I BEGAN TAKING IT 15 YEARS AGO WHEN MY HUSBAND FELL FROM OUR BOAT AND DROWNED. I WAS THE ONLY PERSON ON THE BOAT AND I WAS UNABLE TO SAVE HIM, THERE IS A LOT MORE DETAILS BUT THE RESULTS WERE THAT I COULD NOT FUNCTION. I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH CHRONIC ANXIETY COMPLEX AND HAVE BEEN TAKING THE XANAX SINCE. YES, I HAVE HAD THERAPY AND STILL DO. IS IT INCONSISTENT WITH MY OTHER MEDICATIONS?

It is on the Bears list. A list of meds unsafe after 65. It can cause falls and increased risk of death
