I should know better than to google my meds ;)
My pdoc prescribed me 1 mg of Xanax for sleep. Now that I've been reading stuff on the internet I'm a little freaked about long-term cognitive effects and addiction/withdrawal. I'm assuming I'm going to need this med for awhile--at least a couple of months. I asked my pdoc if I should be worried about addiction, but she said if we tapered me off of it things would be fine.
What's your opinion, babble experts? Is it really that dangerous to take Xanax at night for a period of a few months or more? Has it had adverse effects for anyone?
