What is Anxiety For Me?

For me, anxiety has me on edge 24/7.

Going Off Xanax – My Experience

Going off of Xanax has been a life-changing experience. My psychiatrist prescribed it for anxiety, and I mostly used it at nighttime to help me sleep. I wasn’t abusing it per se, but I took it nightly. I was on the 2MG tablets, which is the highest dose.

Why Were You Taken Off Xanax?

For starters, let’s get into why I was taken off Xanax in the first place.
