Hi,

Regarding anxiolytic effect, i think XANAX is
best for panic attacks, and K and others for
long-term anxiety or GAD - i think you are probably
aware of that.

After using Xanax for many yrs. at the same dose
I got panic attacks far worse than the intitial
ones i was prescribed for and about 3 to 4 times
per day - they really were incapacitating. That
was tolerance; when I weaned off the Xanax, the
panic attacks stopped. I have not had one since.

The Klonopin never bothered me except in conjunction
with Xanax, which also after some yrs. at the same
dose started giving severe dyspnea upon injestion.

Have you seen Ray's site? It has some rather
fervent ideas, but also a superb collection of
benzo information; some articles in the index
about the use of benzos in India too;

Tolerance is an important fact in benzo and
any other drug addiction; potency - well,
potency of what; also there must be a reason
why there are more than one benzo if all were
directed entirely at anxiety, but some are
for epilepsy.
