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,

Hello. I was taking my xanax for over thrity years and I had a perfect live until my new doctor but me on this lorezopam know I can not drive, see straight things look like they are moving and legs and arms twisting all the time. I have no life now it is in this pill I am taking. Can not considerate as well as I did the other, the other xanax got me up in the morning exercises and I could go dancing or what ever I wanted to do. this stuff is ugly and I hate not being me at all times. I am glade some people can handle this lorezapam because I can not have a live with this stuff and I am a gauloma patient which deals with my eyes, which I have one eye the other the rentian is detaching itself
