    Xanax The Double Edged Sword

         First of all the street name is BARS. I am not on bars. I have a perscription but here is what I love to hate about Xanax . . .1.) Sleeplessness which is good for getting things done at 1 am but boring if you have nothing to do2.) Exuberence which is to such a height...

    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...

    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...

    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...
