How addictive is the drug xanax? I mean, it gets prescribed by docs per the pharma industry for treating panic and anxiety disorders. Yet potentially causes seizures and more anxiety trying to stop taking it.

Yes and it is only given by a medical professional under controlled circumstances as well as for short-periods of time to avoid addiction.

Very addictive yes, and when you combine it with klonpin often times one substance enhances the effects of the other. Not that they are not dangerous on their own but you really put yourself at risk for overdose when combining them.

I wish I would have never had xanax bars. I was taking xanax, and I was still having a rough day so I took a bar instead of my regular dose. The high I got was the best thing that has ever happened to me. Now I cant live a day without worry of the xanax side effects. Yes it is very addictive.
