Is Ativan more effective than lexotan?

In terms of effectiveness - everyone responds differently. I have tried both and currently switch between the two. Lexotan : - I get a better deeper sleep - Acts longer - I don't have a groggy next morning Xanax : - Need to take more of it - sometimes wake up depressed or in middle of night and find I need to take more of it - Mixed with alcohol...don't go there. It will mess you up. I don't condone abuse of benzos...but Xanax and alcohol can lead you down a very dark path. Take my advice don't drink and take xanax.

Does xanax and Ativan show up the same on a probation officers urine test?

Yes they will. They are both in the class of drugs classified as BENZODIAZEPINES. You may also want to add the following "Benzo's" [this is the slang for a Benzodiazepine] to the list of this same group of drugs. These will all show up as a Benzodiazepine because they test for the "chemical group".....not the individual Benzo. Below is the Brand, followed by the generic name. I would be careful with these even IF NOT on probation: Lexotan, bromazepam: Librium, chlordiazepoxide: Klonopin, clonazepam: Tranxene, clorazepate: Valium, diazepam: Rohypnol, flunitrazepam: ProSom, estazolam: Dalmane, flurazepam: Paxipam, halazepam: Dormonoct, loprazolam: Ativan, lorazepam: Mogadon, nitrazepam: Serax, oxazepam: Doral, quazepam: Restoril, temazepam: Halcion, triazolam:

Can you overdose on cyclobenzaprine?

Yes, though fatal overdoses on most Benzodiazepines are rare. In general though, the hypnotic(anti insomnia) benzodiazepines are much more toxic compared to the anxiolytic(anti anxiety) benzo's. Some of the more potent hypnotic benzo's have been fatal on their own in moderate doses. Long acting low potency anxiolytic benzo's such as Diazepam(Valium), Chlordiazepoxide(Librium), Prazepam(Reapam) and Clorazepate(Tranxene) are the least toxic. The moderate acting more potent anxiolytic benzos such as Bromazepam(Lexotan), Oxazepam(Seresta), Lorazepam(Temesta), Alprazolam(Xanax) and Clonazepam(Rivotril) are more toxic, but still not as toxic as any of the hypnotic benzo's. The long acting, low potency hypnotic benzo Flurazepam(Dalmadorm) is the least toxic of the hypnotic benzo's, and the moderately acting moderate to high potency hypnotic benzo's such as Nitrazepam(Mogadon), Temazepam(Normison), Flunitrazepam(Rohypnol) and Lormetazepam (Loramet/Noctamid) are pretty much the most toxic of all Benzo's, and are the most often the cause of fatal overdoses, even when taken on their own. Probably the most toxic of them all are the short acting Benzo's, such as Brotizolam(Lendormin), Triazolam(Halcion) and Midazolam(Dormicum).
