I have a friend who was three small children who is taking a 1mg xanax 8x daily and I am very concerned about the effects this medication is having on them. Just wanting to know if this is a safe or normal dose. Thank you.
I agree with Stephen. That is way too much xanax. Try to see if you can help her get into a program such as AA. A doctor also needs to be involved to help her taper off as she cant stop taking the xanax ubruptly or she could have a seizure. I took 8 mg xanax a day after a truamatic situation, but I was also in a hospital during the months I was on xanax. If she doesn't want your help you may need to use a little tough love. Does she drive while on xanax?
