In reply to Xanax compared to Klonopin, posted by rjlockhart on January 13, 2006, at 13:14:05
I had previously used Klonopin (caused me a lot of apathy and depression after a while) and Xanax (great at first but effects don't last long, requiring frequent doses per day, which made me very sleepy and lethargic).
Based on reading a lot of your posts, I talked to my PDOC and he thinks Ativan is the best Benzo - of course, the Benzos are all very similiar, but apparently, based on my PDOC's observations of his patients, Ativan causes less sleepiness and depression in a lot of people.

> Klonopin dulls me out, and sometimes makes me depressed, very.
> Is Xanax mood elevating, or like Ativan just smooth, and eases tension.
