So which do you all think is stronger and faster acting when it comes to these four benzos?
I put Xanax (alprazolam) in with Lorazepam as they are both fast acting
Clonazepam (klonopin) and Diazepam (Vallium) seem to be the psychiatrists choice as they have a longer half life and supposedly Klonopin is stronger but it can make you feel lethargic and depressed.
Personally i would choose Xanax and Lorazepam if you need to go to something social like a party, wedding, social gathering, school or whatever because they work better, but then again they are said to be more addictive, although i find myself only wanting to hang around the house on clonazepam and high dose clonazepam makes it even worse. I am like a vegetable, calm but not interested in watching tv or going outside or writing or anything.
Lorazepam gives me motivation and social help, Xanax i do want to try because its the most potent well except for triazolam and midazolam but i will not try them after i was given triazolam as a pre med, it was so good i had terrible withdrawals from it, worse than zopiclone and i had only had one dose of 0.25MG of triazolam so thats pretty bad.
Yeah so please tell me your feedback
I would rather my doc switch me to Lorazepam as i find them more useful and less sedating, they perk me up and also make me sleepy at the end of the day......
Xanax may be too strong, i do not know. I read that you only take it once a day, unlike lorazepam and clonazepam and with diazepam its so weak you need a lot but its useful in people coming off Xanax and lorazepam.
Anyway whats your verdict?
I know it depends on the dosage but there are equivalencies
) Half life
( Klonopin, Rivotril ) Half life
( Valium )Half life
20-100 OR 36-200 hrs depending on the individual.
( Ativan )Half life
So it would seem that the least potent out of these four would be the Diazepam
The fastest acting would be Alprazolam
The longest half life per pill would be Clonazepam
And overall fast acting, potent benzo with less side effects would be lorazepam
What would you choose?
or have you been on them all?
also would the effects vary depending on the sex of the person taking them aswell as other things like physical and mental health? Chemical absorption and heart rate. I have noticed a few males on here who dislike lorazepam but females seem to prefer it over klonopin. I know i do
