Benzo without hangover?


Recommended Posts

Right now I take Xanax PRN for panic attacks and sometimes hypomania. The thing is it gives me a horrible hangover the next morning. Are there any benzos out there without that?

I've tried Klonopin (too mild), Serax (also too mild), Valium (worked wonderfully but also hangover) and now Xanax. I accidentaly mixed up Ativan with Klonopin, but now I've realized I've only tried Klonopin, not Ativan.

Any suggestions of what I could bring up with my pdoc?

Have had more experience w/Xanax and for me at .5 at night seems to give me a little more of a hangover than the .5 Klonopin (which I only took for a couple weeks, if that).  Sorry I can't give you more help in that dept.  Kris.

I took 2 mg of Klonopin at night time daily when I was on it. Come to think about it, I was pretty stable during that period. I'll bring it up with pdoc. I'm a bit scared of benzos though, after my Xanax withdrawal...

Heya Helena,

Well, individual response varies.

Here's a site that lists (hard to read, but complete) all the Canadian and US benzos and their uses and characteristics:

Here's one if you like charts better, although it's Canadian drugs only:

You're not the only one to have the trial-and-error experience on benzos.  But keep trialing.
