  • I have heard good things about prozac and xanex, my son takes prozac and it has been amazing for him, he has told me how much better he feels on it. My best friend takes xanex and she told me it made a huge difference for her. Every person reacts differently and sometimes it is a matter of getting the dosage right. My sons doctor told me that she has football players who take less than my son (and it is a low does my son is on) and she has kids smaller than my son who need higher doses to get it working right. It has to do with how your body metabolizes it, my son cant take a 20 mg pill or it messes him up but he can take 2 -10 mg pills and he is just fine.

  • This is a coversation to have with a therapist, not strangers, not an internist. Taking these meds without therapy is like taking painkillers for a broken leg without getting a cast.
