Hey everyone. This is my first thread but everyone seems ridiculously nice here so I figured what the hell. I had been using 1mg xanax on and off for about 2 years. For months it was a godsend helping with anxiety, then slowly it stopped working. It's gotten to the point where I can take several milligrams and still not get relief (or any effect at all). I tapered off it with the help of Valium, but life has its way of bringing you back to hell. Any advice? Should I just stop taking everything and deal? Are any other drugs as effective or just more of the same? Life sucks some (most of the) time(s).
