I have a question on what is the difference between Ativan and Xanax? I never heard of Ativan before until it was prescribed for my mom when she first heard the news, and then I heard about it on this forum.
She already had a perscrition for xanax and they still prescribed Ativan. Does anyone know why? Is it used more in cancer patients, and if so what are the reasons?
If you have taken both, what do you feel are the differences between the two and the advantages and/or disadvantages for taking a specific one over the other?
Thank you in advance.
