Re: Is Xanax addictive?
I took Xanax about 10 years ago. After a terrible anxiety attack and going to the doctor they prescribed it. I was on a low dose ( don't remember exactly ) and felt immediately better, but in a comatose state. After a week of being constantly sleepy I got off. I was at work typing and remember my hands shaking. I had several days of withdrawal. If he can, he should not take that. I never was on Lexapro because after that episode I was afraid to take anything.
The thing that has been consistently effective for me is watching my diet, exercise, and a great support person. Good luck to you both...
