Does anyone have experience with these two meds? Have they worked about the same for you? What about side effects and getting hooked? I used Valium years ago and it was tough to wean myself. I'm afraid of the SSRI's because of sexual side effects. I tried buspar and zoloft in the past and thought they were horrible.
I have never heard of tranxene, but I take Xanax 2 mg per day alone with no other drugs and it works pretty well. I still have anxious times such as now, (holidays), but in general it has worked better than any other drug I have taken with no side effects. However, there is the risk of dependence, but I would rather be dependent on a drug than deal with the level of anxiety I had on a daily basis. It comes down to a judgement call on what you are willing to endure. I hope this helps. There are many other older threads that discuss Xanax in particular. You should check those out and see how you feel about it. The only side effect I experienced is drowsiness and that is usually at night which is great because I sleep really well now.
hi----i took tranzene many years ago. actually haven't heard anyone mention it in about 10 years. it worked well for me while i was using it. valium makes me vomit and ativan depresses me and makes me cry. I use klonopin now with great results. about the same as the tranzene. xanax does nothing for me. good luck.
ok tom i am confused. i take klonopin and the bottle says "clonazapam generic for klonopin: your saying that tranzene is clonazapam. are they the same drug. it makes me wonder because as i said i took tranzene years ago and that and klonopin are the only 2 benzos i hav not had side effects to and they work for me.
timber ---took one valium in my life and 3 hours later vomited for hours. I have no idea why and neither does the dr.
