Here is difference between these two medications, Xanax and Klonopin
Xanax it wears off pretty fast, lasts no more than 1.5 hours.
Xanax is a fast acting benzodiazipine but in the same class as lorazepam and Clonazepam (klonopin)
2MG of klonopin is the same as 3MG of lorazepam and .25 of Xanax is the same as 0.5 of klonopin so yeah Xanax is supposedly stronger but some people say klonopin is and i say lorazepam is stronger for me than klonopin
Xanax and klonopin are also prescribed for insomniac individuals. Xanax and klonopin can cause addiction.
Unfortunately, drowsiness is by far the most common side effect of all benzos, so it goes with the territory. That effect wears off for most users after a couple weeks of regular use. In fact, benzos are even used short-term sleeping pills. Taking a sleeping pill pretty well explains why you feel lethargic.

Benzos are all much the same, though some people do have their own personal preference. Benzos differ mainly in how fast they take effect and how long they last.
Xanax: fast acting, but doesn't last very long. Thus, it's best suited for as needed (PRN) use, such as taking a pill 45 minutes prior to having to give a presentation.
Klonopin: takes longer to act (though all benzos are relatively fast), but lasts longer. This makes it better suited to situation where a patient needs a benzo for chronic daily use.
Some complain that Xanax, being short acting, produces a "roller coaster" effect where it wears off before the next dose, so Klonopin may be smoother. This is a generalization, of course. About the only thing one can say with confidence about meds is that your results may vary greatly, so you're forced to try them all if you really want to know.
Despite Xanax being most commonly used for PRN use, there are those who take it on a regular daily basis. I'm one of them. I've been termed the "Xanax muncher" by some on this forum. My script is for 10 mg daily. I simply take them when I feel the need with no strict schedule. My doc is fine with me taking 4 mg at once if I feel the need for that.
