Klonopin is a derivatie of Xanax. It has a (half life) of 24 hours, whereas Xanax only lasts 3-4 hours. Normally, Klonopin is given to wean people off of Xanax. Xanax is very addicting. I am addicted. Perhaps you could get on an anti-depressant during the day and take your Klonopin at night. If indeed these two drugs were illegal together then why did the pharmacist fill them? He could lose his license if they were illegal. My best advice is to ask your shrink.

v0-5, this is off topic, but how long have you been addicted to Xanax? have you had side effects of being on it long term? (not including withdrawal symptoms). I think i will probably have to take it for the rest of my life as it seems to be the only thing that helps me, I'm just nervous there will be side effects down the road.
[QUOTE=hry33]klonapin and xanax arent the same, they are different valium type meds, many take both, nothing illegal about them

klonapin does last longer and so needs to be taken less often during the day, both are popular for anxiety, especially panic attacks

the doses of both are different, if klonapin is too strong, reduce the dose until you get used to it

its rare for an anxiety sufferer to become truly addicted to any of these meds, most are too sensible, xanax is no more dangerous or addictive than any other valium type med but has a bad reputation in some places, therefore if asking doc for a valium type med, generally best to not ask for xanax[/QUOTE]They are both benzodiazapams. They are the same. The Klonopin just lasts longer. My shrink told me this. Xanax is very addictive. Look it up on the internet. Believe me, I have gone through withdrawl and it is horrible. Flu like symptoms and seizures are among the worse. The anxiety also comes back ten fold. Valium is great. I took it for my angioplasty sugery. :bouncing:
