Will be asking my psychiatrist for this medication. I used it AS NEEDED, not every day and I cut the .5mg in half to .25mg and it's plenty strong. I have a history of PTSD, with Anxiety/Panic Disorder. I had an infected tooth with abscess and my dentist knows of my anxiety issues and gave me a script for a few tablet of Xanax. Unfortunately, I went on to take Xanax for another 3 years, until my body had a massive breakdown and I ended up in the ER. It's almost 2 years since my last Xanax and I am almost back to normal. Turned an outgoing person into a paranoid mess for years. It is increasingly important that our alternative practitioners continue to do neurotransmission testing to find out which anti-depresanats, SSRI and other work best with an individual's body chemistry. This medication as been a life saver for me, literally! It was the withdrawal symptoms from stopping Xanax. But sleep is sooo important to our overall health that I will use these meds when I need to. When going thru a lot of stress I will take .25 in the afternoon and .5 at night for a week or two then switch to .5 only once a day until my situation gets better. I have tripped and fallen three times on this medicine and really banged up my knees. I use it rarely when I wake up in the middle of the night. I prefer to do other things, try 5HTP, GABA, meletonin, chamomile tea etc. Dimly, the California teacher remembered bending over the sink, trying to swallow water. According to the clock, that had been more than an hour ago. She fumbled for her phone but couldn't think clearly enough to text for help."I felt these horrible jolts running through my head and body; I couldn't stop jerking," she recalled. "Then I began seeing stuff that wasn't there, creepy-crawly things. I didn't know what was happening, but I worried I might be dying."The previous morning Jenna, then 33, had inexplicably woken up shaking."I'm usually pretty confident and outgoing, but I felt like I couldn't leave my apartment," she said. My boss noticed the shaking and was concerned; I told him I wasn't sure what it was and I went home early."There, things got worse. Her twitching intensified, and she grew increasingly confused.

After a long battle with severe depression as a college student & suffering from the terrible effects of Zoloft then to find out I had severe Hypothyroidism (Hashimotos) I then found myself in the ER one night on vacation thinking I was having a seizure. I thought I was dying or having a heart attack because I had never felt that way before. Come to find out I had panic disorder, & Xanax was a life saver. I was really anxious to take Xanax at first because of bad reputation and always hearing of abuse but if you actually need it & take it for the right reasons, it’s a god sent from heaven. I started off with 0.5 twice a day plus as needed if panic episodes were and, and now I only take them when absolutely necessary! 10/10 recommend and the generic is so cheap with insurance.""Do not be afraid to try this medicine!! The stigma of this drug caused me to avoid it for about 15 years. The following information is NOT intended to endorse drugs or recommend therapy. I have been to every dr and emergency room late at night, sick to my stomach, my chest feeling heavy and my head heavy and fuzzy, can't focus, dizzy, hot, tingling feeling numbness my face, my lips, my arms and everyone says it's anxiety or a panic attack. While these reviews might be helpful, they are not a substitute for the expertise, skill, knowledge and judgement of healthcare practitioners in patient care."Do not use these daily or you'll become addicted. I feel so alone in this and I'm scared that there is something really wrong with me and the dr's are just not finding it. They are great for the occasional anxiety as they work fast. I feel hopeless I hope the xanax will help do something. But the half life is so very very short that you can easily start going into withdrawals after a few days. I can't function in society and I'm tired of faking that I'm ok when I'm dying inside does anyone else feel like this or am I just crazy.""I've had severe anxiety all of my life manifesting in different forms. I have been so scared to take it due to the fact I have taken stuff as a teen that made me feel really out of it and depressed. I'm 31 years old got married in June to a man who doesn't believe in anxiety so it makes me feel worse. Good Luck.""Hey there I'm new to taking xanax and to this site.
