Hi - I'm 57 years old and have been taking xanax for sleep for about 3 years. I'm sure I'm addicted because I get extreme anxiety without it. I was wondering if anyone out there was able to wean themselves off this drug. I have osteopenia, am extremely active (lift weights, practice yoga, run, walk and paddle board) and don't want to increase my risk for bone loss! Thanks and hope to hear from the group.
Hi, I'm new to this group. I've been on Lexapro for over 3 years, and during that time have gone from Osteopenia overall to Osteoporosis in my spine. I definitely think it's the Lexapro, but of course I can't know for sure. I'm wondering how concerned to be about this. My MD still suggests diet/exercise/supplements without bone drugs at this point, but I'm worried about this drug. I'd appreciate any comments/suggestions from you all. Thanks, Susan
At 49 I was diagnosed with Osteoprosis despite the fact I exercise (weights) and take calcium regularly. Over the past 2 years, I have increased my exercise and nutrition, but have an additional 8% loss. I was on Rebif from 2008-2014. I have been on Techfidara for the last year. I am not on any other regular mediation. I have had all the blood tests and such to look for a cause. Could Rebif be a contributing factor? How to reverse it! I am not interested in going on any additional meds for bone loss possible.
