What’s the difference between the drug Valium & Xanax? Are they both tranquilizers? Whats the difference?
I suffer from Depression and Panic attacks, I have tryed Xanax and am wondering about the affects of Valium? I hear people who are stressed out say “I need a valium”
They are in the same category of drug, which is the anti-anxyolitic (they are used to moderate anxiety). Valium is older and comes in doses of 2 mg., 5 mg. and 10 mg. Xanax is newer and comes in smaller doses. Xanax may be more addicting, but they both work well for treating panic attacks. The problem is, they don’t work indefinitely at the same dose (the body builds a tolerance for them), and you should avoid drinking alcohol while taking them, as this could result in a black out or in serious problems with judgment (especially around heavy machinery).
