Whilst living in NZ for some years I had prescibed a mild depressant I used to help me sleep called 'serapac' once returning to US they doctor I had could not fine this so game me something far more strong 'clonazepam' which is far more strong and I use in only sparingly. What is the equal dose and 'kind' for sarepac? Thanks XXXXXXX

Thank you for the query.

Serapac is Midazolam benzodiazepine. It contains 10 mg of it.
Clonazepam is also a benzodiazepine medicne. 10 mg of Midazolam is equal to 0,7 mg of Clonazepam (exactly 7,5 mg of Midazolam is equal to 0,5 mg of Clonazepam).

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.

First of all I would like to apologize you as I have provided wrong answer.
Serepac ingredient name is Oxazepam not Midazolam. Sorry for that.
10 mg's of Oxazepam is approximately equal to 0.25 mg's of Clonazepam.
Midazolam is similar to Oxazepam.
It should be available in US under the brand name Serax.

Hope this will help. And once again sorry for my mistake.
