Tranquilizers Tranquilizers are used as an effective sedative. As the name suggests, a tranquilizer induces tranquility in a person. Sedatives can be abused to produce an overly-calming effect and can result in unconsciousness and even death.

Default Have you ever been addicted to tranquilizers?

I'm taking them for 6 months. Being watched by a doctor.

If i don't take at least 1 mg of Xanax per day, i feel like i'll go crazy. (the max. i took was 2.5 mg in a day, in s.o.s)

I want to leave this c*ap!

Do you know any sports or things that may help me releasing out anxiety?

Unless there is more to the story than feeling bad when you don't take Xanax you are not at addict.

Most people have no idea on earth what an addict is. You are physically dependent. Nasal sprays and laxatives cause physical dependency yet they are not addictive.

So don't think of your self as an addict.

Therapy is can anxiety
Sport and exercise is good for anxiety
Doing more enjoyable things.

If you were prescribed Xanax for panic disorder or PTSD or GAD or something else then options change based upon the type of anxiety.

Some people with an anxiety disorder can control anxiety without medications. But a serious anxiety disorder typically requires medication or at least therapy.

And there are other drugs like SSRI's (Prozac, Zoloft). They have to be stopped slowly if taken for a long time but they are not addictive. Again some call them addictive but all they can do is cause dependency and that is rare.

If taking 1 mg of Xanax helps you live a normal life and you don't need to keep taking more and more but can stay at 1 mg that might not be a bad idea. If it works it works. And if you stop now or anytime it is easy to do if done correctly. The dose can be slowly decreased or a drug like Valium can be used to replace Xanax and then the Valium dose is reduced. It is nearly if not completely painless. I have interned in a hospital when people on 20 mg of Xanax were detoxing. It was almost painless for them. But the detox was done well.
