ive been taking it for a little over a month.
 
 
Answered by Dr. Sudhir Kumar 5 minutes later
Brief Answer: Then these symptoms could happen. Detailed Answer: If you have been taking xanax for about a month, then, the symptoms of soreness/weakness of muscles could occur after the effect of xanax is wearing off. This is because there is a bit of dependence that could develop with xanax. Best wishes, Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology)
