The Clonazepam is stronger but xanax works longer once it starts working. I tend to like Klonopin (Clonazepam) the best. Good luck marjorie zych

you got it the other way around the xanax starts working faster and lastes for a shorter amount of time

Sorry I thought it was the way I had it. That is the way it does it for me anyway. Thanks for the correction, marjorie zych

I completely agree with the theory that Xanax "kicks in" much quicker; but doesn't last as long (makes sense). I think Klonopin takes about 30-45 minutes to help me calm down!! That's a little too long when it's used for panic attacks, huh?

Yeh that is too long I agree but I think Klonopin lasts longer but when in the middle of a panic attack speed is a necessity. Good luck with the panic attacks they are NO fun. marjorie zych
