Something new for me!

Come and visit me over at Mid-Century Modern Moms, where I am now a contributing writer!

We're a group of women with older kids (13 and up).

If you have toddlers, preschoolers or elementary-school-aged kids, you're gonna want to get a preview of what is in your future.

If you are deep in middle school, high school or college days, come and commiserate with us.

And if you are long past that stage of life, come give us some encouragement. We're a little enmeshed in the draaaaaaaahma and could use a kind word!

Whichever it is, come read my debut post for MCMM and leave me some commenty lovin' so my fellow MCMM'ers will know they made the right choice in adding me to the mix!

Xanax Side Effects said...

My name is Robert Kegan and i would like to show you my personal experience with Xanax.

I am 19 years old. Have been on Xanax for 60 days now. I have periodic panic attacks, particularly at social gatherings, riding in cars, and walking into rooms full of people (i.e. late to class). I felt that the medicine worked, but I felt that it created urges to take more than directed when the rebound anxiety hit, so I switched from alprazolam to clonazepam (Klonopin). I think xanax is great for airplanes and adjunctive treatment with ssri's, but by itself I don't think xanax has much too offer except as a short term treatment for panic attacks, klonopin is less sedating and seems to prevent future anxious episodes without causing cravings, and tolerance seems to build up much slower than xanax does.

I have experienced some of these side effects -
I sometimes felt invisible, like nobody could notice anything I was doing. Occasionally it would make me fall asleep if I had to stay in one spot for too long. After a fairly short period of time I would feel moderate rebound anxiety.

I hope this information will be useful to others,
Robert Kegan
