Xanax XR: a benzodiazepine to remember

A lot of people in the press seem to think benzodiazepines are just addictive drugs that serve no purpose. Some even have the audacity to claim they should be taken off the shelves and that they’re clearly the next “opioid crisis”. I’ve noticed patterns in these claims: no evidence to back them up. Benzos save lives. I don’t know about some of you, but if my benzo were to be taken away; it would ruin my life and quite possibly kill me. I’ve been taking these for over ten years, and I don’t regret it for a second. Xanax XR is definitely my favorite. I take a fairly low dose 1mg twice a day, and my negative thoughts go away. The media can believe what they want, but the thing that kills me is when I meet a med student or young doctor who says they...

interested in xanax xr

I have social anxiety bad. My daughter passed away at the age of 7 from cancer. 3 months after that my second oldest got a hold of a handgun that my boyfriend left laying around and shot herself in the head. Then after that he told me he was going out of town for work for the weekend and never came back. I have social anxiety. I panic whenever I get around crowds of people because my husband kept me locked in the house for almost 2 years. ## I got chronic p.t.s.d. and really bad anxiety most of the time I dont go no where and when I do i go where there is no one around. I worry all the time. I don't eat right i don't sleep much because of the worrying. My doctor won't give me any thing that helps. How can I get xanax Xr ## I can't even think about being in your shoes I...

Xanax 44386 blue football pill

Is this a xanax? I found 2 in my car. I need to know what it is. ## No, this is an over the counter product that is manufactured by LNK International and they list it as containing 25mgs of Doxylamine (NDC 50844-837 among others). It is used for the short-term treatment of insomnia. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possible including nausea, dizziness and dry mouth. Inactive Ingredients: - Anhydrous Dibasic Calcium Phosphate - FD&C Blue No. 1 - Magnesium Stearate - Cellulose, Microcrystalline ## I found some light blue oval pills with a line down the center on one side. And on the other side it has the numbers 44386. It is not coated, and it has the line down the center so it can be split in half if desired. What are they? I've been taking xanax for a long time. Ive nev...

Need Xanax prescription

I need to find a local doctor in Chandler Arizona willing to prescribe Xanax.. I took them years ago but due to many recent tragic circumstances my anxiety is back and worse than ever.. I recently moved here from out of state, please help asap, I feel like I'm going to jump out of my skin or even worse, have a heart attack.. this is BAD! ## Hello, RMB! How are you? I am very sorry about the problems that you're having. However, there is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will not prescribe that I can refer to for you. And due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, you'll need to see a specialist for this type of medication. Do you currently have a PCP that could refer you to someone? That would most likely be the fast and easy way to find ...

Trying to get off Xanax.

I've been on 0.1 mg. of Xanax for about 2 yrs. and I find that I'ts not doing as good as it used to. I'm trying to take myself off, but this is really difficult. My heart races so fast,nausea, vomiting, I can't even sit down. I get them legally from my mental health doctor. I have severe panic attacks when around people or in stores. I know I have taken more than I should of this month, I received some really bad news about my health and thought they would calm me down. Now I don't have enough to last until my next appt. Is there anyway I can do this on my own? I'm ashamed of myself for what I did, and I know I will pay horribly with side affects from not having them. Is there anything I can do to help myself? Thank you. ## Is there anyway you can talk to your ps...

severe anxiety depressi being around too many people at once

it's working for me real well but it just don't last as long as I've been taking it for so long ## Hello, Timmy! How are you? Xanax is a benzodiazepine that carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. That said, have you ever considered coupling it with another medication to see if it helps keep it under control longer? Sertraline and Prozac are both SSRI antidepressants that help with anxiety. Their typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth, as listed by the FDA. It's an option you could discuss with your doctor.

How many time a day to you take an XR?

I've been on 2mg xanax BID, somaqQID, and Lortab QID for about 2.5 yrs plus. My tolerence to the xanax is goign up, so that got me interested in the XRs. Also, are there really 3mg BARS? b/c i've had the green bars and it is absolutely confirmed it's 2mg xaniez. ## Yes, there is a Xanax XR 3mg available, since it is an extended release, it is usually only taken once a day. Have you discussed this issue with your doctor? You may need to just try a different medication. ## I've never seen them but have been told that they're 3mg Xanax that look like green triangles
