Hello-
I have been experiencing heart palpitations lately, and so my doctor prescribed Alprazolam, which I'm supposed to take every 4-6 hours. Immediately after taking them, I start feel a little "loopy." Then, about three hours later, I'm hit with drowsiness that I can't fight. I go out like a light. The medicine stops the heart palpitations for about fours hours, but they then start again once the medicine wears off. After I wake up, I have an incredibly bad headache. I've only been on the alprazolam for about a week now, and I'm not really sure if the side affects are outweighed by the benefits. Can anyone give me some of their experiences on this medicine?

Just to clarify... alprazolam is more commonly known as Xanax.
