  1. Bengt Hansson

    “Been on Xanax for almost 10 years. It has saved my life and I mean that. I couldn’t function from the severe anxiety that I would get everyday. I recently moved and my new psychiatrist won’t prescribe it to me. I am just thankful I still have 3 more scripts I can fill. He’s trying to get me off it by putting me on Buspar. What a mess this drug is. I can’t sleep and am nauseous all day long. Still take a low dose of my Xanax while on it but it scares me having to give up the only thing that has helped me over all theses years. People who abuse it have given it a horrible reputation and it’s not available for the responsible people that really need it.”

  2. Golden

    “Was prescribed Xanax .25 mg as needed about 9 months ago. After a few weeks I cut it back on my own to .125 as needed. I’m averaging .1 mg a day. I’m concerned about long term use, ( is 9 months considered long term?) Withdrawal is another fear( does replacing Xanax with another drug make any sense?) and mostly, the dizziness that I feel almost daily, especially when standing up or getting out of bed. Anyone have advice or personal experience that can help me? I’m 62, with 3 widow maker stents, but otherwise in excellent health.”

  3. Pearl Greene

    “I have no problem taking Xanax for sleep for years.. I am now trying to get off of it – only in the fear that they won’t be manufacturing it for long, and doctors are so reluctant to prescribe it. I’m scared I will have withdrawal effects.. .. so I have to do it very slow.. But I truly have no complaints taking 1 mg.. or half for sleep at night and for anxiety. Too bad its abused and now known as a bad drug..”

  4. Elba Carrillo

    “This stuff is a godsend for my nighttime anxiety attacks. It acts quickly, getting me back to sleep, stopping the gremlins in my head, dead in their tracks. This may sound weird but xanax also seems to improve my vision, especially distance. I had noticed this also with Valium in the past. My eye muscles relax too instead of straining? Not complaining!”

  5. Brook J. Schulz

    “First time taking Xanax today and I feel great! The doctor prescribed me 0.5mg every 6 hours but I took a 0.25 and it helped tremendously! I am calm and able to function. All those anxious and negative thoughts just slip away.”

  6. Mike Hansen

    “I had the most horrible experience with this drug. I was prescribed it by my doctor for anxiety at .25 once nightly. By the 2nd week I was 100% convinced I had a heart problem and was going to die. Heart arrhythmias every minute, all day and night. Went to the ER twice and both times was cleared from any heart problems and was told it was panic attacks. I’ve never had an issue like this in all my life. My anxiety has never led to panic attacks or pounding arrhythmias. When the ER told me it was anxiety, I stopped the xanax and a week later, my “heart problem” was magically gone. I just want to put this out there for anyone else that might experience this problem. Even at such a small dose this drug made my anxiety 10x worse once the half-life wore off.”

    “Many have said that alprazolam is a life-saver. I endorse that statement fully. If you panic or become anxious you’ll be unable to process thoughts properly which affects ALL your decisions, from making coffee in the morning to DRIVING your car to fulfilling your employment. Also, highly endorse taking the 0.5 mg before bed. Wake refreshed by the benefit of uninterrupted sleep. Thirdly, I read from someone up above my post, and I’ve experienced this awful phenomenon too, so => DON’T share what prescriptions you take with anyone that is not a health professional. You’ll leave yourself open to criticism that is detrimental to you by non-doctors ! Xanax is an important, very helpful, prescription. I’m sorry that some have the “addiction gene” (my terminology, not official). They should definitely ‘watch it’ if they know themselves to have an addictive nature. I believe the ‘script can still help them. Sometimes I go for a few days without needing it and notice no withdrawal. Prescribed patient of 30 years.”

  8. Gracie

    “Only med that has ever really worked for me. I’ve tried every holistic approach to treat my anxiety, taking a .25 takes the edge off like nothing else. I’m afraid to take meds but taking xanax doesn’t make me nervous. I only take it when my anxiety and panic come back, sometimes I have it under control for long periods of time. I read a lot of negative things about becoming addicted and the withdrawal effects but most of us who really suffer hate taking meds. We rather get better with no drugs. It helps me calm down so I can think clearly and get through the day or night. Wanted to post something positive for those who are afraid to take it.”

  9. Coby

    “I’ve taken xanax to help me sleep for several years. I try to take it as little as possible so I won’t get addicted. It makes me tired, even at.25 so I don’t take it during the day. Luckily, I don’t suffer from panic attacks very often. I probably take it a few times a month just before bed. It works better than it antihistamines although I frequently wake up after 6 hours which is all it seems to last. I have heard about it leading to Alzheimer’s though. I’m afraid of that.”

  10. John

    “The withdrawal from long term Xanax and other benzos is the longest and most agonizing experience you will ever go through. This is not an opinion it’s a fact. The withdrawals can last YEARS…yes years. Don’t believe me? Take a good look online and start researching now. This drug is the absolute worst drug to get off for most people. Narcotic withdrawals pale in comparison. This is not a review…this is a warning.”

  11. Tisha Parrish

    “Xanax is a miracle for me. I can’t live without it. It is not addicting. I never experienced withdrawl symptoms either. I am usually tense, high strung and anxious. Xanax makes me happy, easy going, talkative, calm. It helps me sleep, I can’t sleep without it. I take zoloft and seroquel but without xanax nothing seems to work or help me. I love xanax and I take it daily or else I really just can’t get through the day. I have anger and a short fuse and bad temper and xanax calms my storms. Xanax is the only thing that works for me and makes me sane and able to face life head on.”

  12. willed

    “Alprazolam is to me what glucose is to a diabetic. I’m an educated contributing member of society but am genuinely a disabled person without this drug. My anxiety without this drug is so extreme that I spend every waking moment trying to relieve a fear state, cannot experience peace of any kind, laugh, smile, or function in any state outside of terror. CBT, meditation, positive thinking, hot showers, faith, etc. just do not work for the level of anxiety I have. I have tried many other drugs and classes of drugs because I’m aware of what Xanax is, but this drug is the treatment for anxiety like mine. I would never abuse this drug, would never drink alcohol with it, and am highly aware of how it affects me. Xanax keeps me off disability and well, period.”

  13. Leku

    “I have been using this drug for several years for my anxiety attacks, and it great. But anxiety has been getting worse and worse especially during work which causes heart stress (thanks so much anxiety..), so my doctor is now letting me take it during my 5-day work week. It works excellently. I am so much more calm and present at work. I will say I am a lot more lethargic, and that is noticeable. But otherwise I have no side effects, so I will continue with this treatment and I am so glad that it is so effective. The good outweighs the bad for me, but I will say that if you tend to be more dependent on drugs like these, I don’t recommend it for you. I have no addiction to it and no withdrawal symptoms when go days without after taking it for multiple days in a row. So just be aware, and pay attention to your body. If you are struggling with learning the difference between wanting another dose and needing another dose, talk to your doctor.”

  14. john Gilbert

    “Hey guys, this medication should be taken in moderation. Seeing reviews with people taking it 5 years + is alarming. This is short term useage and only if you are having symptoms of panic ensuing. Please be light with this. I take 1-1.5mg when needed and it really helps. This isn’t a daily thing and if it is for you please seek help.”

  15. Carrie G. Arnold

    Just don’t abuse the drug and it works wonders.

  16. Thạch Hưng Quy

    With Xanax I feel like I can take it when I need it and put it down the next day if I don’t. Unlike the other antidepressants that cause brain zaps or worse side effects, feelings of a rollercoaster coming down.

  17. Dorothy K. Smith

    “It really helped me with my anxiety and depression it’s really helped me deal with my daily activities!” As a beginner, thanks so much Diana Wood.

  18. Bettino Pellegrini

    I take 0.5 mg three times a day once in a while I have severe panic attack my doctor said to take two never take more than three in one day it has worked great I’ve had anxiety and panic attacks for 35 years I started taking Xanax about 20 years ago it works great for me.

  19. Ursula Lemann

    Xanax is so mild, I experience little to no side effects with it. It stops my panic attacks and helps tremendously with my anxiety – it also helps with my depression.

  20. Edgardo S. Kaufman

    Today is my first day taking Xanax. I have never had a anxiety/panic disorder until recently. I have been dealing with caring for my husband being terminal with cancer and being the only one working to pay the bills. Working long hours, caring for a sick husband and doing all of the daily chores around the house and farm has become extremely overwhelming. I was constantly feeling like I couldn’t breath, feeling like I had life ending health issues and having that doom and gloom feeling like I was going to die ( literally ). I am on a as needed dose of just .05mg x2 per day. I am also on Escitalopram once daily. The Escitalopram really doesn’t take away the panic and anxiety feeling. Taking the Xanax for the first time, after about 15 minutes I felt this wave of feeling like I had drank a hard alcohol drink, kind of like a foggy head, but it lasted only a minute and then I could feel a calming feeling. It kind of makes me feel sleepy and relaxed. Hopefully this medication with take away the horrifying feeling of doom and help me live a more normal life again. Got my fingers crossed.

  25. Hans Lyberth

  26. Scott K. Lopez

  27. Agramant Patel

    I say this because I was prescribed 0.5 mg 3x daily and don’t need that much. This has help me most.

  28. Tolnai Tamás

    I would never abuse this drug, would never drink alcohol with it, and am highly aware of how it affects me. Xanax keeps me off disability and well, period.

  29. Henry b smith

    “I started with Xanax for anxiety 30 years ago and have gradually increased. I used to take perhaps 0.25mg occasionally when I started, and now 30 years later, at age 71, I am up to three 0.5mg a day. I successfully fight to not take it more often and I almost always win the fight. When I don’t, I take an extra 0.25mg or 0.5mg. Meanwhile without it I would not have had a successful college teaching career , traveled to Europe 28 times, produced a cable TV show, written 3 books, had hundreds of friends who love and respect me, and even worked out at the gym where I swim, walk, and work out with weights regularly. My current psychiatrist tells me frequently (I ask him every few months because I read terrible things) that I should not be concerned, that I am using it intelligently, and it helps me live a great and fantastic life filled with success, satisfaction, love and affection of so many people. My anxiety could be debilitating, but here I am living a great life.”
