hi all, I am new here, been going through a little tough time, taking 1/2 peach xanax for 3 days, i am scared of meds, do you think i will be o k and not addited to then just takking that much ina week, ty i am real dumb about meds , never taken much, ty you all
just like punckiemull told you as long as you are taking the xanax as it is directed by your physician then you don't need to be worried, just be sure that you do not just stop taking xanax all at once it's not due to addiction necessarily but your body adjust to recieving that dose and to just stop it all at once can cause a person to seizure. but by just taking this as you are then I don't think you need to be concerned
There is nothing to worry about as long as you are taking the Xanax as needed and following the prescribed amount. This medication can be addictive if taken for a long time. But as long as you are taking as prescribed and not more than you will be ok. After having been on Xanax regularly for some time and you stop abruptly without tapering you can have adverse symptoms like a seizure for example. Take as prescribed and you will be fine.
Marie,You have to sit by yourself and ask " Am I the kind of person who can and likely tend to abuse meds !?If not,just go ahead and sweeeep away the nonsense thoughts.If yes, be careful and often check with your doctor.Alprazolam is wellknown benzo,and should be ok when it is used as directed.Also, you should not worry about it that much because Xanax is scheduled 4 ,and therefore it is not easily obtained or prescribed by your doctor just like that,eg. 'Doc I want som Xanax !'In my opinion,you are not that kind type who tends to seek meds to satisfy their cravings,if otherwise you wouldn't have asked the question here already.(live and don't give a nickle about worries,unless you are at Wallmart.)ace_rick
