I know I did this to myself..well with the help of my husband but I went off my celexa without weaning...long story short I was on (for mild depression, slight ocd and major anxiety) effexor for around 1.5 years and then celexa for the last 8 mos....20mg..but i am hypersensitive to meds...sure helped with my anxiety but dh and i had an arguement on night and he flushed my meds so much for tapering...I am feeling much more "here" now that am off them, not in a fog, accomplishing things, remembering to do things, and I chose to not just get another script so please no digs on the dh...my problem...I AM FULL OF PANIC! I have xanax which i have been taking for around a 10 days..just .5mg 1x a day but i don't want to over medicate and i certainly don't want to go thru withdrawls from taking them...guess my question is...how much is to much xanax...how do others deal with anxiety?
i am so sorry about the problems you are having- its so hard, isnt it? ((hugs))
i take .5mg. of Xanax twice a day. when i really am having a hard time with the panic, i take an entire mg. either at bedtime or in the afternoon instead fo jsut .5. i am not sure how mcuh is too much, but you can always call your docotor, explain that you are having an especially hard time and s/he can tell you what is appropriate.
try and hang in there, it WILL get better.
