How long will it take for me to feel the effects of clonazepam?1hr? I know it's slower than Xanax (alprazolam)
Within an hour: Clonazepam is a longer acting drug than Xanax (alprazolam) and its effects are less immediately evident.

I use Xanax (alprazolam) since 8 month ago now I am traveling and I lost my pills, so a friend have clonazepam can I take a pill just 1 day until I get my xanax (alprazolam)?
See below: The best solution is to review your medication use at a local urgent care, so you have a safe solution. This is especially true if you have been regularly taking xanax (alprazolam) and have other medications and illnesses. Although Clonazepam is in the same medication class as xanax (alprazolam), it lasts much longer and the doses are not equivalent. So it is not a good idea for you to swap between the two using guesswork. ...Read more
NO! The effects of both combined may be too sedating to be safe!

I have severe anxiety. Took 1.5 mg of klonopin and it's not helping after 2 hrs.? Can I take Xanax (alprazolam)?

Can I take klonopin to prevent Xanax (alprazolam) withdrawal? Do they "cross cover"? Please see the above, thanks!
New pdoc Rxd Xanax (alprazolam) ER 1mg every 6hr as needed. Took @ 1pm. OK to take 1mg Klonopin (older RX) @ 9pm, or bad mix? (Can't sleep full night w/ Xanax (alprazolam) ER)
Mixing is bad: Your physician prescribed those medications with the intention of you taking only those medications. Both Xanax (alprazolam) and klonopin are in the same class of medications and could cause an overdose. Absolutely do not take those medications at the same time without your doctor knowing. This could result in death from respiratory depression secondary to benzodiazepine overdose. ...Read more

I'm a very nervous flyer and I must take a flight soon. Best benzo to ease the fears? Ativan? Klonopin? Xanax (alprazolam)? And what dose? Want a 2nd opinion
Nervous Flyer: Any of the benzodiazepines will work, they all are anti anxiety agents. There is no best, it is the physicians experience and choice. Also, the dose is experience and patient specific. Discuss with your doctor and get the one he/she and you decide on. A second opinion for this is like butts, everyone has one! ...Read more

I used to take Xanax (alprazolam) & klonopin several times a week, low dose, and it caused panic attacks i never had before, now stopped and feel so much better!
I took .5 mg of Xanax at 11:30pm and but still feel some anxieties can I take .5 mg of clonazepam to get some sleep I was just diganosed with panic and anxiety about two days ago and still feel the anxiety kicking in and I am not able to get some sleep is i
I wouldn't: Using 2 different versions of the same kind of medicine (alprazalam and clonazepam) doesn't really make any sense, and Klonopin takes almost 2 hours to have its full effect. Xanax (alprazolam) is very short-acting and isn't the best sleep aide in the world. There are also non-drug methods of dealing with anxiety. Talk to your doctor about a better sleep medication, if 0.5 doesn't work, using 1 mg would be next. ...Read more

Call your doctor : I see that you're on xanax (alprazolam), (alprazolam) but I don't see Klonopin or ativan. I suggest contacting the physician prescribing your medications and asking him/her about this. Ativan may cover in a pinch, but may not be exactly equivalent to xanax (alprazolam). ...Read more

Call her to ask!: I'm hoping she know about all the medications you take — if not — she needs to so she can give you the best and safest care. That type of security might even help your 24/7 worries. These drugs in combo can increase side effects but as long as you watch carefully and report things to her and know what to watch for, it should be ok. Consider CBT for skills to manage anxiety too! ...Read more
