How fast does Valium start working?
One user on a forum stated that Valium works better for them than Xanax. They noted that Valium is less habit-forming and has a longer half-life. Another user mentioned that Valium has the longest half-life out of all benzodiazepines, but may not be as effective for panic attacks as faster-acting benzos like Xanax. It was also noted that benzodiazepines are typically prescribed for short-term use only due to their habit-forming nature and potential side effects. Users emphasized the importance of finding alternative therapies and strategies to address the root causes of anxiety and panic attacks, rather than relying solely on medication.
