xanax bars causing illness

I was prescribed Xanax 2mg bars again for extreme anxiety! I have withdrawan from xanax twice in a matter of 2 years. I can't take them anymore! They are making me sick. Can anyone tell me why? My Dr is giving me 2 one mg daily now and that isn't working either. Should I take clonopin again? It seems to work better! My symptoms from xanax are sores on my body that don't heal and extreme fatigue and headaches. I took a clonopin the other day, 1 one mg. and I had more energy, no headaches and my anxiety was controlled longer. Does anybody know why xanax is now making me sick? ## Hello, Sue! How are you? I'm sorry about the problems you're having. Our bodies change with time, as we age, so it may be that Xanax is just no longer the right medication to help you. I've...

xanax and grapefruit
144 Replies RSS
What happens if You mix Xanax with grapefruit? ## Sorry, I have removed the incorrect information to avoid future confusion. Xanax DOES react with grapefruit, it increases the concentration of it in your body, which can result in your having to high a dose of the Xanax in your body for too long a period of time. ## Grapefruit juice does interact with alprazolam (Xanax), but not to a great degree. The interaction typically is NOT considered dangerous for normal low to moderate dosage users. When is question, simply call the pharmacy that filled your prescription and ask. Or, ask your doctor. ## think of grapefruit juice as an enzyme highway system for your body that just built more roads and since there is more roads to the brain, more can be metabolized. Rather than taking a bunch to ge...

Refilling my valid Xanax prescription early
372 Replies RSS
I only see one doctor and he gives me a 3 month supply of xanax. When I went the last time he wrote me out a prescription but I still had two refills. I had a friend and her husband passed away and I gave her some of mine thinking I would have no problem re-filling the prescription. I had sense enough not to go to the same pharmacy and not to give my insurance information. So I go to this small drug store by my house and I had to fill out paperwork such as dob, name and my DL #. Well they paged me to the front of the store and advised me that it was 7 days to early for them to re-fill. So my question is where can I go to re-fill a prescription that is valid written by the same doctor. I only tried one place, I'm guessing they must have a data base if you try and refill your prescrip...

I suffer from severe panic attacks on a daily basis. im a perfect example of a person that needs medicine and is unable to get it because of so many people abusing prescription drugs.

So if any1 knows a doctor in the monmouth county area of new jersey that will prescribe me xanax please let me know...thank u ## Actually, part of your problem is that you are so convinced that you need that specific medication and are already insisting you will need it for life. This will automatically make doctors wary of prescribing it, because, even though you may n...

i need to understand what is the strongest benzo

What is the weakest and strongest Benson between Xanax klonopin and ativan ## Hi amber, I may not have conclusive information, but based on what I could gather from other people's experience, the most potent one is said to be Xanax, followed close-behind by Klonopin, and then Ativan. Ironically in the exact order you listed them as. Hopefully someone else on here with personal experience can verify the accuracy of this, but to the best of my knowledge it is what it is. :) I hope this helps! ## Benzo strength as follows from strongest to weakest.. Clonazepam (klonopin) Alprazolam (xanax) Diazepam (valium) Lorazepam (ativan) These are just the 4 main prescribed benzodiazepines..there are several more including librium and others.. Hope this helps.. P.S. Xanax has the shortest "hal...
