Thank you Serafena and Olivia! That was so much appreciated.
Yes..13 years on Xanax is the ONLY benzo that has stabalized me for the most part with no side effects at all.
The Effexor doesn't really do anything for me plus it is not good for one with bipolar because it causes more mania in a BP. That is why in a few weeks my doc will wean me off the effexor.
Not feeling good today. Very anxious and restless. I am not sure if I am getting used to the dosages and need to up them. I started at 5 for week one...then went to 10mg. Have been on that for 2 weeks and one day.
I am 240 pounds..a bodybuilder..so maybe it wears off quickly as far as the benefits and I need to experiment to find the right dose.
I have had no side effects except some blurred vision...not bad. And I can be slightly disoriented at times and some headaches. But I was having headaches before I took the med..so that is not it.
