  • Xanax xr lives up to it's claim.
    I get annoyed reading so many negative reviews of Xanax XR. I assume those come from thrill-seeking drug addicts. Therapeutically I find Xanax XR to be a genius idea - and it works like it should. Xanax was aleady long-established as (probably the most) effective anti-anxiety & anti-panic agent, that also does wonders for things like 'social phobia'. But the problem was always that Xanax wore off too quickly, leaving the patient in a state of wanting more. I know, I was one of those patients. Then came along Xanax XR: meant to deliver the same drug over an extended period of time. It does that just fine, I don't need to carry around a bottle of pills to have my next dose at-the-ready. Xanax XR does the job for a solid 8-12 hours (I give a range because I never actually counted the hours.). The best part is that I feel the first beneficial effect only 30 minutes after taking Xanax XR - I don't have to wait 2 hours. It's forumlated well. Sorry that drug junkies can't get a 'rush' from it. But it is Xanax and it does last all day.
  • Effexor near death experience
    In 1999 I was prescribed 75mg time release Effexor. I took one pill and 4 hours later I became dizzy and it felt like a cold patch in the middle of my head. I ckecked my eyes as i started seeing too much light, my puples were dilated, all black. I managed to get up stairs and asked my mom to get me to hospital. I passed out, and as crazy as it sounds I had a vision of my nana. I knew I was gone.she told me to wake up. I wasn't breathing. I could hear my mom talking on the phone to 911saying I had no pulse. (She is an RN) the ambulance came and they couldn't find my blood pressure. I couldn't see very well. The ER doctors said to continue taking the meds and sent my home. I stopped taking the Effexor. I had the side effects for many months. I get aura migraines now and have extreme sensitivity to other drugs.
