Xanax Anxiety Attack, Types of Drugs, Panic Attack, Ssri, Adverse Reactions
Xanax makes me go from an anxiety attack to a full blown panic attack. I also have had adverse reactions to SSRI's so maybe it's just how I react to these types of drugs.
Dastaunch1 - Hi, I find it calms me down a heap although im also taking Exffor XR an antidepressant which along with the xanax i find my self always in a lazy state before i was on any of these meds i found it really hard just to leave the house my anxiety would just take over and at times i could'nt even breath properly and nearly lose my footing but now im finding it alot easier to do my day to day duties its jus im really calmed like close to being spaced out and my speech gets impaired at times and i really dread going to bed cuz of fear of the dreams iv'e been having.. any advice u could give me would be great also very helpful. firstname.lastname@example.org
Avgconsum - I was continually getting sicker and sicker over the course of years taking this drug and doctors could not connect the dots- they did not realize I was in tolerance withdrawal which can hapen after you have been taking this drug for more than two weeks consecutively. I now know that this drug supresses the HPA Axis, effects the following neurotransmitters either directly or indirectly: GABA, Serotonin, Dopamine, Noepinephrine, and Acetycholine- increases Glutamate levels, blunts CRH in the brain. If you look up 'Benzodiazepine Dependence' in Wikipedia you can read more about it. Another good resource is Pubmed. You may want to go to Benzobuddies.org to find out more information. I was taken off this drug too quickly and was plunged into a physical and mental hell that is litterally indescribable. It has bee 19 months since my last dose and I still suffer numerous prtracted withdrawal symptoms. Doctors iatrogenically addict patients to this drug then have no idea the withdrawal syndrome even exists past 30 days- and therefore disregard any ongoing complaints from their patients. The United Kingdom is aware of this problem and is the only country actively working on changing the prescribing laws. The Ashton Manual (which you can read on-line if you do a search) is a helpful tool ahich you can print out and bring to your doctor. It provides clinical informationon the withdrawal and tapering schedules. The Parliament in the UK is using this manual as a guide.
