    Question about Xanax
    An_267238 posted:
    My son was prescribed Xanax 6 months ago and took it as directed for a couple of days. He then took several (about at one time and passed out. He hasn't taken anything since then. He thinks that he is still having withdrawal symptoms from it and I have tried to tell him that he shouldn't be since it's been more than six months. He won't go to a doctor and he won't do anything. He just stays in his room all day and night because he says he is suffering side effects of the Xanax. Does anyone have any information that I can read on Xanax or share with him stating that it's not the Xanax or is it? I am so frustrated and he won't go to a professional and ask about it.
