    Default Dr. just bumped me from klonopin to ativan. Any thoughts

    I have horrible anxiety attacks and the dr just bumped me from the klonopin which did absolutely nothing for me and I'm about to go get my ativan. Does anyone know the difference? Anyone taken both at different times for anxieety? I just want some insight. Appreciate any thoughts- Thank you

    Ativan works faster for panic attacks and has a shorter half life. Hopefully, when you are through w/d from pills you will be able to leave the ativan and other benzos behind as well.

    Kris: If you've never taken a benzo drug before, don't start. There are other ways to deal with anxiety. K-pin, valium have longer half lives than ativan and xanax. All are bad for long term use. Many people will tell you that kicking off of a benzo is worse than pretty much any detox. What are you taking and why do you think you need these?

    Peace,
