Clonazepam (Klonopin) is well-known for producing depression or making it worse. Not everyone reacts this way, but a large percentage of people do. Many years ago, clonazepam was studied more closely than it is now. A few studies reported that it produced changes in serotonin function, but they were conflicting with respect to the pharmacology involved.

Lorazepam (Ativan) can work moderately well for anxiety. As long as the dosage isn't too high, I find it to be a very clean drug that doesn't produce sedation or euphoria. It takes the edge off without producing changes in cognition or mood. I don't feel at all "drugged" when taking it. 2 mg three times a day works well for me.

Alprazolam (Xanax) is probably the most potent benzodiazepine for treating anxiety. Unlike lorazepam, it often produces a "laid-back" feeling that some people describe as floating on a cloud. Some people report feelings of euphoria or an antidepressnt effect. All of the benzodiazepines produce various levels of physiological dependence and usually produce withdrawal effects when they are discontinued. However, alprazolam has the greatest potential to be addictive and abused. It is psychologically addictive and can produce strong cravings. However, alprazolam is probably the most potent anxiolytic for people who have more severe anxiety disorders.
