Can anyone tell me what Xanax is for, what the side effects of either short term or long term use are, and what other drugs might interact with it? I would appreciate any help anyone can give. Thank you.
short term usually only couple wks to months depending on doctor lots drugs interact with it like anti depressents cig smoking and drinking ,grapfruit xanax is very addictive mentally and physically used longterm even in short term you have to detox off it slowly or end up like me a mess and no doctors will help ... its for anxiety or pain attacks helps calm you down if your considering it dont valium be better easier to get off of still not good though trust me prob worst thing ever happened to me ...
hi beanmarie, i was prescribed it a few years ago for; palpitations,anxiety,racing heart beats while sleeping... after a day or two, i had to let it go, i could not function normally, then it took days for me to get rid of dragging i felt, just try to be careful with these type of meds that will give you a new life, ask your doctor can you ake melantonin... it is a vitamin, used to relax you... it is natural... also cammomile tea rite aide stores,cvs,supermarkets have these 2 items, ask the doc first- because i do not know your medical issues. and take a break from your own self meaning don't do too much thinking about a issue, it turns into anxiety attacks, heart issues and thats what i am dealing with now, slow thinking... slow responses to what i think, keeps me leveled, no psyche meds- but must take blood pressure meds, you can even go to a cardiologist let them give you a stress test and see exactly what type of meds to take to keep the heart running slower and easy... just wanted to share that with you..take care..vtech10
