    I take .5 twice a day.

    Is that too much and need to worry about it?

    I Need To Be.

    I know I'm going to become dependent, but I'd rather depend on pills to live than not be able to live at all.

    I Feel Like I Need to Cut Or Od On My Xanax.

      I feel like I need to either cut or OD on my xanax... Once again my mother has put herself first.  I just can't take anymore of this and don't think that I can continue to look past all of the pain she causes me just because she is my mother. My dad died of cancer...

    Just Started On It

    Best Part Of My Day

    I love Xanax. It makes me feel so numb and woozy, and nothing matters once I have taken it. The best part of my day is popping that little white pill and feeling everything fall away. In my job I am constantly telling people that it is an evil, dangerous and addictive drug- I...

    Does It Work? Maybe.

    I've been officially on Xanax for about two days. I assume it is somewhat of a low dose... .25-.50 MG up to twice daily as needed. I try not to take more than the 2 .50 tablets a day, but occasionally I feel like I need more, as it doesn't really calm me down so much as make me...
