Gwen Olsen, author of "Confessions of an RX Drug Pusher", who worked as a sales representative for the drug companies for 15 years calling on doctors, tells how she was addicted to the anti-anxiety drug Xanax (alprazolam) for 10 years.
She also says that after stopping Xanax, she experienced withdrawal symptoms for 6 months.
She says that all psychiatric drugs can be addictive.
She notes that withdrawal symptoms with any psychiatric drug can be 10 times worse than the initial symptoms.
She notes that psychiatric drugs—antidepressants, anti-anxiety drugs, etc—should NEVER be stopped quickly, but must be withdrawn very, very slowly.
