helps me live life without that constant fear and paranoia. I actually try things i normally would have backed out of. No longer extremely nervous around large crowds of people nor do i feel like everyone is looking at me strange either.

Xanax Review
| monamac
this medication is amazing in treating anxiety and panic attacks. Some people claim to have horrible withdrawal coming off. I have been on and off of it for years depending on my stress level. I have always been able to stop taking without a problem. If you experience withdrawal have your doc taper you off the medication.

Don't take this drug! At first it will seem amazing but it's not worth it!!! Getting off of it is the hardest thing I've ever done. The depression it brings is horrible!!!!

| Evil: it does come in pills.
Xanax destroyed my life.

Stay on a low dose for a short time -- heavily weigh decisions to increase your dose. It won't be worth it, I promise.

I have been on xanax for about 10 years prescribed.
They have helped me BIG time, but the effect is wearing off and I'm ready to switch to something else (safely) through my doctor!
