I have been on 1mg/ 4 times daily for 5 years now. When I am anxious, nervous, having a panic attack or a break down, Xanax does put me at ease.

this medication has saved my life. I know people are like ohhh xanax, so addicting, but I was having anxiety so bad I could not leave my house and just kept getting worse.

I have been taking benzodiazepines for 7 yrs, I started out on Xanax which worked well. My Dr switched me to Ativan which worked faster during an attack but the calming effect did not last as long as the Xanax. I have tried Tranxene, Klonipins, and Valium. I have been back on Xanax now for almost three yrs and it works but to be honest the Valium helped more and with less drowsiness and less overa ... Show Full Comment
