Taking more mediction than prescribed is going down a slippery slope. This medication is habit forming and can be terribly difficult to stop, once your body becomes dependant. Taking this med daily will cause dependance in as early as one week. I feel like you are saying it takes 1 mg to work, meaning it takes that much for you to "feel" it. You can get relief from your anxiety without "feeling" the medication. I would advise that you only take this medication as needed, and the dose prescribed. If you need it more often, or the dose does not work, you are supposed to talk to your doctor, not take whatever you want. This is dangerous. There are many meds that are good for anxiety, and if you need it more than one to two times a week, and anti-depressant such as Paxil would be a better choice for you. I would be very careful doing what you are doing.
