I currently take two .5 mg. A day, but it wears off. I don't want to take more BC I don't want to run out before my next prescription is filled. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Anyone ever ear of kava kava?

I take the exact amount daily as you do. Steer clear from caffeine!!!! If you think your going to run out half them until your next RX is ready. Better to have small amount than None at all. The detox sucks

If they wear off before the end of the day try taking half in the morning and half at night or mid day.  Be sure to talk with your dr first though changing around your meds on your own isn't a good idea

I suggest you only take zanax for a short time. I was on that dose of klonopin for a few years and had a very bad time withdrawing. I was having horrible side effects for 6+ months. It seriously was the worst time of my life.

I just started taking 5-HTP a few days ago and it seems to be helping my anxiety. I don't know how it would interact with your zanax though. I wouldn't take anything without consulting a doctor first.

Valerian Root! it is an awesome over the counter herb that you can get from any pharmacy/walgreens/cvs type store. its an herb in a capsule, its smells horrible, but it does wonders for anxiety! and its natural!
