    I understand the dose and tolerance will dictate your replies .... and lets assume you mixed nothing else.

    20mg Diazepam - I felt the effect 3 or so hours..... you?
    vs
    1mg clonazepam - 6+ hours ..... you?

    Diazepam is interesting because it has many active metabolites that last a long time, albeit with less pronounced effect. In some people they can around as long as 72 hours if you take a high enough dose of diazepam in the first place. Of course that depends on the person's body, so your results will vary.

    Clonazepam, on the other hand, is a solid 6-8 hours, the same basically every time.

    At least with me, clonazepam is the more predictable of the two but I enjoy both of them.

    Thanks NT,

    I took my 20mg at 3pm today and here i type at 11pm with lingering effects. Just dropped 0.5mg clonaz and took my final 80mg oxy now too.

    my doc is sooo against Diazepam and hardly will give me 1 a day .05mg clonaz... what can I say to him to switch? /// or should I not switch??

    A educated source tells me stick to clonaz as it lasts longer and the potential for long term harm is less so than the other benzos...

    If you're not having any problems with clonazepam then I would stick with that.

    It's against the rules for me to tell you what to say or not to say to your doctor, but if he's against diazepam then he probably has a reason.

    I would stick with clonazepam if I were in your shoes.

    i would say diazepam 6-8 hours start to end of effects, and clonazepam 12 hours... allthough diaz has a half life of over 100 hours, so it stays longer in your system than clonaz, keepin W/D at bay for longer

    peak effects:

    clonazepam- 10-12 hours

    diazepam- 5-7 hours

    diazepam has a much longer half life and can "linger" longer, but clonazepam has longer peak effects.

    Diazepam 4-5 hours
    Clonazepam 8-12 hours

    The lingering effects of Diazepam are so subtle I don't consider them part of the duration.

    you'll can surely feel them if you take a high enough dose(130-180mg for me).

    *also booze helps to feel it.

    How were you able to take 350mg of diazepam in rehab? Did you cook up some sort of deal with the nurses?

    So why aren't you currently locked up? Or did you get out yesterday?

    Outpatient rehab is similar to inpatient except you don't stay over nights. You aren't given stuff by nurses but you talk with a psychiatrist a couple times a week.

    Diazepam 4-6 hours, clonazepam 8-10. There are mild after-effects from diazepam that persist for longer, especially with higher doses, but I don't count them into the actual duration since most of the time it's just a little lethargy.

    seriously, a lot of people in the medical field don't know shit related to pharmacology or drugs.

    makes you wonder how the hell they got a medical degree...

    Took 50mg Valium yesterday. Didn't hardly do shit. Dozed off for about 20 mins, then back to normal. I think Benzos are overhyped. Either that or my tolerance to them is through the roof.

    that should change your view about benzos.
