ativan vs. zanax

Which is better to calm you down? My doctor gave me ativan becsaeu I was having some anxiety over an event that occured. I only took it for a few days.

I am going on a plane in August and want something to calm me for the plane ride. Should I just take double dose of the ativan? (.5 mg) or call the doctor and ask for zanax??

what do you think?

Re: ativan vs. zanax

I don't know which would be better. I told my doctor the ativan was not working for me so he put me on valium. I don't know which is better. ( I had a lot of stressfull things going on in my life and was having anxiety attacks)
