Extreme caution required when taking this drug as xanax (alprazolam) side effects can be dangerous.
I first started taking this drug when I was living in Thailand. At first it seemed like a wonder drug, straight away I felt calmer and more relaxed than I had been in quite a while. Quite quickly though I needed to take more to get the same effect, until I was taking too many.
The main xanax side effects I experienced while taking xanax were severe memory loss and black outs.
I went through xanax withdrawals when I came back to the UK and the xanax that I’d brought back with me had run out. I went cold turkey, which was harsh. I don’t recommend this! I couldn’t sleep for days on end, even then only getting the odd hour of sleep here and there. I was also really on edge, my nerves were jangling. It took a good 3 months to get over xanax withdrawals.
Try to avoid any stimulants like coca cola and coffee, as this will exacerbate any anxiety you are feeling. A premium CBD oil, good quality omega 3 fish oil (highest dose available), gingko biloba and magnesium supplments will also help to reduce xanax side effects. Rest assured, things do get better eventually.
Please get in touch if you need some more information, as I’ve gone through benzodiazapine withdrawals a few times now, and have learnt a good few tricks to make things a bit more comfortable and less stressful 🙂
