... medications. I'm now on 8 mg of Xanax XR and have been put onto Intuniv for 2 weeks (3 mg). I am feeling more depressed than ever. I have taken this week off work for the first time in 3 years and can't stop feeling so down. I want to cut back on the Xanax but am addicted and will have to do it slowly. But I am really struggling to keep going. My career is seriously being affected and the more I look on the internet the more contradictions come up about these drugs. Can someone help, should I keep going with the Intuniv for longer?
