I take xanax during the day since it doesnt make me sleepy if I have anxiety issues and then I take the clonazepham at night before going to bed as its you today i managed to make it without taking any xanax or ativan during the daytime. im just worried because i never took xanax before since friday night.
Good Luck and Best Wishes.
Sorry to hear you're having difficulties.
I take that along with 1mg of Klonopin when I'm having a bad anxiety attack. .25mg Xanax doesn't put me to sleep at all. The Klonopin lasts a long time, but for me is very slow acting. Xanax doesn't work long for me, but it does work fast.

Ambien works for a lot of people, I didn't have much luck with it it.
sorry this message so long! lol Hey there.
I concur with the other answers, DO NOT take them together. The only difference is one is faster acting than the other. But they both are for anxiety. You may have been prescribed one for during the day and one for at night but not together. Get clarification from your doctor if the directions on the bottles are.

Iwas prescribed both but I thought they were for the same purpose,anxiety. should I take both at different times?.
It pretty much has me bedridden. I've been battling this for about a year and a half. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. And this works with you? I have such bad anxiety I don't even know what to do anymore.
But they both are for anxiety.
Both will help you sleep, especially if you're not taking them all day. I find that the xanax wears off during the night (short life) and I have to take another at 2am-ish. Ativan , on the other hand, doesn't. So I take xanax during the day, and ativan at night. Did I just repeat my earlier post? OOps, sorry!.

xanax is a lot more zombifying if you are suceptable to it, but even then if you take a low enough dose of it it will be ok. it also has a shorter half-life than ativan.
i think the ativan should be saved for emergencies and i usually only take 1mg total a day), and i think my pdoc agrees that its less of a worry prescribing it rather than xanax or klonopin as far as dependency, but of course it is still a benzo.
Xanax is part of a class of drugs called benzodiazepines, along with Valium, Ativan, and Klonopin. Doctors and psychiatrists usually But if you're only prescribed Xanax for occasional use and pop a one-off in the middle of the night—then you'll likely feel the effects in full force.

No, it's probably not, says Margo Farber, a pharmacist and the director of the Drug Information Services at the University of Michigan Health System. But while it might not be a life-threatening choice, it's definiy not the best option for most people today.
If you're anything like us, when you go against doctors' orders (we can hear our M.D.'s voice in our head: "Only take one for anxiety before a flight"), you rationalize: It's not like this is going to kill me, right?
Doctors and psychiatrists usually prescribe them for anxiety, as they mimic the brain's GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) neurotransmitter for a sedating effect, Farber says.
