You shouldn't really be taking it every day, tolerance and dependency are pretty much inevitable with daily Benzo use.
The reality is, it takes months(usually several) to completely reset Benzo tolerance, but you'll probably get a noticeable increase in potency from 2 weeks onwards. You're likely to find tolerance build much more quickly from this point forward though, so I wouldn't expect to be able have two weeks off and a month on with the same efficacy as the first time 'round, it doesn't work like that in my experience with them.
Yeah i understand. Its just that my doc WANTS me to take 20mg at night and 10mg for any panic attacks.
