Does anyone know the half life of the xanax xr compared to the valium half life. Not the regular version of xanax but the extended release?
Xanax XR doesn't last nearly as long as it is plugged to. I was expecting to take 1 pill a day and ended up taking two and having rebound anxiety, so I quit and went back to regular and that has helped me a lot. I wouldn't spend the extra money on it it possible. Vallium definitely lasts longer than Xanax, but also causes more drowsiness. It is one of the trade-offs involved with the Benzo's. If you do a search for "Benzodiazepen comparison chart" or something to that effect, you will find all the Benzo's in a list with there half-life and other valuable info.

Good luck,
