Valium is equal to 0.25mg of xanax. I know because im on 2mg of xanax and tried to switch to Valium and couldnt, no comparison to MY level of anxiety but everyone is different.
Alprazolam (Xanax) has a shorter life span than Diazepam (Valium), but Diazepam (Valium) is no where near as strong as Alprazolam (Xanax). The mg's of Alprazolam (Xanax) vs. the mg's of Diazepam (Valium) is, 10mg's of Diazepam (Valium) equals 0.5mg's of Alprazolam (Xanax). With that being said 20mg's of Diazepam (Valium) would equal 1mg of Alprazolam (Xanax) and 40mg's of Diazepam (Valium) is equal to 2mg's of Alprazolam (Xanax). I've been on xanax for 14 years still to this day. I've tried all the benzodiazepine's, Lorazepam (Ativan), Diazepam (Valium), Alprazolam (Xanax) & Clonazepam (Klonopin), and can tell you that out of the 4 I just named, Alprazolam (Xanax) is the strongest benzodiazepine per mg. I hope this helped. - KelTecRespec
