How does Xanax relate to klonopin as far as treatment. Are they in the same class that they have the same side effects they have the same benefits tell me the differences between them also

A MyDepressionTeam Member said:

Xanax and Klonopin are the same class of controlled substance med. They typically aren't taken together. Doses bw the 2 usually vary but, I believe, side effects are similar. I'm not the norm & do take both together as needed. Xanax kicks in more quickly but has a shorter half life; it doesn't last as long. That's where Klonopin comes in for me. It's slower acting but manages anxiety symptoms for a longer period of time. Hope that helps.
