    Just Started On It

    Recently my doc gave me a prescription for Xanax. I had been having some pretty bad fits of anxiety at work (just thinking about my job gives me high blood pressure). My first experience with it was very strange: first off, I'm always nervous about new bodily sensations...

    Xanax

    So, I went to the doctor today.  I've been having a difficult time lately with severe, daily headaches.  It has been affecting my mood and my daily life.  I really hate being moody with my students, so I wanted to resolve my headache issue... Anyhow, my doctor...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...
