Re: Is Zanax More Effective than Klonopin for Treating SA?
Like many med questions, YMMV is the only true answer. You really have to try it yourself.
I personally don't find that any benzo does that much for me, but I'd rate Klonopin as the least effective in my case. I'd rate Xanax, Valium, and Ativan as equal at equivalent doses (I think the potency of Klonopin is overstated by most equivalency charts that allege it to be twice as strong as Xanax when I'd say it's more like 1 to 1.)
I've never tried XR, in part because it costs way too much at the dose I take -- it would be something like $400 a month vs the $33 I pay for immediate release. I take 10 mg of Xanax daily and that still doesn't even come close to fixing my anxiety.
DEA agents, being on par with Nazi war criminals, should be executed for crimes against humanity. They are guilty of inflicting mass suffering upon legitimate patients.
