> Bromazepam is sold here in Canada, and my Dad has been on it for about 10 years. I have also used it once in awhile. I'd have to say it is an *excellent* benzo, as it seems close to having the same punch as Xanax, but lasts longer. It effects much sooner and stronger than klonopin, IMHO. If you get a chance, I'd suggest you try it.

Bromazepam is certainly my favorite BZ, and I've been through lots and lots of BZ:

Let me shed some positive light on it:

- Bromazepam 3mg = Xanax 0.5mg = 1mg Ativan..etc.
- So, it is less potent than X and A , but more potent than Valium and the other BZ.

- Has a half life of 19 hours.Can be taken once,twice or 3 times.

- Has no important active metabolites,so more like Ativan and Xanax,does not build up in the body after long- term use.

- Much less sedating than Xanax, and Valium,and does not give this powerful amnestic Ativan effect.
- Has sustained action,and, unlike Clonazepam and some other BZ does not have depression sffects at all.On the contrary, I found it,along with Xanax, to have a mood- elevating proporties(Antidepressant-like effect).

- Much easier to get off than Ativan,Xanax and Clonazepam because it is less potent,and has relatively long half- life.

- Only 2 drawbacks :

1- It is not a rapid-acting benzo. It takes 2-3 hours to have full effects,so can not be used for emergencies.

2- The company that invented it(Roche) did not promote it well,as it was launched when its other older brother,Valium was at its peek at late 70's- early 80's , so unfortunatly, Roche was reluctant to introduce it in the biggest propaganda in the world (USA),and so Xanax took over there.
- Excellent for anxiety and PD,mixed anxiety- depression,and,for me, the only BZ that was of some help with social anxiety (Clonazepam gave me the exact opposite: social withdrawal and depression).
- IMO,it is the most underrated benzo, especially in english - speaking nations, as it is still a very popular benzo in lots of European,Asian,Latin American and African countries...

Trade names : Lexotanil,Lexotan,Lectopam,Neo-Opt,Lexomil,Calmepam....etc.

Best Regards,
