> Thanks worrier,
> I am a little scared to try anything new, when I first got my panic attacks 10 years ago, they tried everything and I found the xanax to be the only thing I could tolerate. Well, now I am up to 8mg a day and trying to wean down to the "normal" 4mg a day, but it's not easy. Does this xanax feel like the other xanax?? What are the major differences, if any?!
> Thanks =)

>I know all too well the fear of trying anything new, I've had some real med disasters and am pretty much terrified of any new drug. I think you'll be pleased and safe with the xanax XR...the effects are pretty much just like regular old xanax but without the "rollercoaster" know, you can feel it take effect and feel it quit working. For me regular xanax had a really immediate effect but I had to take it about every 4 hours. With the XR you don't really feel that immediate effect, but once you'll be able to get through a whole day without reaching for that pill bottle. I will say it doesn't last 24hrs, so I had been taking .25-.5mg of the regular stuff at night. Today my pdoc suggested taking 1mg of the XR twice daily instead. We'll see how that goes. I still keep the regular stuff in case of a really bad episode, but I haven't needed it during the day at all. Good luck to you. Worrier.
