> Be assertive. Let him know you know that ativan, klonopin, and all the benzos are addicting. And let him know that valium is usually used to detox someone from the other benzos expecially xanax. Fondly, Phillipa

-I have taken Clonaxepam 4-6mg daily for 2 depressed, saliva dribbling, (EEK) years.

-Xanax for 2-3 months of up and down states of action, (althought its a FANTASTIC acute psychic reliever, and uplift). I DO NOT believe it should be used long term UNLESS the anxiety is VERY sever and only responds to this. It has a higher % of people unable to quit, trouble decreasing dosage, then other benzos-i speak from experience, and lots of research, from personal testomonials of the hell of missing even 1 days use-like the American Express card-don't leave home without it. Seizures can result from only 2 days without, in dependant folks on higher doses. It is however the ONLY medication that works in some svere anxiety and panic cases.

-Valium, I currently take, have taken thousands of 2, 5, 10mg pills over the years, and find it the most innocuous, benign, benzo. I can skip days easily or take it once daily. I find little difference between 5mg or 40mg in effects now-except if i drink (no no-i know).

Valium has been SO demonised over the years and often seen as 'old hand'. it works great for sedation, psychic tension quelling, when first started, but soons stop being "felt" IME, like Phillipa, this is my current maintaince benzo.
