Valium has a bad reputation. Perhaps because it was one of the first benzodiazepines or you have to elevate dosages from time to time similar as the Xanax (drug abuse). I have never taken Lorazepam. In the literature it is described as a primarely sedating, anxiolytic substance and it is used before operations. But honestly in the EMC and in other compendiums are written things like you have to take, it is allowed for, you should,... but everybody can react differently and drug companies are trying to market a substance for everything. Especially the ssris are not that good as some people believe (or the drug companies hammered them the efficacy in to the brain) and the drug companies have dirty tricks: selling a good old drug as a new substance (certainly much more expensive...)or modify a substance and telling the people it would be two hundred times more "selective" and therefore effective (for ex. lexapro, mirtazapine and so on...)

Have you ever taken clonazepam? What was the difference between Valium/Clonazepam/Lorazepam? Did you ever have difficulties to learn things by heart during longterm Lorazepam or Clonazepam?

Clonazepam is the only benzodiazepine you can use longterm for panic approved by the FDA. According to two studies the dosages dont have to be elevated and efficacy remains stable.

You stated Zyprexa: I have taken very low dosage zyprexa once and I slept two days...with almost no interrupt. They could marked that as a longterm sleeping pill.

It doesnt matter where I live in the eurozone but I was in the UK (london, Oxford,...) and I liked the wonderfull landscape and the houses with the "natural" roofs.

kind regards
