I have never seen a 15mg

I have never seen a 15mg valium tablet . I have only seen 2mg valium,5mg valium and 10mg valium. 

xanax is way stronger then valium. To be honest valium dosn;t hit as many gaba receptors in the brain like xanax so you won;t get the same xanax effect however for a similar effect I would say in my opinion and experience 30 mg of valium is like 1 mg of xanax. 

They do have a chart somewhere that is based on science data but real world usage thats my experience. 

xanax is real potent stuff. Klonopin by science is suppose to somewhat be on the same level but same thing- in my experience klonopin works way slower and dosn;t hit as many gaba receptors I think 4 mg of klonopin is like 1mg of xanax. 

xanax is the kind benzo and none of the other benzos come close to the potentcy of xanax-IMO. 

I thank god for whoever developed xanax it is the most amazing drug-IMo but you definately have to use it responsibly because it can definately be dangerous if you drive on it and have a low tolerance and it just gets easy to build a tolerance so I would take as little xanax as possible. 

 

If possible get prescribed valium or ativan for your base then ask for a small prescription of xanax say maybe just 30 tabs 1 tab a day just for those real hard days. I would avoid xanax and go with ativan or valium but it's fine to get just 30 tabs in case of serious panic situations. 

xanax like i said is a wonder drug but alot of people end up using it irresponsibly and it just gets out of hand for alot of users. I have met so many people who got cutt off of their xanax script because they would blow through their script within 2 weeks instead of a month and then they go into a very dark place. so xanax can definately be very dangerous and can cause death if you run out and withdraw so bad you have a seizure.

xanax is no joke. very serious meication. enough RANTINg from me but no I don't think 15mg valium is made in the USa maybe in a third world clandestine atmosphere but not in the USA. Be  careful what you buy! glad you came here to ask us about it.

broken record

I've posted several different posts that are basically the same topic, benzos. Truth is you never know what works best until you find what works for youself. Some people are good with clonazepam, you're actually at dose that is pretty much the end of the threshold when it comes to an anxiety/ptsd Dx. I've been through all benzos Rxd for anxiety here in the US. Never tried anything from anywhere else. I have found that Xanax XR is what works best for me. Conclusion was rather simple in the end. When i was on clonazepam I found myself rather sluggish all day everyday. When i was Rxd Xanax IR 2mg TID (three times a day) it was not enough in the sense that it didn't last as long as would have liked it to. So my pysch asked me if I would like to try Xanax XR, I was a bit hesitant at first because i know how "harsh" (strong) Xanax can be. I thought it was going to floor me all day worse than the K-pins would. Well after 3 years ON THE SAME DOSE (I am happy to say), I found that it works best for me. I am Rxd Xanax XR 1mg 1-2 tabs TID (along with a few other medications) which is basically 6mgs total in a 24hr period. Alot of days I find myself not needing ALL 6mgs so i just save them, rainy day fund so to speak. My Dx is just a simple General Anxiety Disorder/with Agoraphobia. I find any benzo with a suffix of "pam" (clonazepam, lorazepam, diazepam) make me feel like I'm moving in slow motion. So this is why my dilemma was a simple although i jumped through all the benzo and anti-deperession hoops you can probably think of. I have actually one medication that is taken to help from me getting depressed, Trazodone, and in lower doses (100mg) IMO work to actually help with sleep. I hope you find what works best for you be it a benzo/anti-depression med/herbal remedy. Remember benzos are not the only option on the face of this earth that helps aleviate anxiety or the related. Try some excersise, CBT, and etc. My best to you.

 edit: I have never seen or heard of a 15mg diazepam tablet made anywhere in the world from my research. Sorry for the getting off topic so much.

Good on ya . . .

I think that it's wonderful Gm2 That you've been on the same Rx of XanaxER for 3years. You-have found your dosage level. I did the same thing with my opioid pain meds, 3 years without a change. Feels great, huh?

Yes sir it does feel good to have a sense of control. Hope it lasts as long as I need, and hopefully when I'm ready to stop I can only pray that I can...successfully
