Xanax better if anxiety attacks, it kicks quick, klonopin better if overall anxiety it work lasts longer.
0.5 Xanax = 1mg Klonopin, terms of anxiolytic effects.
Recently switched from Xanax to Klonopin.
Klonopin wins, hands down, for my physiology. I absolutely love them for recreational usage as well as anti-anxiety and anti-rage (which they won’t Rx them for anymore but I think that should be an indication).
I received 60x 0.5mg Xanax before the switch. It was effective, it worked for anxiety great as it comes on fast and hits hard, but I just don’t like howbland it feels.
I also experience no muscle relaxation from it which I would really enjoy.
Have been on Xanax for a couple of years and do not want to increase dose but just does not seem as effective in controlling the muscle tension.
I actually use Valium as it is the longest acting but not the fastest so it depends on how you use it. I have 2 mg Valium tabs and can take up to 4 tabs a day so if I am having a bad day I can spread out the doses.
