Xanax

Xanax

I felt Nothing with this medicine, once 'up to reg. levels' after being prescribed and taking it for over 5 weeks, I felt as though I could not Cry nor could I Laugh and be happy.
I was in a permanent state of "numb" and felt as though just sitting, and not doing or saying anything was about all I could accomplish.
I weaned myself off by lowering the dosage over two-months and then I was done, told the Doc. and we have not re-addressed the issue (my fault, I know) :(

My Dr explained antidepressants to me like this...
A diabetic has insulin injections daily because the pancreas has stopped working efficiently. With depression our hormones aren’t working so we control depression with medication. Same Same but different...
Hope this helps.
If the medication works and makes you feel better that’s what matters
