Similarities: Hi. Both of this benzo's have a similar half-life, although alprazolam hits faster. You probably don't need to take BOTH since they have the same mechanism of action and duration of action. Talk with the prescribing doctor about this, and whether he/she thinks you need BOTH. Good luck and travel safely!
