How does Xanax make you feel? How often do you take it? How many hours does it work for you? Any side effects that you've experienced? Does it help to stop obsessive thoughts or does it just relax the body?
makes me feel "normal" and not on edge.. it does help with my racing obsessive thoughts.. i have had no side effects on it except for getting a little tired the first week on it.. i am on 1mg every 4hrs.. so 4 times a day for a total of 4mg daily.. someties i only take it 3 times a day depending on how bad my anxiety is..
I have been on it for many years, .5 mg 2 times a day as needed. Takes the anxiety away and seems like it only lasts for about 3 hrs or so but long enough I have myself calmed down. It has certainly helped me.
I have a prescription for .25 mg Xanax (it's a pretty low dose), which I take whenever I need it. It doesn't make me feel different in any way at all, except that it helps smooth out my anxiety symptoms. It's a reactive approach, though. By the time you realize you're having the symptoms, the Xanax has to play catch-up, and it only lasts for about 4 hours.
I take .25 mg in the morning, and usually don't need a dose at night. I tried taking .50mg in the morning, but then would have rebound anxiety which was bad. I don't feel any different except I don't get freaked out as easy and my blood pressure stays nice and low. Upsetting and aggrivating things at work don't seem to bother me either when I take one before I go to work. Been on it for a little over a month and hope the doc will keep prescribing because it does help especially in Atlanta traffic.
