I used to take xanax
for anxiety, but started depending on it, even abusing it; and I
noticed that for however relieved it made me, I was twice as anxious the next day, and the only cure: more xanax. Felt like it was a racquet, bandaid, or vicious cycle so after week three on Celexa, I quit taking xanax and started noticing marked improvements every day thereafter... Along with benzo's counteracting Celexa, I notice that painpills hinder it as well... just not as bad.
