    istory... hello to you benzoheads, i like benzos a lot and have access to them, maybe rohypnol being the exception (maybe). I wanna change my current benzo (diazepam - valium) which has been my favorite by now, being replaced by lorazepam - ativanwhich developed high tolerance too quickly and had to take a lot, and before that clonazepam, which is more expensive and it lasts a lot which i like (not like alprazolam - xanax) but i always end up messed up more than i wished, like an amnesiac bastard. Before that I had alprazolam which just put me to sleep, the less preferred of the family no recreational value at all, either i feel mildly relaxed or i go to sleep for 24 hours. So heres the bottom line for you all veterans: I like benzos that last some time, that dont have so much memory issues, my favorite so far has been diazepam i think mixed with a little clonazepam. Please tell me what I should try next...

    I am a huge benzo fan too, although is sound like I don't get them as often as you. All the benzo's you've tried are amazlying beautiful ones. SWIM's favorite is between clonazepam and Alprazolam probably, although SWIM loves them all!


    I noticed a few above recommened trying Zolpidem tartrate, and i just wanted to make it clear to you, that Zolpidem (Ambien) is not actually a benzodiazepine, it is classifield as a sedative/hypnotic. Zolpidem has a chemical structure that is different from those of benzodiazepines, barbiturates, or any other drugs with hypnotic properties. Although Zolpidem is not a benzodiazepine, it works and acts a bit similar to drugs classified as benzo's. Zolpidem works by binding to the BZ-1 receptor subtype of the GABAa receptor complez. That specific subtype has alot to do with sleep, which is why Zolpidem is a common prescribed sleep-aid. Although it's not a benzo, it does have recreational use! SWIM enjoy's ambien athough it produces a good amount of memory loss while intoxaced.


    But my adivce for a trying a new benzodiazepine would be to try temazepam, it's short-acting but fun while it's there. It's often prescribed for sleeping, but didn't make SWIM to sleepy. Hope I helped.

    I'd recommend Bromazepam if you haven't tried it. Brand name is Lexotan. Can't get this in the USA, however... I think it stopped going through FDA approval because it is supposedly more addictive than other benzos, especially when combined with opiates.

    Which would you choose?

    I have asked me for some advice on Benzos. I do not know which to recommend to him.

    Here are his choices

    10MG VALIUM
    XANAX 1MG
    Lorazepam 2mg
    KLONOPIN, 2mg
    DORMICUM (midazolam) 7.5 mg
    MG Bromazepam 6mg
    Mogadon 5 mg

    Everything above is priced the same as any of the other. The exception is Valium, which costs half as much as the others.
    He told me he want to get the maximum bang for his buck. What would You recommend.

    Please always include the chemical name of pharmaceutical drugs in your posts. This can be easily obtained from Google or other search engine. Doing so will avoid confusion on this international forum. Thank you.

    Re: Which would you choose

    The Xanax (alprazolam) for social adventures, Klonopin(clonazepam) is by far the best personal use benzo available without being required to be entering surgery or something.

    Edit:

    Swibf noticed the regulatory reminder, but sleep deprivation and a general tweak'id state lead to distortion and for whatever reason Swibf assumed importance was placed on the patented name.

    Its a wonder what reality becomes when its experienced without interuption.

    Re: Which would you choose?

    In reply to you's original post, I know which source You wants to get these from, a certain overseas pharmacy, hosted in a warm country SWIM shall not name. All the Roche brand drugs they sell are normals brands, the clonazepam is brand name Rivotril, midazolam is brand name Dormicum, bromazepam is brand name Lexotanil and nitrazepam is brand name Mogadon. The brand Klonopin is not the one they sell.

    I would go for the Rivotril, since dose for dose they are the strongest tablets 4x stronger than the Valium(diazepam), 2x stronger than the Xanax(alprazolam), 2x stronger than the lorazepam, 4x stronger than the bromazepam and 8x stronger than the Mogadon(nitrazepam)

    Well for sleep, xanax is the best one. For anxiety Klonopin hands down the others swim just doesn't care for.
