I have been on this medication for over ten years now, and the only drawback is that; the dosage must incress every 6 months as my body becomes use to the drug. I'm now on 2mg qid which is a problem to get off of as it is very addictive buy nature, and must be reduced very slowly @0.5mg per every two months. Then must be replaced by another drug within the same class.

I would NEVER recommend Xanax to ANYONE! It is extremely addictive and horrifying to stop taking; the withdrawal from this dangerous drug is the worst thing I have ever experienced. My Dr. overmedicated me over a period of time by increasing the dosage I was taking and I when I stopped taking it, I ended up in the ER and could not eat for days and lost so much weight in such a short time, it was ...
