Re: Not sure what to do....on Xanax
A lot of Drs. won't prescribe Xanax. I saw a woman Dr. who told me to stop taking Xanax and take Ativan instead. Ativan is just as addictive as Xanax!! Anyway, Xanax works well for me at only 0.25 mgs. at bedtime and either none during the day or once during the day. I'm also taking Lexapro 10 mgs. 20 mgs. Lexapro worked great for my anxiety, but it made me really tired & depressed. Im now debating whether to try Prozac <BECAUSE> I gained weight on Lexapro and the 10 mgs. of Lexapro doesn't help the anxiety as much. Try to find a more understanding Dr. I know it's a hassle, but I was able to find a better Dr. and he doesn't make a big deal out of me taking a low dose of Xanax.
