I was wondering what the difference between Valium and Clonazepam is. I know that Clonazepam has a much higher potency, but if you are taking the equivalent dosage, is there a difference? Both have about the same half-time.

I'm not looking to take it for a longer period of time. I just need something to temporarily relief me of my anxiety, maybe once a month for a 12 hour period. I tried 20mg of Valium but it wasn't strong enough. I need something that completely suppresses my anxiety and all its symptoms.

By the way, is it true that you can let Valium tablets dissolve under the tongue instead of swallowing them? I really hate swallowing tablets. I have a phobia that I get them in my lungs.
These are some interesting points.

Hry, I didn't take 20mg all at once, I spread it out over a 12 hour period. I realize that Benzodiazepines don't last 12 hours and I don't mind taking more than one dosage. I'll probably try 15mg Valium twice a day next time. Also, I am very aware that these kind of drugs are very addictive. Like I said, I'm only going to take it once a month.

Janik, I think the appropriate dosage really has to be determined by experimenting. As you say, it varies from person to person.

I'm still not sure which drug is best for my situation.
