, I've been taking Xanax for flying for 10 years now, I take about .75 to 1.0 mg when I fly. It works wonderfully. My doc also gives me Inderel to take with the Xanax, I think that is a drug that helps with things like stage fright, sweaty palms.
I've talked to people about taking fear of flying courses, but you know what? If a little bit of Xanax helps me and I don't abuse it, I'm taking it.
One thing to do before you fly is to try it at home to see how you react to it. You'd hate to get on a long flight only to find out it doesn't work for you or you are allergic to it.
Good luck and let us know how it's working! Off we go into the wild blue yonder!
