Why is xanax better than klonopin?

Xanax better if anxiety attacks, it kicks quick, klonopin better if overall anxiety it work lasts longer.

0.5 Xanax = 1mg Klonopin, terms of anxiolytic effects.

Recently switched from Xanax to Klonopin.

Klonopin wins, hands down, for my physiology. I absolutely love them for recreational usage as well as anti-anxiety and anti-rage (which they won’t Rx them for anymore but I think that should be an indication).

I received 60x 0.5mg Xanax before the switch. It was effective, it worked for anxiety great as it comes on fast and hits hard, but I just don’t like howbland it feels.

I also experience no muscle relaxation from it which I would really enjoy.

Have been on Xanax for a couple of years and do not want to increase dose but just does not seem as effective in controlling the muscle tension.

I actually use Valium as it is the longest acting but not the fastest so it depends on how you use it.  I have 2 mg Valium tabs and can take up to 4 tabs a day so if I am having a bad day I can spread out the doses.

Xanax / Valium difference Alprazolam?

Xanax is the brand name for Alprazolam, which along with Valium, Klonopin, Ativan, and Serax, among other drugs, falls under a classification known as benzodiazepines.

Xanax is the most difficult of the benzodiazepines to detoxify from because they have the shortest half-life. This makes the withdrawal symptoms from Xanax more pronounced than other drugs in its class.

Xanax and its counterparts are prescribed primarily for the treatment of anxiety disorders such as Generalized Anxiety Disorder(GAD) , General Panic Disorder (GPD) and miscellaneous phobias, such as agoraphobia.

They are occasionally prescribed for sleep disturbances, temporary situational anxiety, or muscle tension.
