This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Both belong to same category.
Xanax is longer acting than ativan.
We do not prescribe together due to the different duration of action which can cause rebound anxiety symptoms.
However both can be taken on the same day as the side effects are same.
It was my pleasure to help you today.
