Mri monday morning possible disc herniation. Doc wants me to take a Valium before hand, never called it in. I have Xanax (alprazolam) for my dog. (.5mg). Same?

Kinda sorta. So xanax (alprazolam) is a brand of Alprazolam which is in same family as valium (diazepam). Not being a veterinarian, i can't tell you whether doggie xanax (alprazolam) is any different from human xanax (alprazolam). However, xanax (alprazolam) is short acting than valium. That being said, contact doc's office for prescription. But unless you're claustrophobic, you'll do fine w/o any drug. Mri's just loud ; boring and you must keep still. No biggi.
