I have generalized anxiety disorder, major depressive disorder, depersonalization disorder, attention deficit disorder, and post traumatic stress disorder. I am perscribed to and take .25 mg of alprazolam 4 times daily to feel "normal" it has been about a month now and everything seems a lot better. However before this I was self medicating with alcohol for about 5 years everyday. Not drinking anymore and taking my medication I feel normal again. Does anyone think this could have bad long term effects or this is abnormal?
