What to do if I have Xanax (alprazolam). 5mg and clonazepam. 5mg?

Xanax/Klonopin. Don't mix the two. Ask your prescribing doctor on advise as to which one to continue with.
What ? Why do you have them both ? Isn't one rotten tomato enough ! xanax (alprazolam) is more dangerous, Klonopin a wee less, being long acting. Are you careless , or is it your nurse practitioner. No sensible physician will issue them both. Enough ? .
