costco is the cheapest if you're not using insurance, and you can look up prices on their website.

those two meds are not really interchangeable, so i'd want to take what works best for my symptoms over what's cheaper.

I agree. Talk to your pharmacist-about the 1mg of each. I have taken both and they are very siimilar. I recall that the Xanax worked for a few hours and effect started 15 min after taking. With the Ativan it took little longer to kick in but lasted longer.

Do not think either are too pricy. In 20 years- I have relied on anti-anxiety meds to get me through the bipolar roller coaster

On a scale of 1-10. I rank it a 10+. Never leave home without them.
