Can anyone tell me about this medication I've been on xanax for 14 years and was recently changed to klopin and I'm scared I cannot take antidepressants and wondering how this drug will make me feel
This question has also been asked and answered here: Klonopin vs Xanax - How are they different?
While klonopin and xanax are both benzodiazpines prescribed for anxiety, they are different in their action times. Xanax is quick acting but short acting while klonopin takes longer to act but acts for a much longer time. Klonopin isn't going to make you feel much different than the xanax. It will take a little longer to quick in, but lasts much longer and builds in the system over time, thereby offering more consistent relief from anxiety.
