Dr. Bob's FIRST chart at http://www.dr-bob.org/tips/bzd.html and my own personal experience along with my doctor that this is pretty much correct, except for the "immediacy" (peak to plasma) feelings which are much stronger than sometimes noted there such as for alprazolam and lorazepam. Of course as they say, your miles may vary...


1mg of alprazolam (2x .5) is 10mg (2x5)of diazepam. 10mg of diazepam is 1/2 mg of clonazepam, therefore 60mg of diazepam is 3mg of clonazepam (60 x .5) (20 fold). (And yes I know this is true since I tapered from 8 mg of clonazepam to 160 mg of diazepam before a recent reduction in diazepam.)


Is this true in all cases... ? No. But its a better guideline than the other charts.
