Anyone switched from Xanax to Ativan?

Has anyone ever just switched from Xanax to Ativan? I am currently taking xanax 0.5mg at bedtime and have been for 10 years. Recently I am not sleeping very well so originally my GP wanted to increase my xanax (which I declined) so his other suggestion was to switch to ativan. Apparently ativan lasts longer. I tried this last night (1 tablet 1mg ativan instead of 1 0.5mg xanax) and feel weird. First off...didn't hardly sleep at all and today nausea and don't feel completely coherent. Is this normal? Or is this withdrawl?? Should I slowly decrease one and increase the other? Any suggestions? Thank you!
