In brief: Xanax (alprazolam) vs klonopin

Klonopin last longer , xanax (alprazolam) has a short half life as can be very addictive, any how do not take any without u physician advise and discuss with him/her any question u may have.

In brief: About the same

Both of these drugs work for anxiety.
Xanax (alprazolam) works faster and wears off faster. Klonopin takes almost one hour to work and lasts all day or all night. For occasional use such as in the dental office i recommend xanax (alprazolam). For long term use for panic attacks or generalized anxiety i recommend klonopin.
