I am a Valium 2 gram user for complex regional abdominal pain. I am one of the people that have found the generic replacements do not work. Or actually make pain worse. After trying 3 diazepam alternatives without success. I have discovered Ativan a very good equivalent replacement to Valium 2mg. for all those people out there like me that have been struggling with pain since Valium 2mg was taken off the market and only available in generics Diazepam.
I find Ativan 1mg works identically to Valium 2mg . It works gently, effectively and efficiently, quickly, it also helps promote a good night's sleep. the pain goes with in 20 minutes. No side effects. I take Ativan 1mg as needed - usually every second night.
