Do Ativan And Xanax Have The Same Active Ingredients?

Answer

Thank you for your question and welcome to Health Central's Anxiety Community.

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

The active ingredient in Ativan is lorazepam and the active ingredient in Xanax is alprazolam. Both of these medications are benzodiazepines.
