I have been on xanax for about 2.5 months now and i went to the doctors today and she wants me off xanax! which i agree with because its addictive and im use to my .5mg 3 times daily and sometimes would take 4 pills in a day instead. so i am starting valium tomorrow and stopping the xanax. the doctor said that the valium will help me like xanax does it just lasts in my system for longer and i dont have to take as much. she prescribed me .5mg twice daily and an extra two a day incase i need it. i am only taking it for one week then seeing her again because once again she wants me off the xanax and i agree. i just want to know if anyone has ever switched from the xanax to valium and if it was an okay transition? ive also tried adivan which is also in the benzo family and it was like xanax aswell.. so is the valium just like the xanax and adivan?
thank you for reading :)
