John (5 years ago):
I had cancer and had surgery, chemo, and radiation. I was given Oxycontin and Xanax for pain and anxiety. After 4 years I am still taking a large dose of both, and my life is a wreck.I cannot work like before and do nothing of interest anymore. My family is waiting for me in Chicago, but I need to be fully treated from the cancer and from these pills (poisons) I am tired of these meds and want out of it! I rather have the pain than the side effects of the drugs. I live alone in Europe where I have been treated. I do not have the money to go to a center. What can I do to get my life back. I hate these drugs but my body is accustomed to it I take 80MG 4 x a day of oxycontin and 4 pills of .50mg of xanax. Please any suggestion? I would be so thankful

- Can xanax use cause female hair loss?
I am losing a lot of hair. It started about two months ago, and I went to dermatologist who ordered some medication for two weeks. It stopped. I have been using Victoza for almost a year and take Xanax daily long term. Can either of these drugs cause my hair loss?? It's back now, and full speed. At this rate, I'll be bold in two weeks more. I'm desperate, but my doctors think if the Victoza is causing it, it will regenerate once I stop, which I'm in the process of doing. However, if there is a chance Xanax is causing it, I need to know to find an alternative drug for my nerves. Any help??

- 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.
