I don't know why a difference in half-life would makea drug weaker. Is Prozac weaker than Zoloft because it has a longer half-life? I think the chart is just wrong, or else Klonopin just feels different from Xanax. .5 mg of Xanax would make me feel like I wouldn't care if the house I was in was burning down, nothing bothers me, but 1 mg of Klonopin doesn't have anything near to that level of relaxing effect. Maybe Klonopin is just less "intoxicating" and more specific in fighting social phobia, I don't know. Xanax can make me feel kind of drunk.

> Yeah, I don't know how you could simulate the pressure of an interview, but you would at least know if you could function adequately on the combo (e.g. that it wasn't going to make you too drowsey, etc.).

True. The problem with these strict 30-day supplies of controlled substances is they don't leave you much room to experiment though.
