Comment:
My first use of Xanax began in 1981, then off and on until 1993...from then until now, non-stop using a 1 mg tab three times a day. Now I'm reading articles like "Xanax: can it cause your early death?" What am I to think about this? My theory is that panic attacks would have gotten me long before this, so it's a trade-off. IS Xanax a killer with minimal use?

Comment:
I have been on 1mg/ 4 times daily for 5 years now. When I am anxious, nervous, having a panic attack or a break down, Xanax does put me at ease. Slows my heart rate down, allows me to be and stay calm even in the most stressful situations. The only downside is that at times you will have short term memory loss.

I started taking xanax when I was 18-20 year's old, one of the worst mistakes of my life this medication killed 4 of my friend and almost killed me when I tried to get off.
