  • 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.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (6 days ago):

  • I think it was brought on by the Suboxone. I took 3-4 a day for approximately 4 years starting 11 years ago. Stopped them but realized they were helping with my depression. After trying every antidepressant with no help the Suboxone was wonderful. I got back on it but only taking 2-3 a day for another 2-3 years. Insurance stopped paying about 9 months ago. I continued to take them, but only 1 a day for another 1-2 years. Now, I take 1 occasionally. When I completely stopped the neuropathy gradually began. It was around Sept. I began to notice my feet felt like they were numb. With shoes on I felt like they were wet. I also noticed getting weaker and my family noticed I was walking slow, etc. Feel terrible with terrible problem of something like hot flashes, but those were over years ago. Have lots of nausea. My doctor used some type instrument and I have very little feeling on the bottom of my feet. He is sending me to a neurologist.
