Quote from Banker:
I think a lot of it has to do with tolerance. It's VERY easy to build up tolerance and for whatever reason, you end up taking much, much more to get the same feeling as one gives you. Klonopin are a little different to me. I used to take those too and they really just made me feel TIRED - xanax, to me, give a little different feeling. It's nothing like euphoria or anything... I DO know what you are saying but I've always LOVED pain pills but not xanax. However, I have found my tolerance rises FAST if I do not watch it. I mean, bigtime. In fact, it's up right now and your mind just thinks it needs more. It's weird!
