In brief: Safe?
Both medications are classified as a benzodiazepine and are anti-anxiety meds.
As such, both are potentially habit forming and can be a med of abuse. How safe they are depends on your definition. At any rate, yes, you can be switched from one to the other, but don't take them at the same timw.
