Very addictive!!! If you ever start relying on this drug it is impossible to stop without help. Never stop taking xanax "cold turkey", especially if you have been taking them for a long period of time. The side effects are harsh. Sometimes even seizures. The xanax is very effective, but I wish I would have tried a different medication.

Ive been prescribed xanax for panic attacks.This medicine has saved my life, and helped me become considerably less afraid of leaving the house. As with all medicines,stay under close watchful eye of a professional on consistent basis.This drug should be carefully taken to watch for any addiction potential.
