Paradoxical Reaction to Xanax
I went to my family doctor with some stomach complaints. For some reason, he decided that I need xanax. Being ignorant of this drug, I thought he gave me zantac. A day or two later, I was at a teachers' meeting and found that I just could not sit still.
I was fidgeting in my chair, getting up and just constantly needing to move. I had no clue what is happening until a day later, when I was at another meeting and could not sit still. It was embarrassing! I finally thought to look at the pill bottle and saw that he gave me xanax. Of course, I stopped taking it and never took it again. Btw, I was diagnosed with reflux by another doctor.
