I got back on xanax due to resurgence of panic attacks (I am usually back to them every other year). I took one lastnight to help sleep (1mg), did not sleep restful, and i feel so worn down and hungover today. Is this normal?
Xanax is not really a good sedative to help with sleep if you need an anxiety/sleeping pill it's best to go with something like restoril (temazepam). For natural, herbal help you can try Valerian or Melatonin. Try to only take the Xanax when you ABSOLUTELY need it beecause withdrawal from it can be a killer. Believe me I know I'm in the process of weening off of it I was prescribed 6 1mg a day and tried to stop cold turkey and I wouldn't wish the headache and other symptoms I had on my worst enemy.
