In reply to I'M AFRAID TO TAKE THE XANAX, posted by Chris on March 27, 1999, at 7:48:03

Chris, after I had my ovaries removed, I also began to experience the same symptoms you describe. I won't go thruough the myriad of mis-diagnoses that were offered at that time, but eventually I was given Xanax and the horrendous feelings stopped within 30 minutes. I can't tell you the relief I felt. I only took the Xanax for a few days if I felt like the anxiety attack was returning and then stopped. I believe my dosage was rather higher than you mention. I had no unpleasant side effects from the Xanax. Good luck.

> I recently had ovarian cyst surgery since the surgery which turned out fine--I have been having hot flashes, chills, sense of dread, racing thoughts, extremely upset stomach, gagging, etc. after extensive blood tests, hormone tests, etc. my doctors (gastrologist and internist) have concluded that I am having anxiety attacks--first tried prozac, which made me stay up 48 hours straight, then buspar, which made me have a stiff neck and extreme muscle spasms, NOW XANAX (0.25 mg) to be taken twice a day "as needed". I am scared to death to try this because I have no idea what will happen next. Any suggestions? She also gave me Hyoscyamine for stomach pain (an antispasmotic). I have never taken much medication in my life. I'm the kind of person who suffered through childbirth, even a headache because I hate meds. Please help!
