Diazapam vs alprazolam

Hi all,
I am interested in people’s experiences, preferences with these benzos. I believe .25mg alpraz is roughly equivalent to a 5mg diazapam but has a shorter half life and is out of the system faster - would this mean less “hangover effects” the next day? I have a job that requires my brain to be working… but sometimes I need to take a benzo to dampen down the vertigo.
