> The thing is...other benzos have never made me feel disinhibited. I've tried almost all the main prescribed benzos and all I've gotten from them is a depressed mood and sleepiness. There is something about Xanax and Ambien that definitely mimics the effects alcohol has on me. That is, I become much more open and talkative on both whereas the others just make me sedated.
That's very interesting. I read where someone actually became hypomanic on Xanax, but not on Valium. There may be a NE release thing going on there.
Disinhibition does not look the same in everyone. Some people display hostility and rage, while others show jovial talkativeness and a release of social inhibitions.
