Intended to be off,
(if I’m joking: when?)
I think I was being genuine.
‘COMPARISON OF BENZODIAZEPINE PHARMACOLOGY’ Is that a joke ? Some of the onset of action figure are ridiculous. 2 mg clonazepam is supposed to be equivalent to 20 mg diazepam or 40 mg Librium.
And *gasp* 30 mg temazepam is equivalent to 5 mg diazepam ??
As a side note, the half life figures (at least when interpreted as common) are a mess.
That ‘information’ can hurt people ! Does anyone feel like sending them an email and kicking them in the butt ??’
I consider that table having a lot of potential for further iatrogenic harm. Maybe some people who have a mild dependency can switch from clonazepam to diazepam at a rate of 1:10. Same for other benzos. That temazepam conversion rate is a total joke, a sick one at that.
I could send them an email, but they wouldn’t listen. I’m not sure how serious they are if they post such a conversion table.
