I just started to take this damn Xanax as psychiatrist told me to because my anxiety and panic is so strong the whole freaking time I'm not able to do anything. At first I was supposed to take whole pill at morning and afternoon. Tried it once only because it knocked me so strongly I couldn't function at all, slept half of a day, and on the next day I had strong problems with vision. So I called my doc and he told me to take half of a pill twice a day but still felt bad so half of a pill once a day. My problem is this **** is not working for me at all, it gives me completely opposite effect. Im supposed to be on psychotherapy session right now but I didn't go because of damn panic and I'm crying I'm scared and angry and hate my life and all of this freaking meds for just not working at ****ing all





Oh gosh, sorry you missed your appointment. Call the psychiatrist so he/she is aware of what is happening. With these drugs the doctors should monitor and follow up but often they don't. I really feel for you. I get extreme side effects, too. IDK. It sounds like they might suggest something else. I ended up having to go off all medications because what they prescribed kind of made me feel insane. You aren't alone. Hang tight. It is not your fault.
