Switching from Xanax to Clonazepam?
2 Replies RSS
Met an older new Doctor today. He was very aware Xanax is poison, especially on the way out during a withdrawal. In fact he says it is the worst in its class. Refreshing to hear that, true or not! Doctor mentioned Klonopin works almost the same. I have a huge supply of Xanax right now and I told him that. I also mentioned I almost died during an unsuccessful switch to Ativan. Is Klonopin worth trying ? ## They are pretty much interchangeable, the dosing conversion is an even 1:1 when switching from one to the other and they treat they same things, as well as carry the same risks. It's just trading one benzodiazepine for another. You can learn more Xanax details here and you can learn more Clonazepam details here. The can both be habit forming and create the risk of seizures with sud... ...

PTSD, Anxiety, Panic - Xanax Does NOT work
3 Replies RSS
What are my options if Xanax doesn't seem to work for me? ## Most people don't say that. There are some stronger Benzodiazepines but they work differently? ## I agree with Eddy. Xanax is usually touted as one of the stronger benzodiazepine options on the market, so it's quite uncommon to hear from patient's who don't notice it's effects at all. A few other options that might be worth considering in the same drug class are: Diazepam (Valium) Clonazepam (Klonopin) Lorazepam (Ativan) Benzonatate (Tessalon) You may also want to familiarize yourself with another manufacturer's version of Xanax or Alprazolam, since they can all effect each person differently, regardless of there being the same active ingredient. In my opinion, the things that make them most differe... ...

how long does it take to work

new things happening in the medical feild ## Ativan is NOT new, it was approved by the FDA and placed on the prescription drug market in 1977. The active ingredient is Lorazepam. This is a Benzodiazepine, so in the same class as Valium or Xanax and just as addictive. How long it takes to start working depends on your body and metabolism, it can range from 2 weeks to a month. Some of the most common side effects include: sedation, dizziness and weakness. ...

how strong are teva 833
4 Replies RSS
are 2 teva 833 pills equal to a xanax bar? ## Yes, perhaps stronger at least at first? I tried my first Klonopin last week and thought it was too strong compared to Xanax. I also thought the same thing about Ativan. Xanax is so mellow & deadly! ## The tablet with the TEVA 833 marking contains 1mgs of Clonazepam, it is a benzodiazepine that's most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. This medication has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Learn more Clonazepam details here. And yes, the dose conversion is 1 to 1 from Alprazolam to Clonazepam. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Can 1mg teva833 hurt me if i took 65mg of methadone? ## Does a 833 teva the green ones that break in ... ...

Does lorazapam show up the same as Xanax on a drug test
4 Replies RSS
I went to my doctor today to get my scripts refilled and he gave me a drug test to check my levels? I am prescribed .25 mg of Xanax 3 xs daily and 150 mgs of Effexor daily and methadone. My question is I ran out of Xanax and took lorazapam instead will the lorazapam show up as the same thing as Xanax . ## It depends on the type of test he uses. There are some basic tests that just check for the presence of Benzodiazepines and if that's the one he uses, then since they are both in the same drug family, that's all that it would show. However, they are both different drugs, Xanax contains Alprazolam and Lorazepam is the generic for Ativan, so a test that looks for the specific metabolites would show exactly what you took.
