View Full Version : Xanax makes things worse

Has anyone had it where Xanax made them worse? For me, Xanax has not helped me but instead made me more anxious and restless.

I only took Xanax for a short time, and that was for some panic attacks I was having at the time. Fortunately it seemed to work for me just as my Dr had hoped that it would as best I can recall.

I suggest that if you have not done so already that you contact your Dr and let him/her know about this. It sounds like you might be experiencing a paradoxical reaction to it.

Please keep us posted on how everything unfolds concerning this if you can.

I would but I have no way of doing so until tomorrow as she is not there Friday - Sunday and today (Monday) is a holiday.
