i take xanax for extreme anxiety. i'm only supposed to take 3 a day but i often find myself taking 2 or 3 at a time every 5 hours. they're 1 milligram by the way, but still. If i only take one it doesn't work. I don't know what to do, if anyone has ever gone through this kind of thing, support or advice would be so appreciated. Thank you ladies.

  • i was perscribed that but havent taken it yet, but if you find ourself taking it that much you should contact your doctor, you may need to be put on a daily medicine. thats what my doc told me to do.

  • You need to speak with your Dr. I have it for anxiety as needed and I rarely have to use it anymore. Xanax is highly addictive. Be careful and go spaek with your Dr. You should not be having to take that many.

  • I take Xanax also for similar situations. So, I would think you just slept all the time. one time I kinda overdosed and they put me in a looney bin so be careful!!!
