In brief: Both strong.

They can both be potent meds that can cause severe drowsiness, cognitive impairment, respiratory depression and coma at high doses.
You should only take these meds as needed for severe anxiety or pain. They can be habit-forming and require a treatment program to wean off them if dependence develops.
