Sivad: I hope you didn't think I was accusing anyone of anything. It's just a thought that popped into my head. I would love it if you would PM me with info about Xanax addiction, if you feel comfortable talking about it. I'm taking it too and the addictive possibilities concerns me. Every few months, I detox myself from it and I can definitely tell a difference: hard to get to sleep and have restful sleep, feeling generally yucky, and the first few days off it having really macabre dreams. I'm taking a half dose most days to help me sleep. I had been sleeping poorly ever since my neice died a few years ago and generally not handling any kind of stress as well as I did before her death, so my doc prescribed Xanax for me.
