I posted this in Panic as well because right now, well I am in a "Panic". My doctor just called and said he was switching me off of my Xanax since I was going through them too fast and putting me on Xanax XR. The problem with the Xanax was the short half life. As soon as it wore off, the anxiety was still there and I'd have to take another. So...sometimes I eat them like candy when I have non-stop anxiety like today.
Will the Xanax XR keep me mellowed all day? I'm so afraid that it will be too weak. Please I think he's getting tired of treating me after 2 1/2 years with this because he said I should go see a psychiatrist.
I asked why because the psychiatrist I've seen in the past have done no more for me than he has. They don't have any solutions either other than the meds and some talk therapy, but I get that from my gen. prac. doc. who has been treating me all along. I hope I haven't made him mad. I'm starting to panic.
Please....anyone....what experience did you have with the Xanax XR? Thanks sooooooo much!
