Anxiety board

Hi all I am a 30 yr old female I have been on Ativan1 mg 3 times a day and its a god send for my anxiety. I was just curious of what the difference between valium, xanax ativan and klodipin are?
j :confused:
Hey Jen,
That sure is an interesting question.
I'm not exactly sure what the difference is between those benzos are but I can tell you that Valium (Diazepam) is one of the oldest benzos and it's a longer lasting benzo with a longer half life. {REMOVED}
I noticed in your post that you're currently taking 3 mg of Ativan a day.
I strongly recommend that you stop taking it right away if you're not already addicted because once this drug gets a hold of you it's very hard to get off of it. I know myself, because I first started taking 2mg a day in February of 2003 and I'm finally down to 1 mg a day. I could go on for hours telling you about my struggles with this drug but I think you get the point.
Well, anywayz ... I hope you like the web site I listed above answers all your questions.
Good Luck,
I think they all affect everyone differently. Valium makes me kind of drunk feeling, while xanax has been a GODSEND to me. No side effects really, and zero anxiety.

I think it's like comparing advil and tylenol..they do the same thing but they're different.
