They both belong to the same class of drugs called benzodiazepines. Yes, they have similar effects. They are typically used to treat anxiety and insomnia.
Xanax may work a little quicker but the effects will not last as long as Ativan.

Suzanne everything that she told you is really it in a nutshell, I have had experience with both, now the Xanax I have used for panic (at this point in time I am on the extended release) it seems to enter the system and I get by on a.m. and pm, I could use a little more than that but I made the decision it's just best not to do that because the more I might take the more I could possibly need, you take care and best wishes, (Billy)
