If you have tons of both. But early on speed potions are something you're rationing out for emergencies or killing uniques - unless you have plenty, then you can use them for every encounter.

With the full-los area effect version it becomes a good option in more varieties of situation, and confusion is even better.

(All that applies to classic confuse/slow)
