my apologies but you said youre taking an anti depressant and - Xanax....heres what I read...... (alprazolam) is a benzodiazepine (ben-zoe-dye-AZE-eh-peen). Alprazolam affects chemicals in the brain that may be unbalanced in people with anxiety. Xanax is used to treat anxiety disorders, panic disorders, and anxiety caused by depression. Xanax may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.n anti depressant. .
You joined this forum for input ,and with my past 12 yrs in the Philippines I just know what life is about there in most places. Too much anxiety etc can get you killed there. Just my 02 cents.....unless you will live in a bubble you will need all your faculties to keep you safe.

Hmmm.. Iím confused. Why would you take Xanax and an antidepressant if you donít have depression issues? Recreation?

Perhaps some form of recreational medication mixed with god knows what to appease the OP? It would seem that Marky is not fighting depression/anxiety and only asking a/the question to fulfil his needs.

Marky, Vitamin supplements here are 2 to 3 times the price of Australia, want something different? Good luck and BTW what are you fighting taking those medications if not depression? Open up sport and others will help.

Cheers, Steve.

I've had problems and been medicated for 30 years now. As long as I have the meds I need, I am perfectly normal. Perhaps this forum is not the best place to find out info about the Philippines.

Well sorry you feel this way,you asked for our opinions...The Philippines is a third world country...different rules and ideas on things. Foreigners are killed there fairly regularly......maybe you shouldn't ask if you don't want to hear the replies. Much different than Ohio...not a place to go without a safety net.

These medications could be for many uses and I have talked with people who also take them to help with tremors.

So maybe it's possible to get a generic form they do have some chained generic pharmacies here that would have a much lower price than the branded ones.

Then all he needed to do was tell us that...but he stated one he took was for depression. We are just offering him truth about things....no need to get mad and close the door. You, as well as I know the truths about the way things are from living in the real population for yrs.
