You are exactly right - Ativan works much better. However, it is short acting and does not control symptoms for an extended period of time like Xanax. It is also very addictive. For these reasons, you might have difficulty with finding a doctor to prescribe it.
If I were you, I would encourage your doctor to give you a couple tablets that you can take in times of dire need instead of going to the ED.
