    Not sure what you mean? Serax is used to get people off alcohol and benzos, because although they last a good 6 hours, the half life is really short. It isn't much of a party drug, but it is actually used to get people off of benzos. All benzos are very addictive.

    I agree. They are all pretty safe as long as they are not abused.

    Uhm, I'd say Valium. But don't ask me.

    Yep, you sure can. Particularly with Klonopin and Xanax. Not even abuse, just regular use for a few months or more can do it.



    Main addiction is mental side effects like extreme agitation & anxiety. Some people describe weird shooting sensations like electric shocks, & various other bizarre symptoms. It's not the type of shit to go off suddenly.

    I knew a paraplegic who took valium for muscle spasms. He was arrested on warrants and wasn't allowed to take valium in jail, he ended up going into a coma and spent 2 weeks in the hospital to come off. He was given baclofen in place of valium for his spasms.

    Valium is one of the safer Benzos because it has a long half-life and therefore your body does not go thru withdrawals as bad. Xanax is not as safe.

    Valium is just as addicting, having experienced both that and xanax detox. Your best bet is to not take them to the point of building up a tolerance. When either do not give you the same pleasure, or what you are looking for and you find yourself upping the dose for the same effects, its time to walk away from them for awhile. The addiction comes if you keep goingafter that feeling.

    I did not say valium was less addicting than xanax. What I said was that valium is a tad bit safer due to its longer duration of action. It's the same principle with Heroin and Methadone. Both can be addicting, however methadone is much longer acting and therefore can be used for Heroin withdrawals even though it too is an opiate.

    First of all, xanax is one of the more dangerous benzos because of its shorter half life. Secondly, braveheart508 is incorrect. Klonopin is much weaker than valium. Thirdly, otat, you use long acting benzos to help with withdrawals-not short acting ones

    Where did anyone get the idea that Klonopin is so weak? That is what I am prescribed; 2mg tid, and that is plenty, altho tolerance develops. If Klonopin isn't the strongest, what is????
