Even though Librium and Xanax are used to treat the same ailments and are in the same drug class, they are still two different medications that are formulated in two different ways.

Since these medications effect everyone differently, there is really no way to justify an equivalent dose of Librium to create the same result as taking Xanax. An equivalent dose for one person could also be an overdose for someone else. Hopefully that makes sense.

I agree with Jenna on the Librium vs. Xanax question. Librium is in my opinion much stronger than xanax for me even at the high dose of xanax vs. Low dose of Librium. xanax is prescribed for extremely short term anxiety and panic attacks. Librium will flat out take away anxiety for a much longer period of time. Its used as a preoperative sedative in some cases. Xanax is the Advil, Librium is the Oxycodone.

Librium has a much longer half life but Xanax is much more potent. 50-100mg of Librium is comparable to 1-2mg of Xanax for therapeutic effects. Matt has it all wrong and obviously doesn't understand the pharmacology of benzodiazepines.
