HAL9000 Posted May 24, 2012 Share Posted May 24, 2012 I'm dealing with anxiety even tho I'm on buspar. I think it helps for most of the junk that triggers me but once in a while its bad and I take a valium. I did some reading and was really surprised how long this stays in you. Like 100 hours versus 9 or 10 for Ativan or Xanax. I guess I should ask my doctor all this but maybe someone has already found the answer to this. If its half life is 100 hours does taking one say 3 or 4 days later have a much greater effect then taking the first one? Has anyone switched from Valium to Ativan or Xanax and was it better or worse? I don't think I need 100+ hours of Benzos for "as needed" anxiety but I was the dummie that pushed for this over Xanax or Ativan. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
