Hey there Sydnee,
I would suspect your friend is asking for yours as she may be using hers up and cannot get it refilled until it's due date. So she is attempting to get more by borrowing from you. You are right to say no or your RX will run out ahead of refill date.
Using the one she gave you is different than her expecting you to contribute to her monthly supply.
I am proud of you for holding the line on this issue.

Thanks for explaining that to me..........so the meds are being shared and they would like you to contribute. I am so proud of you for not getting into this as it only leads to trouble. In the end someone comes up short on pills if they take more then prescribed or give them away when they need their own meds.
Besides it is not right to take others meds on a regular basis. Someone could overdose.
I am glad you have good common sense not to get into this game.
We have to use caution and common sense in this thread as it is just skirting a rule ...
No I am not ATTACKING you hun just letting you know we all have to watch what is said

Sydnee, I am so happy you are back!! That post wasn't meant to stop you from raising new topics, we mods just worry about bandwidth sweetie, k?
You have done the right thing. I let my ex hubbie take my xanax for recreational use (many moons ago!) and all it did was make me look like a "druggie" when I had to explain why my prescription was finished so early. Look after you, look after your self respect and don't give in (oh I'm giving advice - sorry)!!! Do what you feel is right for you and know we support you.
Thank you for your concern..
I have taken Ativan,Xanax,Klonopin,Valium and was slowly weaned from each Drug.I realize 2 MG's is a lot,but I NEED a higher dosage for the time being.I have been Housebound over 5 + Years and dealt with a LOT of crap from Family since my Father died.
Had a really really really rough go of things,so need something to calm me enough until I feel comfortable and "safe" enough to go it alone.
I was on Valium 40 mg per day and it took me 11 months to wean off it extremely slowly so I would not have rebound or severe side effects.
I really would like to see you doing some sort of therapy as it is well known that treatment for anxiety works best using medications and therapy. Without the therapy you just taking medications which won't change how you deal with the anxiety.
I know you are against therapy but from your list of meds you have run the gambit of benzos although there are some you have not tried but they all work in a similiar way. Valium has the longest half life and that makes it the better all around med IMHO.
Remember you have anxiety, it does not have you.
