I was on Xanax for about 6 mos. Took 1/2 mg. at night. My doctor told me to stop because I was complaining of flushing/hot flashes. He said he suspected the Xanax and after 6 mos. it should go away. Any thoughts out there?

I don't see flushing and hot flashes listed as a side effect when I checked the WebMD Drugs & Medication information here:

Common Side Effects of Xanax Oral

Are you still experiencing the flushing symptoms? Please check in with your doctor to make sure it's not a health issue!
