In brief: similar

They are both in the same class of medicines for anxiety, and are similar. Xanax (alprazolam) is more potent, and is used more frequently treat panic disorder.
Both are effective for general anxiety. Some patients find tranxene more sedating. Discuss this with your treating physician for a more specific answer in your particular case.
