I suffer from anxiety and panic attacks. I have been taking 0.25mg of Xanax ONLY when I really need to. Driving is a “trigger” for for my anxiety, hence, I take one pill before driving. I find it helps me to relax, but I am still alert and focused. Without taking Xanax when I drive, I have been so nervous, I have almost had several accidents. Does anyone else taking Xanax while driving?
Taking Xanax before driving?

what you're referring to is called OVI (Operating a Vehicle Impaired) and you can have your driving privileges taken away if you are caught while doing it... I pretty sure you were warned by the doctor that originally prescribed the medication, also most pharmacist will pull you aside and discuss the side effects with you, and I am also more than sure that the prescription itself has a sticker right on it that clearly states do not to operate a vehicle after taking this medication... you are not only endangering yourself, but others by doing this unsafe and illegal act... I have my son drive me around so that I am not endangering anyone else because of my impaired state after taking them
