Hello everyone. I stumbled upon this website doing a little research on Zoloft and weight gain. What a great forum this is!
I am weaning off Zoloft (weight gain) and always have Xanax as a backup for anxiety attacks. I don't take it daily, though, only when needed. It works wonders when I can't sleep as well.
I'm looking forward to reading more. Glad I found you all!

Soooooooo true....talking to your doc about meds is the only way you will know and he may have to try a few before you both find what is right for you....and unless the anti-anxiety's are written to take every so many hours, they are usually written as needed or PRN.......so if the prescription says take one every 4-6 as needed, that means as you need it, not to take it every 4-6.
Good Luck and a special good luck to you ( I am sory, I cannot remember your name) for trying to get off of the xanax......it is so sad..these meds help us so much, but they are so addictive and the withdrawal can be awful
LUV YA ALL,
I am so glad that you posted that. I was trying to get the point across that xanax is a huge med., and it comes with serious withdrawal and it is the strongest of the benzo's.
