I dont care too much for them. Make me veeerrryyyy slllleeeeepppy. I could see how they would help if you had sleep issues, though that's not their purpose. If they are making you down and depressed, it's prob not for you. I dont know what your issue is but if it was the proper medx, it would alleviate it. It's like with adderol, if someone without ADD takes it, it's makes them hyper. But when someone with ADD takes it and the medx works like it sopposed to, it slows them down. Benzo addiction is apparently serious shit by the way, way worse withdrawls then opiates

Only time I ever took a Xanax was to sleep...a quarter stick and it's lights out for ten hours with those things

I heard the WDs are brutal too, I knew a girl who had to be hospitalized coming off those fuckers

The vast drug abuse experience of the board doesnt qualify us medically? LOL! Pretty sure zanax is anti-anxiety not anti-d's. Anti-d's do take awhile to build up in your system and work, not so sure about zanax. Think it works pretty quickly. Did WW set you up with the doctor? Haha j/k

Why did the doc prescribe them? Did you tell him you had general anxiety? Or did you have panic attacks?
Benzos work by enhancing GABA-ergic transmission.
GABA is an inhibitory neurotransmitter, a 'chiller'. It chills you out. Laid back people usually have
high levels of GABA. People that are fearful or timid often have very low GABA levels or poor GABA-ergic
transmission. High GABA levels usually make people more social (alcohol affects GABA, which is why so many
people become talkative and outgoing when drinking).
If benzos make you depressed, you probably have plenty of GABA already, and don't really need them unless
you begin to experience a panic attack.
Some people like abusing them recreationally because it gives you a drunken feeling and carefree attitude.

They are very effective drugs for panic attacks, but I feel they shouldn't be used for anything else. Tolerance
develops quickly, they are highly addictive, and withdrawals are a bitch.
Also, the GABA system of the brain is very fragile and hard to repair. If you mess it up with benzos it can take
years for it to recover. Neuros like Dopamine and Serotonin rebuild fairly quickly when people stop using drugs
that affect those systems.... but not GABA. Be careful.

Xanax and tomazePam work amazing for helping me go to sleep. I wouldn't take them for anything else. They are anti-anxiety meds, are you talk g them for anxiety or panic attacks?

Benzos are only for people who have SEVERE ANXIETY from Anxiety disorders and other mental health issues. Believe it or not, SSRIs are used to Treat ANXIETY DISORDERS, such as PANIC DISORDER. ATIVAN was the very first medication i took 7 years ago when i was in a Crisis center, was on it for only 2 weeks to calm me down, then was taken off that and put on PAXIL AND TRAZODONE.

I was at a buddies house last weekend working, forgot my meds, my buddies prescribed Klonopin, gave me 1mg on friday then on Saturday i took 1mg of ATIVAN..........Ativan works better for me. Even though im not prescribed BENZOS i have every right to take them, i have MULTIPLE ANXIETY DISORDERS.

Sometimes I get the feeling that everyone living in the US is on prescribed anti-depressants or some other shit that fucks with your mind.

just my 2 cents on this...
ADD is an invention of the pharmaceutical stablishment,  as for xanax and other benzos they work great to combat anxiety and other sides caused by high doses of tren...thats how i been using them....never been hooked on them as my use is sporadic and ill use them only when i feel the need,now im at 700 mg tren a week, every once in a while i feel an anxiety attack coming on i will pop couple of theses babies and sleep like a champ!! Cheesy

I take Xanax to fly. I can't stand to fly. My doc gives me a script for 15 half mg pills Nd it lasts two flights. No shit, when my anxiety for flying is bad, I take four or five and have a few drinks and I am still anxious about flying. Took six(3mg) on my way to Europe and that did the trick. They don't work too well, but my only other option is sleeping pills, but then I get groggy when I land. Xanax usually don't bother me.
