Lorazepam vs. Clonazepam(Klonapin)

Which works better for anxiety?
Does either help a little with depression?

I like Klonopin better. But everyone is different.

Klonopin stays in your system longer.

I'm not sure if it helps with depression.

I am told that Klonapin is better . It does stay in your system longer and it does not make you as groggy and sluggish. However, everyones system is different. This drug is a godsend to me b/c I used to shake uncontrolably...and now I am on it and I don't get the shakes as much or people are not as used to it.

I've always taken clonazepam -- I believe that it is a long acting benzo compared to lorazepam (few hours) -- I read that clonazepam can actually worsen depression.

Klonopin worked better for me-Lorazepam did nothing.

Benzo's are a depressant and make depression worse if taken on a regular basis. They are for anxiety. God bless

Buspar is a good med for anxiey. It is taken like an antidepressant. You won't get the sedating effects of a benzo. It does take time to work. In my case I could tell in 4 days but it took 2-3 weeks to kick in completely. God bless
