Re: Diference between Ativan (Lorazepam) and Klonopin?
Per mg, yes, but that doesn't really matter. At equivalent doeses they should work much the same.
Ativan is short to medium acting, while Klonopin is long-acting (by benzo standards). How much this matters is an individual issue.
I use Xanax (even shorter acting than Ativan), which means I have to take a whole bunch of doses during the day. I personally don't find this to be a problem, though others prefer less frequent dosing and would go insane if they had to pop pills as often as I do.
DEA agents, being on par with Nazi war criminals, should be executed for crimes against humanity. They are guilty of inflicting mass suffering upon legitimate patients.
