Avatar n tn If you fell a little anxious about stopping Xanax, get the herb Valerian Root and take that instead. It calms the nerves and is safe. Take a little more of what the recommend dose is as this herb is safe. Then just take the normal dosage. It smells a little wierd but does not upest the stomach or anything. Worked great for me. Just stop the Xanax snd start the Valerian Root. You'll be fine.
Avatar f tn I have been taking 3mgs of Xanax for 13 days I have 3 .5 left. Will I be at risk for a seizure Will this abuse?
Avatar m tn I quit Lortab cold turkey but this is way worse, plus what I understand there is a risk of seizure. Please write back and give us more info.
696997 tn?1232319513 To Dr Junig I hope you remember me, I'm the one who asked about taking Xanax for 13yrs would be considered an addiction? You answered in such a way if I considered it an addiction due to the tolerance of the drug. O.K. my dr gave me 14 pills instead of 30 for the month. I went ballistic!!!! went back to the office and demand more. I got more. But had the dr given me a substitute like valium or librium then I would be O.K.
Avatar f tn one question as you know i have been tking xanax 0.5mil one time at night for six months, do not abuse have been trying to get off went fron one a night ,skipped a night took half of 0.
Avatar f tn 5mg, however, the likelihood of a seizure is very small. I have stopped Xanax cold turkey at .5mg after 6+ months of use and had nothing more than a little anxiety. At the dose you are on, your doctor may want you to half your dose for a while and then discontinue, or he/she may just have you stop altogether now. It really depends on the individual, so I definitely recommend speaking with your doctor about this.
232264 tn?1191252080 I have had friends go into seizures going cold turkey on xanax. You have to go see your doc and get an anti seizure med if you have been taking xanax like that. Everybody is different but I have seen it happen.
Avatar n tn please tell me it ends.. withdrawling from xanax, day 9. when is going to end. I dont see hope. cant sleep, eat, move, think, work,walk,talk....... type even..
Avatar n tn having been busted for something similar, what could they be charged with? You have reason to be concerned about the withdrawal symptoms from xanax. Xanax is one of the benzodiazapines, others being Valium, Librium, Klonopin, Ativan. Four days into cold turkey from Ativan, I had a seizure, something quite common with these drugs. I almost died and still have a compressed vertibra from the experience. If they've been on the stuff for a while (what other rx's do they use?
Avatar n tn ALWAYS HAVE TO TAKE THE DOSE THAT THE BRAIN IS USE TO ALWAYS AND IF YOU EVER DO WANT OFF THEM THE BEST WAY IS TO GO TO THE DETOX THEY WILL TAPER YOU WITH PHENOBARBITAL SSO U DONT HAVE A SEIZURE...THIS MED AND BARBITURATES ARE THE WORST MED TO DETOX FROM XANAX CAN TAKE UP TO 2 YRS TO GETBTHE MIND BACK IN GOOD SHAPE FRIEND IM ONLY TRYING TO HELP YOU NOT GET ADDITED TIO THESXE MEDS....YOU WILL GET ALOT OF ANWERSON THIS ONE..

Avatar n tn I am currently on 4 mg daily of Xanax for Anxiety attacks. My question is, simply does Xanax have any long term affect besides the obvious of addiction? Also, for some reason I have notice an increase in the intensity of the medication any time I eat chocolate, is this just coincidence or is there a medical reason behind this.
Avatar m tn I've been prescribed Xanax for 16 years , I had switched Drs. and after a year my new dr drug tested me , I tested dirty for weed, I enjoy a joint every now and then , not all the time , well my dr took the Xanax away and will not help me wean off of them .... I now see a dr that will not help me wean off Xanax , he give me aterax , it don't help , I told him this , I get Xanax from friends so I don't feel the pain of withdraws, I can't go into treatment , I have a mortgage to pay ...
Avatar n tn THEY SHOULD TAKE XANAX OFF THE MARKET YEARS AGO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! KLONIPIN IS A SEIZURE MED BUT ALSO A BENZO AS XANAX BUT NOT NEAR AS ADDICTIVE, MAYBE YOU CAN TAKE THAT WHILE WEANNING OFF OF XANAX WITH YOUR DOCTORS APPROVAL OF COURSE !! BUT DETOX A NA MEETINGS KEEP YOU OFF IT ! I STILL AT TIMES HAVE A BURNING IN MY STOMACH WANTING XANAX AFTER HAVING ZERO XANAX since 1994 & I WILL NEVER, EVER TOUCH OR LOOK AT XANAX AGAIN, NEVER EVER !
374690 tn?1224556189 Good Evening! Does anybody know about how many milligrams of Xanax I could safely take to get through the first few days of withdrawls? I know it should be every 8 hours, but do you think it's okay to use more often? I have taken a half of a 0.5mg. before & it put me to sleep. Thanks!
311051 tn?1193419806 Everyone I talk to I tell them to stay away from xanax. It will destroy your life. Even if my life is ****, taking 2-4 MG of xanax a night, and kills me, I want to do my best to keep this disaster from happening to someone else. A year ago I had everything going for me including a job as a Meteorologist (my dream) and I allowed these drugs to destroy any hope I had for this.
2187831 tn?1357090600 Hi, Does anyone have any success stories of getting off xanax? I didn't know I had other problems besides my opiate abuse issues. Then I started doing research on everything and I am freaked out. First, that I so haphazederly got on these pills and that they are so horrible for my health. I have been tapering. I have a plan in place. I have take them for about 3.5 years. I was prescribed .5 4xs a day. I never took that many. I mostly took then at night to help slow my mind to sleep.
Avatar n tn I have been taking Xanax now for a year I tried stopping cold turkey when I found out I was preggo I am 12+3 today and still taking them but need help weening off of it I'm concerned that the baby could have deformities but I know I can't just stop due to the risk of seizure Can anyone help me??
Avatar n tn DON'T start taking Kava or Valerian UNTIL you stop the Xanax or it will potentiate the effects of the xanax.
Avatar m tn That's a GOOD thing in that it doesn't mean you will have a chronic seizure disorder. Just be SURE that the doctors know about the Xanax. Most likely, you won't need much of a follow up. Hang in there, let us know what's going on, okay?
Avatar n tn my brother had a seizure..he was taking xanax for a pretty long time and now hes off..hes taking something now called benzos..im not sure of the name..my question is.. he was out of it for about 5 minutes..and now he seems to be fine..he refuses to go to the hospital..i dont really know much about seizures..he says it was a small one and hes fine..i thaught they all were pretty dangerous..are there some that arent so dangerous?
Avatar f tn I was prescribed 4 psychiatric medications at one time at quite high doses of each. The medications were Abilify 30 mg., Zoloft 300 mg., Cymbalta 90 mg. and Xanax 2 mg. I was taking that regimen for about a year and a half. I suffered a grand mal seizure in October 2007 and another one shortly thereafter. I had a MRI and EEG which were conclusive for temporal lobe epilepsy. I have no family history of this. My question is could the drugs I was taking possible caused the seizures?
Avatar n tn ago I had my first panic attack, taking .5 mg. Xanax as needed. Didn't have them that often. I work in a very stressfull/hostile workplace (School) it has become this way over a period of about 5 yrs. I am a very passive person and sometimes I feel like the doormat. Lately my situation there has gotten worse and 1 week ago I was at my home and felt as if I was starting to have a panic attack, got up to go take my Xanax and that is the last I remember until coming to.
Avatar f tn I cannot give you an exact amount of Xanax that has no risk of seizure from withdrawal. In general, though, seizures occur along with other withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety, tremor, and muscle tension; it would be unusual for a seizure to occur in a patient who was not manifesting any other signs of withdrawal.
Avatar f tn Hey, I do not have a seizure disorder, but my twin sister and my mother both do. I also used to be addicted to Xanax. The seizure that you had on Tuesday could very well be from the Xanax (lack thereof). Please see a doctor if you are out of Xanax. Have you ever heard of Status Epilepticus? This is serious- your body can go into multiple seizures from the shock of your receptors going wild from not having the benzo's.
Avatar f tn I have taken .25 xanax once daily for the last 9 days...It has helped but I started reading about it and became very scared..everyone talked about withdrawals...if I discontinue now will I experience withdrawals? Is that enough to cause a seizure?
Avatar n tn My mom has been taking xanax for approximatly 4 years. She was up to 15 .5 mgs a day and she tried to stop taking them cold turkey so she had a seizure. I had to call 911 and go to the hospital with her. The doctor gave her 2mg valium so she wouldnt have another siezure.
