Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your concerns today.
I am sorry to hear about your problem.
I understand your concerns about taking this new drug but just to let you know, this drug belongs to the same class as xanax (which contains alprazolam and klonopin contains clonazepam i.e. both are anxiolytic).
So I would not worry about the switch too much at all.
You should be fine.
Let me know if you have more questions.
