> Xanax works really well for me...but Xanax XR is just SO different, and I don't know why. Xanax acts as a mild antidepressant and Xanax XR makes me mildy fatigued, maybe depressed. I was all set and had convinced myself that taking Xanax XR instead of Klonopin because of the antidepressant effects was a great idea-but I tried it and got anxious and things seemed out of control. So as much as I validate Xanax as a med, my experience with XR has been poor-except at higher doses than I'm willing to take.
> I didn't see it in the posts, but maybe switching to Klonopin slowly would work well too...I find Klonopin very easy to withdraw from (maybe after Xanax withdrawal, anything seems easy!) best of luck-it's scary to be taking a med for anxiety and not having it work and not knowing what will happen next...I was there for 3 years; it wasn't fun.

Are you still on Klonopin and what dose of Xanax did you withdraw from- how long were you on that dose of Xanax? Thanks
