What are your feelings about Xanax? My doctor prescribed me a small dosage for a little bit...anyone else take it? Does it help?

I have taken it before many times. It really helps with Anxiety and gives a general calm feeling- it also gave me ( don't know if I am the only one) a I could care less feeling and I know I appeared to be one lazy person because I didn't want to do anything. I couls also go to sleep on it but it wasn't real good at keeping me asleep. When coming off of it, it was hard and I would get REAL panicky

Sure it helps if you use it for its intended purpose. Helps a ton. If you're in a panic situation its like the "emergency - break glass" pill.

But it also has a dark side; the relief you get from it comes back to collect a heavy fee in terms of addiction. Personally I find the benzodiazapine class of drugs to be the MOST addicting class of drugs. Of course, your mileage may vary.

Take it only when you really need it and you're in the clear.
