i been on klonopin for a few years now and it no longer works last time i talked to my pdoc he just increase to 1mg but didn't help i was on 0.5mg two times a day as needed so basically i been on 1mg i did take it twice before. now i still get anxiety. i need something that will act quickly but will last 4 to 5 hours i don't really need a long acting one. also which is better Xnax or valium ?

That's a question I don't feel qualified to answer because it requires a thorough knowledge of your health and medicine history and professional training.
If the ineffectiveness of the Klonopin is due to Benzodiazepine tolerance - and I have no idea if it is - then it may make no difference as to the choices you presented.
