> It started before Effexor. I don't DO Xanax. I've been on benzos for 42 years and strongly disagree with your statements regarding tolerance
I have taken Xanax XR (extended release) .5 mg and it last about 20 hours in your system. Its great stuff but highly addictive. I use it for sleep when on the antidepressants. You said your on the benzos for 42 yrs. Which ones have you used & for how long. Glad they helped you.
I was just trying to find out if anyone else had experienced hearing loss with Effexor & or Xanax. It could be coincidental it happened while on these drugs, but I don't know whay it was so abrupt. Seems I went to bed one night OK then next day hearing down 40%. Also not sure why ears are now hypersensitive to sound, ache, and presssure feeling all day.
Thanks for your comments, no ill will meant by any of my posts, we all agreed that we can disagree & that also helps me understand from another perspective. I appreciate your taking the time to post.
