Good Morning Sunshine,
I would stop reading all the horror stories on meds and look for the good outcomes. It is always good to find a balance between the good and the not so good and then make your own informed decision.
We have a great search feature here in the forum and I know there are a ton of threads that speak to the use of Xanax. Just click on the search feature tab above and you can type in the word Xanax, used for Anxiety and you should find lots of info already posted.
Here is a link from our own resources that you may find helpful also:
I wish you peace,
.25 mg of Xanax a day is a very, very low dose. If it is helping you and that is all you are taking, don't worry about it. At one time I was on 4 mg a day and have worked my way down to .75 mg per day. I feel very happy that I was able to do that. Ww are all different and respond to meds differently. Call your Dr. about the Zoloft, it may be causing problems. I was never able to take anti-depressants well. Buspar is the only other rx that has helped that I can tolerate.
You are going to be OK, enough with the horror stories.......you can find them everywhere about anything.
