Xanax and Serax (oxazepam) are similar in that they are both short acting benzos. Xanax is specifically classified as an antianxiety medication; it is used for anxiety, panic disorders with and without agoraphobia (the fear of leaving one's home or going into public), and anxiety with depressive features and it can be used to treat insomnia.
Serax is classified as a sedative/hypnotic and an antianxiety medication. It is used for anxiety, alcohol withdrawal, and insomnia.
I hope this helps! Happy Holidays!
