I all! I hope you guys can respond ASAP as I will be leaving in about an hour to go have a procedure done.
The doctor prescribed a xanax for me to take before the procedure. It's a 0.5mg tablet.
I've never taken xanax before and have no idea what to expect.
Will I be able to drive? Will I feel really out of it?
I just want to know what to expect.
I'm about 5'4" and 160 lbs if that make any difference.

Xanax may cause you to become drowsy or less alert; therefore, driving or operating dangerous machinery or participating in any hazardous activity that requires full mental alertness is not recommended.

Found this on Xanax web site, may be of some interest. good luck with the proceedure.
I switched from Xanax to ativan. Having fewer side affects and feel better!
