What to expect..? Xanax(page 2)

If you want to try the xanax but are afraid then try taking 1/4 or half. I take Ativan which is similar to xanax... when I took the first dose I took 1/4 of it because meds have a strong affect on me. Like you I also have a fear of even simple things like tylenol. I can still take only 1/4 of ativan when panic is mild. But for things like my surgery a few months ago a took a whole one the night before and was able to sleep and get to the hospital with NO panic at all. I was expecting to be dragged out of my house kicking and screaming lol. So the benzo's really can help with the anxiety symptoms.. but should always be used with caution Smile
