    The ER or XR version is best for a once a day pill.

    I have been on alprazolam extended Release .5 mg for one month now. It has worked well for me, after trying 7 different anti anxiety, pills. It has treated my severe insomnia, and anxiety with light headedness, very well. I feel like my old self. I take one a day at or around noon time. works well for me.

    I have had anxiety ever since I can remember. It used to come and go, but now it's been 7 years. My Dr. wants to start taking me off but I do so well with it and my anti-depressant that I don't want to, I am living not just surviving one day at a time. My Dr. thinks I am addicted but I think she is just against it. What is the big deal? IT WORKS!!

    I have panic attacks and anxiety and this medicine is the greatest thing since sliced bread. I was put on it 13 years ago and since then my doctor has retired, his replacement moved away after 8 years, and his replacement did't believe in prescribing alprozolam and told me to see a shrink. I "fired" her and found another doctor (LNP) who I really liked. After I got insurance I had ... Show Full Comment
