I was prescribed xanax 1mg to take "as and when" I felt anxious, following some traumatic relationship issues. I would take half about 9pm. That was it! I would then sleep well.
I have read loads about people who are on xanax for years and I feel a bit pathetic asking for help in comparison to my issue. I only have taken it for about a month, the last time i had I had it was three days ago when I took 3mg in 3 days.
Anyway... Firstly I could not work out why I was freaking out. Most of the day I feel great but come about 6pm i start feeling anxious. I then attribute the anxiety to my relationships and my life. I feel like something is wrong but I just don't know what it is. I feel on some ways like I am losing my mind.
After chatting with some friends I see I am being a fool, but then when alone I start creating issues in my head which do not exist. At one point I feel like I need to split from my long term partner because "something is not right". 2 hours later all is well and I am back 100% in love.
Is this xanax withdrawl? I am a anxious person, prone to hypochondria and general anxiety but this is a level above what I normally have.
Thanks for taking your time to read this, xanax is a horrible drug for me. I have flushed it all so I never touch it again. Any comments appreciated. I really feel for those who have this issue after much more prolonged exposure to the drug.
