    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...

    I was kidnapped, raped,

    and mentally abused. I was always against pills and people who did them, and I said this to my doctor and my mom. I was having such bad anxiety I got 3 medications one of them being this one. At first it did nothing, so I took one more. I felt warm all over like I was being...

    I take a lot of xanax.

    I take too much xanax. It's presctibed because I'm a real mess, but I've started having facial spasms and it's likely due to the xanax. I knew it was a possibility and with me taking a truckload of it pretty much daily I should have assumed it was highly probable.... and with my...
