This question has also been asked and answered here: Ativan vs Xanax - What is the difference?
The only time a pharmacy could legally substitue Lorazepam (Ativan) for Alprazolam (Xanax) is if the pharmacist called the doctor's office that prescribed the medication and had the medication changed. Otherwise, though in the same class of drugs (Benzodiazepines), they are not the same medication.
