I started xanax xr .5 mg twice a day a couple days ago for anxiety and panic attacks due to stress and depression. I feel tired and foggy all the time. I also am having memory issues. How long does this last and will it go away ?

If I am not mistaken.I think Xanax Extended Release last 24 hours.So you should not be feeling any anxiety at all.Though I am not competely sure on this one.The tired/drowsiness should go away in 2 weeks because you have to give your body time to let the medication get in your system.

I take 1MG XANAX XR. Initially I felt like you do but side effects wear off in about a week. You won't notice this huge feeling of happiness or euphoria on this med but you will notice you no longer for anxious throughout the day nor do you think about having panic or anxiety attacks anymore out of the blue. The short lasting XANAX (usually .25mg) is what I carry if I do happen to get anxious and it can't be controlled with my XANAX X, because it's quick acting. VERY rarely do I have to take my immed. effective "emergency" Xanax, though because the XR really keeps my attacks at bay.
