How are lexotanil and Xanax (alprazolam) different?

Lexotanil safer. Lexotanil (bromazepam) and xanax (alprazolam) are both benzodiazepine anxiolytics or anti-anxiety medications, but bromazepam is not available in the us. It's half-life is similar to diazepam and, therefore, much more likely to be safer than Alprazolam in most respects.

If my normal blood pressure is naturally low could the dr prescribe for me an anti anxiety medicine like xanax or lexotanil?

Risky. Most of the anti-anxiety medications that you've listed (like bromazepam) are in the benzodiazepine class which can lower blood pressure further. If you really need anti-anxiety medication, you should 1st undergo evaluation by a psychiatrist; let him/her know about your low blood pressure. They can help choose a medication from a different class (like SNRI, perhaps). Good luck. Read more...

Short Acting. Xanax (generic alprazolam) reaches its peak efficacy about 60 to 90 minutes after ingestion. Thus spreading a lower dose over a longer period would provide better relief than a single once a day dose. It is fda approved for the treatment of panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and social anxiety disorder. It is the most prescribed and misused benzodiazepine in the us. Beware of abuse.

Look and see if it is the same manufacturer. Sometimes taking 4 pills seems like it is more that is what i mean by the psychological effect. Read more...
