This question has also been asked and answered here: Klonopin vs Xanax - How are they different?
12 Jun 2010
All of those medications are benzodiazepines, and each one comes in a different strength, Klonopin, and Ativan and Xanax are all used to treat panic disorder, and problems with anxiety. However, Xanax tends to act very quickly in most people and leaves the system equally fast, where the ativan and klonopin are slower acting, and tend to take longer to build up in your system and stay with you longer. You can look all of the medications up on this site and get a clearer picture of them. Each comes in different Mg's. depending on how your doctor wants to prescribe them for you or increase them as needed. I wish you luck, and hope this helped a little. Good Luck!

The actual 'strength' ratio between klonopin to xanax is roughly 1:1, but i dont know about ativan off the top of my head. However, xanax is more of a quick, strong relief, quick-comedown drug, whereas klonopin and ativan are made to last longer, but not come on as hard as xanax.

ativan was the "papa" of benzos. I took his meaning to be order of strength. Is this correct?
