Perhaps a better ? would be which benzo is most "drastically" effective. If one i looking for recreation, they probably just want to know which one chills you out fastest, longest, and most enjoyably. Even one who really needs it can benevfit: Xanax, Klonopin, and Valium seem to be widely prescribed and readily available, but what are the differences in effect? Also, what of the other benzos? A list of all the "---azepams" with strength, effects,etrc, would be great.
Valium -slightly euphoric, despite other posters suggestions.Probably theeasiest to build a fast tolerance to.Pop 10 5mg oranges and you can stillfinish your homeworkassignments. General sense of "well being",thoughit doesn't work its real magic until you sleep on it:It's like waking up in aCloud witha squad ofCare Bears nestling next to you. Psychiatrists, however, quicklyrecognized that Diazepam needed a stronger alternative [fascinating rationalization similar to the development of Heroin to break Morphine addictionafter WWII, hence-]
XANAX or Alprazolam:A.K.A. -The One that Knocks You Down. This is highly effective in situations wheresomeone has taken too much amphetamine, in mild tachycardia or otherwise chicken-flipping: Xanax takes no prisoners. Use 1 beer to activate -[Not 2, not 3, 1 is fine] - ONE. A12 ounce beer will cost you all of 50 cents andessentially double the effect for one hour [hence, you use lessat the onset] The major problem with Xanax is non-selectivity, meaning that it hitsALL GABA sites and not just the Chill Button: One of those sites, incidentially, relates to your short term memory ~ with the result thatyou forgetyou already dosed. "Oh, I need to take my Xanax! I haven't taken my Xanax..."
30 min later: "Hey! I need to take my Xanax! I haven't taken my Xanax."
20 min later: "Heeyyaa iiineeeda takke mah...maaahZan...Zan-Zan...I haven't..."
30 min later: Thoroughly Worthless.
LORAZEPAM: Much better-and more addictive-than both combined. AKA ATIVAN.Very lucid relaxation coupled with a generalMorpheus-like:
Aghhh Man. Never mind Xanax it just makes you wanna flat out sleep. I took 2mg.s for my first time expecting it to be more euphoric than Valium none the less, But about 30 minets after it started to kick in I was starting to feel kind of a sleepy like a just woke up kind of on the nod feeling and I kept yawning too. Where as when I took 10.mg of Valium it made me feel more relaxed and less sleepy than Xanax and it put me in a more talkative an good mood a real antianxiety agent < from my point of view. I felt more mellow and lose off Valium. ^ ^ Now that I'v tried Xanax I wanna just stop taking it and go back to valium. I'll only use the Xanax if I wanna sleep.
Oh and Ativan more euphoric than Valium....... Please. I'v tried both and Valiums alot better.
the only way to really enjoy a goo benzo is with marijuana, otherwise your
just gonna get tired. 50 mg valium and a fat joint, you'll be feelin pretty
euphoric for the next couple days. but thats me. xanax gives me panic
attacks the next day, like i have withdrawls, but klonopins are dope.
If taken with alcohol it produces quite an intense state.
(Note do not drink more than about 10 units with benzos!!)
Benzos can actually be very stimualting especially with alcohol as
apose to traquilising. More so if you drink the alcohol fast or drink
Dispite the fact that benzos are meant to be tranquilzers they are
quite psychedelic and can be unpredictable especially with other drugs
like alcohol and cannabis.
Ive taken rohypnol with alcohol and many times its actually been like taking cannabis/speed and made everything more intense.
Not good if you want to relax though!
Anyone else here taken benzos and had the opposite of being tranquilised????
Oh and if you want to feel the most pleasant heroin like tranquilazation the best ive ever had is rohynol and GHB.
I took about 2.75g of ghb and 1 rohypnol and I was soooooo mellowed out man it was awesome.
Music was amasing! It was just like what would imagine heroin to be
like! I started acting like a 5 year old and running round the house
being silly. I felt so free like I could run down the street naked and
would not care! It tripled the benzo euporia but unlike with alcohol
was not intense, just way chilled out.
Xanax does indeed give you a euphoric feeling if done in the right doses. 2 mg for someone who has never taken it before IS going to knock you down. .50-1 mg is good to start with, unless your just looking for that knockdown. I have taken this for years. Just be careful, its very addictive, and tolerance builds quickly.</font>
Almost all benzos will be given out for anxiety. Tell your doctor that you are having panic attacks and they will give you something- don't say insomnia cause then you'll probly end up getting a sleeping pill. Also if you look hard enough you can find a doctor online that will actually write you a rx. They ask you what you need the meds for, then write the rx, and have a pharmacy mail it to you. Good Luck! -K
I told my doctor I was experiencing increased, chronic generalized
anxiety (I am in the middle of changing careers) and that I'd been self
medicating (my words exactly) with a chemical called Phenibut which
being sold as supplement, but that I'd tappered down off the Phenibut because it was causing apnea and enough respitory
depression to worry me. I
walked out with 30 days worth of Lexpro samples and a script for Xanax.
I don't probably look like a drug user which probably made it a little
easier, but my understanding is that there are doctors who believe in
treating mental disorders with medication and those that want you to
simply 'chin-up'. The pro medication doctors seem to be pretty willing
to dole out Xanax prescriptions, it seems to be sort of the anxiety
drug du jour. Its generally considered both safe and reliable.
As for euphoria, for me it barely even hits the anxiety. I'd taken a
good deal of valium a few years ago and was expecting (to steal a line
from Bluelight25) more of a cloud of care bears.
I guess this stuff hits everybody differently. For my part (and from
what I've read on boards like dr-bobs and such) I think Valium has more
of mood lifting effect and I suspect thats why it seems to be falling
out of favor.
I'll make a note to look into Lorazepam though, sounds interesting.
