Am I Addicted to Xanax?

Question by ?Dede?: Am i addicted to Xanax?
First off i am prescribed xanax for anxiety. But i think it is causing more harm than good.
I have been taking .25 mg about 5 days a week since october.
I feel wonderful when i am taking it, but when i am not, i feel like shit.
Like today, i didn’t take it but i took it yesterday. Today i have had a headache, i just felt out of it, anxiety, mood swings, nausea and diarreah. I bet if i took a xanax i would feel better.

Does it sound like i am dependent on it?

Also the doctor switched me to klonopin and she wants me to take it every day but i am thinking twice about doing it because i don’t want to become any more dependent on medication than i already am.
Anyone else in the same situation
I know they are bad, they are just like a temporary fix to the problem. That is why i want to stop them while i am at a small dose

ALWAYS DISCUSS WITH YOUR DOCTOR YOUR CONCERNS, MY SISTER HAS BEEN ON ZANAZ FOR A LONG TIME AND SHE CAN TELL WHEN SHE DOES NOT TAKE IT..BUT IT IS PRESCRIBED AND HER DOCTORS ARE AWARE OF EVERYTHING AND YOU NEVER QYIT TAKING A MED IMMEDIATLY

Yea i’m 17 and i take a xanax everynight. Like you i am prescribed .25 mg. I dont know what would happen if i stopped taking it everynight, but the doctor told me it was all right to take it everynight. I get to sleep much better.
