This question has also been asked and answered here: Ativan vs Xanax - What is the difference?
Hello fcraig. They are both fast acting benzodiazepines. Thier side effects, the time it take to work are almost identical. Ativan is used more often than not as a straight tranquilizer. Whereas xanax is used more as a drug to help say anxiety along with depression. They are both extremely habit forming and when its time to no longer be taking them, a difficult means of doing so. Best wishes,
