confused about dosing between benzos

Posted by Paul Smith on May 10, 2005, at 10:18:51

Why does it seem perfectly acceptible to be on 3 or 4 mgs of Klonopin a day when the equivalent of Valium, 60 to 80 mgs, is unheard of?

Also, is Klonopin generally better on anxiety than Valium? Or it is just a matter of potency, how many mgs you need to take to get the desired effect? I think I asked this before but am really needing input. Am thinking of swtiching to Klonopin as 40 mgs of valium is hardly doing the job, plus it is making me feel ill. I have to work. Thanks!

I thought klonopin just made me stupid. How is valium making you ill? Fondly, Phillipa

I believe clonazepam is partly responsible for many of my problems including depression, addiction, feeling like a moron...I doubt valium would be any different however.

40mg of Valium is about 2mg of Clonazepam.

How long have you gone without benzos in recent years? Perhaps they are causing the problem rather than fixing it?
