Question about Benzos

1193 Views 5 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  c0ry
Are benzos like SSRI's in that some work for some people and they have different effects on different people?

What are the differences between the different benzos like Ativan, Xanax, etc... Why do some people prefer Ativan while others prefer Xanax?

It really is different for everyone. I take 0.5 mg of Ativan twice a day, and I feel this is a decent dosage as I become moderately sedated and calm with it. I tried 1 mg of Xanax (the supposed equivalent of 4 of my dinky 0.5 mg Ativan pills) and did not feel as calm as I do when I take my normal dosage of Ativan, even though most people feel Xanax is the more potent benzo.
