Today is 7 weeks clean of Xanax...cold turkey. It has been a real mofo. The good days outnumber the bad ones but I honestly need something to help with my anxiety....I can no longer go it alone. Xanax had some really bad side effects for me.....weight loss, increased anger, mental fog and many others.
My question is this. Does anyone here have any good reports about Klonopin or Valium? My doctor will only give me xanax which I know is short acting...I need something that lasts longer.
What are the side effects short term and long term? Is it worse than xanax when trying to quit? Any help would be appreiated.
