Yes. Xanax and Ativan are both from the chemical class: benzodiazepine and the same functioning class: antianxiety. Where they are different is that Ativan is also classified as a sedative and hypnotic. Xanax is generally used for anxiety, panic disorders, anxiety with depressive symptoms, and insomnia; Ativan is also used for anxiety and insomnia, but it is also given for irritability in psychiatric disorders and to aid with alcohol withdrawl. Hope this helps answer your question.
