Thank you for posting a query.

Look, anxit contains alprazolam group of drug. Whereas epitril contains clonazepam.

Clonazepam is more potent drug than anxit. It is more effective.

As you were taking anxit for last 13 years, this change will provide some good effect overall.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know, if you have any more question.
