Both: xanax (alprazolam) & clonazepam are benzodiazapines. So you may react similarly to them. You had just asked in your last question if it will make your sleep? No guarantee. It would probably knock me our for a day - but it might barely impact someone else. If you are referring to regular xanax (alprazolam) - the clonazepam might not be as fast acting.
