Yeah, Serax is the brand name for oxazepam and Ativan is the brand name for Lorazepam, and they are both benzodiazepines. But personally, I found that Serax is non-addicting. I was having sleep trouble for weeks, and took the serax for only two nights, and the third night onwards I was able to sleep independently. Now I only take it as needed when I can't sleep or have anxiety, and I only end up taking it the one time. I maybe take it now once a month, sometimes every two months, depending.
