 5  Depressive anxiety It can make one a bit tired if you either take too high a dosage or have not taken it in several days. I take it as need (usually 1 or 2 times per week). It completely makes me feel normal, calm, and peaceful. All anxiety felt in the area of my solar plexus vanishes. Xanax is not addictive as some have written, but one can become psychologically dependent. Unless one has panic attacks or extreme anxiety, .25 or .50 mg once maybe twice a day should be very sufficient for the vast majority of people. My physician prescribed .50 mg up to three times per day. The most I ever took was 1 mg once or twice when my anxiety was high. It really helps with my depression as well, and the affect lasts about 24 hours for me. Some begin feeling anxious in 3-8 hours after initial dosage. M 54 1 years

 1  Anxiety/Stress For anyone out there trying to seek an escape from life's problems, please don't take this. You'll ruin you're life. Not only will you grow a literally deadly dependence of this drug(whether you think you will or not) but it will almost completely erase your memory from the previous night/day. If you take this with alcohol then you will most definitely regret this as it is not like any other medication with alcohol. This will completely floor you and you WILL do something that risks your life or others. Xanax is helpful IF you actually have severe stress/anxiety problems. I know someone out there reading this doesn't fit that criteria and wants a good high. This isn't a good high. Save your life and take this very, very sparingly. M 21 5 weeks

 5  anti-anxiety/panic/depression nothing 8 past years were prescribed 2mg 4x a day before that started at .25 @ 20 years ago here and their for anxiety and body built tolerance over years. Works great but I hate to see newbies get addicted and tolerance build up. I'm said cause a detox dr got me down to 4mg a day but I don't feel anything. we all have our issues and are different. I need my 8 mg at times..sad but true "like metalica said" Klonopin also isn't bad and works longer again take it when needed not for a regular regimine unless your dr tells you. my dr told me and look where I ended up. You really need to be your own eyes and ears. I was a healthy teen with supplements for bodybuilding,etc..then I saw a phychiartrist and that .25 turned into hell besdes him using another off lable drug to treat my depression social aniexty issue and that famous drug way oxycodone got me up to 80mg a day then told me go detox and let me tell you what hell I went through... If I can help educate just one of you I will feel like I did justice. You think a dr u can trust???? I don't know anymore. I must omit I felt very well but was in a whole state of denial with those 2 mixtures. anyone going thru or have similar experiences feel free to email me. Namaste!!!! M 40 20 years

 5  Anxiety Attacks Social Situations i have never had a side effect. i have taken this off and on for 7 years and my life is better because of it. If you take the drug only as needed and dont abuse it, it is a godsend. People, some of these reviews have to be made up. such as i took .5 once a day for a week and almost died...really. i have quit cold turkey several times and never ever had a problem. Dont be scared of a drug that can fix a problem, be scared if you abuse it. NOTHING is good for you if you take to much. I have piece of mind knowing in case of a panic attack I have a simple solution. F 55 7 years

 1  anxiety After taking this for awhile, I developed chronic insomnia and couldn't eat or taste. I lost 50 lbs in 2 months. Never suspected Xanax was the cause. I am now emotionless. My psychiatrist sent me to sleep studies and all types of tests. He said Xanax wouldn't do this. Go to Benzo Buddies.org. Do not take for more then 2 weeks. You'll become an addict. It will make your original anxiety worse. When I stopped sleeping, I was actually in withdraw, although I didn't stop medication. Your body builds a tolerance fast. You'll have to do an expensive hospital detox ($7K cash) and you'll still be screwed up for years. XANAX is a POISON and it will destroy you, you family, your finances. This is no joke and I am sane (although the damage done to me is overwhelming). Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac says Xanax destroyed 8 years of her life. Xanax permanently changes how your brain works. Google benzo, gaba, receptor and anxiety to find out. M 52 2 years

 5  panic attacks/generalized anxiety no adverse side effects Klonopin is too easily and quickly habituated to, and doesn't break the blood/brain barrier for an entire hour. Valium is far more sedating but just doesn't do the trick for panic/anxiety. A combination which I am now on of 3 mg of Xanax XR 2 times a day and Xanax 1 mg 3 times a day in between is ideal. The Xanax doses in the middle relieve quite rapidly my panic/anxiety, and the morning and evening doses of Xanax XR provide me with an undercurrent of long-term day/night-long anxiety/panic relief. Do not expect sedation, but then again, that is not why I take these drugs. Xanax and Xanax XR trump all of the other benzos barnone. M 30 6 months

I have only used 10 pills in total over the past 12 months. I can see how people could become addicted to it because the effects are very calming. I try to exercise and do other activities to keep my mind healthy and only take Xanax when I know I'm going to be in an overwhelming situation. One .5 mg pill works within about 20 min and lasts 4 - 6 hours for me. M 40 1 years

 4  Anxiety/restlessness This medicine helped me with my anxiety and sleep when i had racing thoughts and no sleep. Its a slippery slope though. The lowest dose can feel like the highest when first taking. Not something to take every day. I reccomend never taking more thsn 2 days in a row to not build tolerance. Never had issues with withdrawl on it 6 months. Just dont take it every day. If needed everyday look else where for longer lasting like clozepam. For quick desperate relief a few times a week or month it can work well, but used more it doesnt work and will just make your anxiety worse with a new addiction. M 30 7 months

 5  Situational Anxiety, Panic Mild fatigue When facing a difficult task or criticism, my mind tends to freeze up and anxiety spikes to an uncontrollable heights. Only 1/2 of 0.5mg pill keeps me from loosing it totally in front of others and gives me back good control of my emotions. In an extremely stressful situations, I add another half of the pill. It takes about 15 min for X. to kick in and lasts close to 8 hours. I have tried several antidepressants with rather unpleasant side effects and Xanax seems to be the only med that works for me.

 5  head injury stress I felt like not like killing my self anymore 2 days after car accident i lost my mind, i was traveling in a Jesus freak town, at church they told me god would fix it, these self appointed experts tried to take me off my Xanax, and i almost had a heart attack from the stress. As for all these comments-you are you, they are them, i took Zanax 5 years at 6 mills a day, i tappered my self with zero discomfort down to 1 mg a day. learn your body, learn your mind, you are no one else but you, even throw the friggin TV out if reading wholesome books seems more your style. in this country you have to make your own culture, war, grave yard art, and music that goes no where can make you worse. Let no person part you from the truth so you may have a friend. all my side effects went away after 3 months. walking 3 miles a day in a beautiful area kept my health fine, and my sex life stayed fine walk in the woods, stay close to beauty, watch thyroid, Xanax can make it FOR ME it is great stuff. for you it may be very bad..

 5  Generalized Anxiety Disorder Don't drink alcohol on this drug unless you intend to black out. Xanax has helped me in many situations that I would normally lose it in. I'm an extremely nervous/volatile person and Xanax has been very useful especially in my line of work dealing with high maintenance egotistical television execs. I would not be as successful or able to cope with half of the milestones I've reached in my life thus far. There have been times where I've begun to take too much but I recognize when this is beginning to happen and cut back. F 26 5 years

 1  Anxiety panic attacks It doesn't matter why a person would be prescribed this medication. Never allow your dr to fool you because with long time use it caused me depression lack of sexual sensation or want also it caused me to not have my period for a whole year and half . I would not ask my worse enemy to take this . I'm now working with my dr to taper me off and even when you tamper off it is so hard even with medical help. But I'm trust in God to help me regain my life and my health back. I am praying to be off Xanax it's ruined my life. Please use a different medication don't fall victim to Xanax F 31 7 years

 5  GAD (and occasional insomnia) 1. Alcohol GREATLY increases effects. Took .5 mg at 3PM. At 7PM had a glass of wine. Almost passed out. I use Xanax only once or twice a month for Anxiety and/or insomnia. It is a great help. However, I have found that if I take it too often then I develop a dependence and also need to take more to get the same effect. To avoid this, I keep very close tabs on how much I take and how often. If, I need to take it more often then it means I am not coping well and need to go back on an anti-depressant/ psychotherapy.

 5  Insomnia, occasional anxiety Some sluggish feeling in the morning, goes away after an hour or so after showering or a cup of coffee. A little memory recall issues the first month or so taking it, that went away though, now I notice no issues. I did a ton of research out of fear of addiction, where I believe a lot of people go wrong is thinking they need a higher dose when really their body has simply adjusted to the medication but is still getting a proper effect. After a month or so I wouldn't "zonk" right out from my 0.5MG pill, but instead of freaking out and insisting upon a higher dosage, I just rolled with the flow and soon realized that while it took me 15-20 minutes longer to fall asleep, I was still falling into a nice deep sleep and staying that way all night. It's when you increase your dose, start to build that higher and higher tolerance that you run into addiction issues. I also skip it on nights when I feel really tired, for example if I've worked outside a lot on the yard, etc. I don't feel tied to taking it "or else". When I take it for anxiety I always wait until I really fee like there is no other option. It's a personal choice - no one holds a gun to your head to to pop that pill. F 40 1 years

 5  PTSD Drowsiness, short-term memory problems, minor loss of balance This drug has been a godsend. I started having severe anxiety after returning from the Gulf War. I was diagnosed with PTSD and placed on every SSRI and SSRI-like drug. None of them worked. For 15 years I lived with flashbacks, intense anxiety, and killer side effects from the SSRIs (they are poison. Avoid them). In 2006, I finally said "ENOUGH!" I did my homework and I knew I was risking a terrible addiction, but life was so horrible that I was willing to take the risk to get some relief. Though I suffer from the side effects mentioned, Xanax has given me back at least some of my life. I am addicted, but I went into it with my eyes open knowing that could happen. I can do at least some of the things I enjoy again, and can function on my job (which was in jeopardy before Xanax). I have not needed a dosage increase since I started the drug, so I'm not developing a tolerance. My advice to you is this: try everything else before you try Xanax. But if nothing has worked, I mean absolutely nothing including non-medicinal things like psychotherapy, and if you cannot function any more due to your anxiety, and you have no life left, then go on Xanax. But do so knowing you may be on it for a long, long time and may go through hell getting off. In other words, Xanax is a LAST RESORT only. M 55 7 years

 1  Anxiety I was prescribed Xanax for situational anxiety, or one or two times a year moderate anxiety. Something I now know I could have handled myself.. I wish I had! It started off GREAT, worked wonderful for so many years.. I didn't know the Devil was at my back! I started not feeling well, getting some depression, worsening of anxiety, I Ended up in the Psych ward..I unknowlingly became an ACCIDENTAL ADDICT . I was in tolerance for 1-1/2 years, Dr's. increasing my dose, which only helped a few months at a time. I'm a 59 female, had to w/d from the evil little bastard pill. OMG!! I cannot or nor would ever in a million years contemplate or believe anyone telling me what they had or have gone thru in benzo w/d, if i had not experienced it myself.. I have had heroin addicts on the psych floor tell me they would never put another Xanax in their mouths because of how horrendous and LONNNGGGG the w/d and recovery was!These are people that have gone on and off Heroin and coke MANY times, becau The class of drug SHOULD NOT BE GIVEN BY DOCTOR"S AT ALL.

 1  Anxiety Increased anxiety, fear, terror, development of phobias, muscle problems, dizziness, caused me to become completely disabled...the list of side effects is too long to list. This drug is pure POISON!!! It destroyed my life so fast I didn't even know what was happening to me. Of course the doctors never told me how bad this drug was, how insidious. I lost my life to Xanax and am now off of it but the damage has been done..literally, the damage has been done to my nervous system and my body is trying to heal. It takes so long. Do not even be tempted with this drug unless you are into playing Russian Roulette. Believe me when I say, the pre-existing anxiety I had was a cakewalk compared to the terrors of the Xanax experience. F 35 2.5 years

Symptoms were tachycardia, chest pain/pressure, major GI pain, nausea, cramps, diarrhea, skin rash, itching, insomnia, rebound anxiety, burning eyes, tingling in hands and feet, headaches, joint/muscle aches, fatigue.

 5  Depression, Anxiety A little tired (sluggish) in the morning after taking Xanax to help me sleep at night. Other than that my experience has been very good taking Xanax. I was prescribed Xanax after losing both my parents within a 18 month period. I found that as I got older I was less able to cope with stress at work and stressful situations. I was becoming depressed and had bouts with anxiety.Xanax has been a life saver for me. I am able to take it when needed and have had little if any side affects. M 59 3 years

 5  Panic disorder with agoraphobia Sedation I was prescribed Xanax to help calm me down whenever I would have severe panic attacks in public and needing something to work quickly. I used to go to the ER afraid I was having a heart attack and that got expensive real quick. I kept the Xanax on my person as an emergency backup in case an attack hit, and sometimes just knowing it was there in my pocket if I needed it helped and I didn't have to actually use it. When I did use it, it helped stop the panic attack quickly and enabled me to regain my composure. On the rare occasions I took it at night, it made me very sedated and complacent and I slept heavily. This could easily become addictive. Now I still have a script for it but I rarely ever take it. Great for panic attacks, but be careful. M 28 2 years

 5  Anxiety Ive struggled to control anxiety over the years. During the really bad times I turned to Zoloft and Celexa. These days my life is more in order so I don't need a daily medication. I have been using this drug for 10 years for various anxiety issues as needed. I can honestly say that I can still take half of a .25 and feel normal 80 percent of the time without needing more. I never allowed myself to take it more than 3 days in a row without a break fearing an addiction or building up a tolerance like many of the people I know. If used correctly it can certainly change your life for the better. I recommend it to anyone that doesn't have addiction issues that suffers from anxiety. F 34 10 years

 5  Anxiety Sleepiness I was prescribed Xanax for anxiety and though was allowed 1-2 daily as needed, I have chosen to only take half to one pill as needed when I start to feel overly anxious. I have also tried to resolve my anxiety by participating in a cognitive behavioral therapy clinical trial, as well as personal research on that method of treatment. When I start to feel anxious, I first try to calm myself with CBT and that usually works. However, there are times when no amount of mind-over-matter will calm my racing heart and half a Xanax does the trick. I'll take a full pill if I'm flying anywhere. I understand the medicine can be addictive, however, anxiety can be treated in so many ways that I highly recommend trying a non-medicinal approach to try for lasting results and using the Xanax on an as-needed basis. Doing so eliminates the risk of dependency as you learn ways to calm your anxiety without medicine. Using Xanax (or any other drug) as a supplement to behavioral therapy or even talk therapy, rather than as a substitute, is, in my opinion, an effective way to address anxiety. I hope to some day be skilled enough at CBT and at being able to recognize and avoid my triggers (when reasonable) that I can eliminate the need to medicate. Until then, half a Xanax every other week or so hasn't given me a single side effect and I haven't had a single thought or action that hints at addiction. F 41 2 years

 5  Bipolar panic and anxiety disorder Xanax has been a blessing to me. I struggled with severe panic and anxiety attacks. The take your breath, feel like you're having a heart attack kind. After taking a Xanax I would feel much calmer within 20 minutes. Some days are worse than others so I may not have to take my entire prescribed dose every day, but I always make sure I take a couple to prevent anxiety from coming and prevent withdrawal from happening.

 1  Anxiety Depression, serious addiction, worsened anxiety over time. AVOID THIS DRUG! yes, xanax will calm you down but it will also make you completely numb, dependent and over time even MORE anxious as you work to manage the new anxiety of addiction. My life literally became me waiting for my next dose, and panicking that I would lose my pills or somehow not be able to take them, because the withdrawal from this drug is so immediate and so harsh that it is not worth taking to begin with. The only country in the world that prescribes benzos for more than a 2 weeks period is in the USA. There is a reason for that, and it is Big Pharma. If you want to be a drug-addicted shell of a person then by all means take this drug. But I promise you over time it will destroy your life and your brain. PLEASE AVOID! There are other options for anxiety that aren't slowly poisoning you. 31 2 years

 1  Panic Attacks/Anxiety This drug is a monster. This drug still whispers to me. I have been off of Xanax for 3 months now, but I still find myself thinking of them, EVEN DREAMING of them. I was numb the whole time I was taking them and didn't realize truly how numb and insensitive I was until I got off them. Unfortunately, I didn't realize that stopping them cold turkey was so horrible. I truly just wanted to die for the first 3 days I came off them and didn't feel normal until 2 weeks after. Yet, they are so addicting I don't know if I'd turn one down today; I've just stopped myself from seeing a doctor to get them. Learn to cope through life with God. F 20 6 months

After suffering frequent panic attacks that put me in the ER followed by agoraphobia (fear of leaving my house), I was put on this at 0.5 MG twice a day. Simply put, it saved me from a life of living in fear of having another attack all day and finally allowed me to leave my home to go do regular things like shopping or going to the movies. Sometimes it would make me tired, but drinking a caffeinated soda or a cup of tea or coffee always helped. I experienced no side effects other than sweet relief from my crippling anxiety. Now I only take it as-needed when I feel I'm going to have a bad day or I have to face a big challenge, like going out of town. I haven't had to use any for a while because I think just the confidence of having it in my pocket is enough to ward off any anxiety. It works quickly, especially if you let it dissolve under the tongue (be sure to drink a soda or something with it while doing that, though, because the taste is horrible). In short, I am so thankful for this drug and now I have my life back. M 27 3 years

 5  Panic attack and anxiety Tingling in legs in arms when it wears off but I was so scarred to take this pill because of the bad reviews I has seen but after 2 weeks of thinking I was going crazy or about to die I had to take something and Xanax it was I only take 1/4 of the pill I don't want to fall to sleep just bring the attack down so I could function I think the reason some people get addicted is because there dosage was to high to begin with so maybe it u start with just a pinch of the pill you might not get addicted to it but don't get me wrong I do understand how someone could because when u take the pill u have no worrys at all.... I hope this message could help someone with what they are going through I had never experienced anything like axienty or panic until I turned 31 and I was living hell F 31 2 weeks

 4  Anxiety, Panic Attacks Drowsiness, inceased appetite, weight gain, depression, "high" feeling. I loved it and it stopped my panic attacks and anxiety. But this is very addictive and I had to quit because I was abusing them. Don't become addicted and this will be a godsend for you. F 18 8 months

 5  Social Anxiety Sleepiness Xanax is great for my social anxiety. I take one or two pills about an hour before an anxiety inducing situation and I feel calm and collected - I don't get sweaty and anxious like I normally would. Unlike others I don't get any euphoric feeling from it, actually quite the opposite, I usually want to go home early from an event as I'm not having much fun. Drinking on Xanax is dangerous as I don't ever feel drunk or even tipsy, so I will drink way more than I normally would or should - I don't recommend ever drinking while taking this medication. Overall I think this medicine works very well for me. F 34 2 years
