Just prescribed Nivaram (same as Xanax) need advice please!
Doc told me to take .5 mg Nivaram (same as Xanax I'm told) twice daily.

I am scared to because I know this stuff can be highly addictive.  Can I just take it as needed? Or maybe only at night to help with sleep?  I really, really don't want to become dependent but I want to deal with my anxiety disorder.

P.S. I am also on Lexapro 10 mg daily.

Thanks!

Angie,

Are you still on this board? If you can, please contact me. My daughter has all the same symptoms as you and according to her MRA, she may have a small (1.5 mm) aneurysm. We have to wait 2 more weeks (have already waited 2) to talk to the Neurosurgeon and the Neurologist. She has the headaches and hand and feet tingling and falling asleep. She is only 20 and her friend died from one of these 6 months ago and my mother (her grandmother) passed away from one at the age of 53.

I would really like to hear from you if you should happen to get this.

My personal email address is: ***@****

Thanks a lot!!

Gina
