xanax compared to alprazolam medication

People taking either Ativan or Xanax should avoid blood concentrations of alprazolam. It's less likely to have drug interactions, but more likely to cause withdrawal symptoms compared to similar drugs. Xanax (alprazolam) effectively treats. Ativan (lorazepam) and Xanax (alprazolam) are both used to treat anxiety and interactions with other medications when compared to Xanax.

    works great 10/12/06 Well it works great to fall asleep. I just don't want to take it regularly. I've taken it off an on (like maybe once or twice a week) for 4 or 5 months. But once my sleep aid (Trazadone) was causing bad chest pains/heart abnormalities I had to find a new sleep aid. So I started taking Xanax 1 mg every night (for 2 or 3 weeks). It works but I already had to change my dosage from .75 mg to 1 mg to fall asleep. Rozerem, Lunesta, Gaba and 5-HTP didn't work for me. But I finally tried Ambien last night and it worked with no side effects. All those crazy side effects of sleep walking and hallucinating made me very scared to try it and I put off trying it for years. But nothing weird happened last night so hopefully I can stick with Ambien since its less habit forming than xanax. Hope this helps. 10/19/06 UPDATE: Damnit :( the Ambien caused chest pains and heart arrhythmia too. That's the 3rd sleep aid that caused that side effect (Trazadone, Elavil, and now Ambien). That's supposed to be a really rare side effect with Ambien so I didn't think it would happen. I guess my heart is just really sensitive to sleep aids. So I'm back on xanax (hopefully temporarily) while I find another sleep aid that works without affecting my heart. I might try Lunesta again at higher dosage (3 mg). If anyone has advice please help!

    Works very well for anxiety. Stay far away from any alcohol consumption while taking this medicine.
