Can someone please tell me the difference between Xanax (alprazolam) and klonopin?

5 doctors agree

In brief: Not much

Both are highly addictive.
Klonopin (clonazepam) may be slightly more likely to result in withdrawal seizures if stopped abruptly.

the shorter acting (xanax) the more potential for addiction
