Thought i would share this ...I woke up with a mild headache sunday, not enuf to make me take any meds. Since i only get a small supply each month i try and use them when i feel i really need them. Anyways, i spent over 3 hours at the ER with my mom because SHE had a severe migraine attack. Well needless to say the nurses and doctors were Rude and slow and didnt seem to really care....which made my stress level very high and my headache even worse. Anyways, when i got home i decided to finally try my xanax and see if it woudl help my headache since it was a tension headache. (i originally had the xanax some months ago for anxiety but hadnt touched it since) ..I took .75mg and it worked WONDERS. within 30 minutes my headache was completely gone. ....again this morning i awoke with a moderate headache and tried the xanax again...and it worked. I am so amazed and releived to almost have 2 full days without a headache...its been so long since i've been able to say that. Im going to mention it to my neuro when i see him in a couple weeks.
