Just wanted to thank everyone who gave me advice on taking Xanax, I took it for about a week and by the end of the week was taking more than I was prescribed due to the fact I felt it wore of very quickly. That is a very lethal substance. Even if you did not have an addictive bone in your body, you could shurely form one with this stuff. Needless to say the pills went down the toilet. I am currently taking 2mg of valium twice a day and do not feel the urge to up the dose and am finishing my dosage next week. But thanks again for all the warnings, I could defintely see a life of hell with that prescription.
