    Thank you for your question and welcome to AnxietyConnection.com.

     

    I am not a medical professional and would not be able to give you medical advice.

     

    Ativan and Xanax are two different medications. It is impossible to compare the strength of medications that contain different ingredients.

     

    For further information:

    Xanax

     

    If you have questions about your medications, you should discuss with your doctor. He or she would be better able to answer your concerns.
