They come on differently, Valium
has a lot longer half life, as to where Xanax
has a half life of up to 16 hours maximum SWIM
believes... and SWIM believes Valium runs somewhere around 40 hours... this is all off the top of SWIMS head so don't trust all info. anyway the Valium is less potent, and most will say 1mg of Xanax is equivalent to about 20mgs of Valium. SWIM personally prefers Xanax because of years of using Lorazepam
seems to suit SWIM the best. best of luck to you, and be careful when using Benzos
, especially Xanax or Klonopin
. Two very potent.
