    Its difficult to compare them, because they affect people differently and react to your system in slightly different ways.1mg klonopin is similar to 1mg xanax, 4mg ativan or 10-20mg valium (theres some dispute over this, since the effects can be very different, and 1mg klonopin can feel very different from 1mg xanax).The half life of valium is the longest, meaning it will stay stable in your system for the most time, but its also considered the weakest of these. I think these days it is more often prescribed as a sedative or muscle relaxant than for anxiety.Klonopin and ativan have similar half lives, and are seen as slightly less addictive for longer use, so they are prescribed more often. The effects are less noticeable immediately, but work well over time.Xanax has a short half life, but is very noticeable quickly, and has mild antidepressant qualities. It has both pros and cons, it helps a lot in a panic attack but wears off in a shorter time so it can be easily addictive if you have frequent anxiety problems and often used recreationally since it hits strongly.Xanax helps me the most for severe anxiety, and klonopin or ativan to decrease anxiety generally over time. Valium just puts me to sleep personally, but I know other people that say it really helps, so I guess its individual.

    they won’t tell you which one is "stronger" because it sounds like you’re asking which one will give the better high. But valium is generally the bottom-level benzodiazepene. After that they get gradually more potent per milligram… libriu… More:http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090122080652AA2xsaG
