What is Oxazepam dose equivalent to Xanax XR dose ?

"I use benzos almost every day, For most days I use 10mg of oxazepam (sometimes only 5 mg), but on some days during the week (mostly when I expect that I will face many stressful situations), I take Xanax XR 1mg.

Now I wonder, if anyone knows approx. How many mg of Oxazepam is equal to 1mg of Xanax XR ? Could it be even as much as 40 mg of Oxazepam ?

And I also wonder, What is the duration of effects of Oxazepam, Xanax XR ? In other words, How long the effects last (in mentioned doses) ? After taking my dosage of these two drugs so about how long does it take to kick in ?

Thank you in advance !""I use benzos almost every day, For most days I use 10mg of oxazepam (sometimes only 5 mg), but on some days during the week (mostly when I expect that I will face many stressful situations), I take Xanax XR 1mg.

"This is a tricky question because you are talking about extended release Xanax. According to this chart (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ben… 40mg of oxazepam would be equal to 1mg of instant release alprazolam. However, since the Xanax XR works slowly and over time, it might feel like a bit less, and thus a lower dose of oxazepam might feel like it has the same effect. After taking a look at that chart, it seems that Xanax peaks higher and lasts longer than Oxazepam overall. For me, Xanax begins working within 15 minutes, usually always before that. I'm not sure about oxazepam though. Hope this helped, and best of luck!"
