Is lorazapam stronger than Xanax, and which of the two is most effective in treating anxiety?
Zambo; This really is not a matter of which is best. It's how it works for you some swear by Lorazepam and other swear by Xanax (Alprazolam) because our systems are all different and just like anything else we react differently to medications. What I can tell you is these are both the same as far as the benzodiaziapines class of drug as in Valium if you have heard of that. So they are like cousins of each other.The best you can do is take the one the doctor well prescribe for you and always take it the way it says on the bottle. When you first start the Lorazepam you may notice it hits you stronger the first or second time that is just because of the medication is new and it kind of hits you harder at first until your body and mind get used to it. Just remember this is nothing to worry about it well go away but don't drive or do anything harmful until you know how it is going to affect you or mix with alcohol.
Good luck to you hope this kind of helps you out but like with anything else there are more things to it than just which is the best. have a geat weekend.
