Discussions that mention xanax

Anxiety board


Hi,

If your Dr. has said you can double the dose, it should be ok. I take 1 mg xanax four times a day. I've taken it for years. It doesn't make me sleepy, but I didn't start on that level.

I hope things go ok and you get everything done by Sunday night....Take Care....Connie

My dosage is .25mg not 2.5

I am seeing my primary care doctor for my anxiety but not all PCD's are Xanax friendly which is one of the reasons I decided to go with the family doctor. My appointment is not until April 3rd so I really do not know what course of action he plans to take.

Sorry about that! I've misread.

Actually, the only person who prescribed Alprazolam was a neurologist. I had not gone back to him because he felt that I had no "problem" so I shouldn't be taking anything. He said he was a neurologist, and felt that my problem was more psychological than physical.

However, according to some research I've done, those who suffer nerological disorders (either small or extensive), are really lacking a chemical imbalance that connects brain with nerve activity. And medication such as this, helps "make the connect" between nerves & brain.

Well I hope I can overcome this on my own. I guess, society sometimes, is the reason we are all on some type of med! We need to understand that we all need to help each other & not judge each other! I do not know which is more difficult: ignoring judgement, or NOT passing judgement ;)
