  • 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.
  • Xanax almost killed me!
    I took xanax and went to bed, I woke up in hospital. I had been there a long time in a coma. They were about to take me off life support! All because of xanax.

  • I have had migraines for 20 yrs. This is different. It is localized in the back of my head on the right for 4 days. It comes & goes with/without medication. I do have pain on occasion near the front & top of my head, but this localized pain that comes and goes sometimes on a whim is unusual.

  • From this study (2 days ago):

  • I've had some type of neuropathy for some time. My hand and feet have pain, numbness, and tingling. My feet are always freezing even in the summer and my hands are also very cold. More recently, I've been diagnosed with Osteoarthritis starting in my neck and all the way down and told I now need total hip replacement. The left hip will be replaced this month Monday February 23,2015.
    I have trouble dropping things with my right hand particularly the right, in addition to using it for various tasks. Other symptoms are dizziness, off balance whether I'm getting out of bed or basic physical activity such as walking and there are other symptoms, which I haven't listed.

  • From this study (3 days ago):

  • I was originally on adderall and lortab for my adhd and pain. My doctor wanted to get me off lortab, so she switched me to opana, which does not seem to work btw. Not too long after I started to get REALLY depressed and even suicidal. They thought that it could be the adderall so they switched that to vyvanse..but here I am again feeling severely depressed, angry and generally unable to be happy for more than an hours time. I'm beginning to think it's the opana that is causing this reaction. Has this interaction ever been reported?
