XANAX:
Why is Xanax prescribed?
Xanax is a tranquilizer used in the short-term relief of
symptoms of anxiety
or the treatment of anxiety disorders.
Anxiety disorder is marked by unrealistic
worry or
excessive fears and concerns. Anxiety
associated with
depression is also responsive to Xanax.
Xanax and the extended-release formulation,
Xanax XR, are also used in the treatment
of panic disorder,
which appears as unexpected panic attacks
and may be
accompanied by a fear of
open or public places called
agoraphobia.
Only your doctor can diagnose panic
disorder and best
advise you about treatment.
Some doctors prescribe Xanax to
treat alcohol withdrawal, fear of open spaces
and strangers, depression, irritable
bowel syndrome,
and premenstrual syndrome.

MY NOTE: Weren't these all mentioned in Zoloft?
DID I REALLY NEED TO BE ON THIS DRUG?

OK READ THESE and compare with ZOLOFT!!!

What side effects may occur?
Side effects cannot be anticipated.
If any
develop or change
in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as
possible.
Only your doctor can determine
if it is safe for you to continue taking Xanax.
Your doctor should periodically reassess the need
for this drug.

MY NOTE: One time I was supposed to
drive three minutes
by street to pick up my daughters.
I had suddenly became aware that I was
driving on the freeway and had no clue
of where I was. I got off the freeway
and went to
a gas station to find out where I was.
I was 25 minutes from home! 25 minutes
I had spent on the freeway without a
clue that I was there, or any recollection
of getting in it or why? I also had WEIGHT CHANGES,
I went from 140 lbs to 285 lbs!
In about 4 months time.
