One or other: I have usually started with klonopin, (clonazepam) but resistance may develop or excessive saliva develop. A change to valium may help to recover effect and decrease saliva. Sedation may be a side effect of either, but my experience is that valium is better tolerated over long term.

Klonopin (clonazepam) more potent: If potency is defined as effect per mg. More importantly, Klonopin (clonazepam) has longer duration of action, which is generally means better coverage for seizure control.
