I know ativan and Xanax (alprazolam) are in the same drug class but what are some of the differences between the 2 drugs?
Ativan vs Xanax (alprazolam): Both Ativan (lorazepam) and xanax (alprazolam) are benzodiazepine tranquilizers.

So if Thues = Tuesday and your test is on that Friday it "could" still be detected. ...Read more
