I lost my job and insurance a few months back, I've been taking xanax for over 9 years,6 mg a day, and had to stop cold turkey, (thanks obuma) I've noticed a huge change in my life and even ended up in the ER 2xs, the doctors said its because I've been on them for so long and stopping em just like that is very dangerous as I have found out(lost councisness while driving) how long will this continue to effect me? I have resorted to the black market but fear I'll get arrested, and my dr. wont even let me pay cash for a office visit to get a Rx, any helpfull insight in this nightmare???
