I want to make sure before I take this. I was on 0.5mg Xanax and my doctor switched to 0.25mg which is doing nothing If I take 2 at a time that will equal what I was on before? Thanks just making sure before I do it.
I am on 0.5 Xanax myself. When I try to cut down to 0.25mg it doesn't do anything either. I don't know how long you were on 0.5mg, but the body becomes tolerant to the higher dose. I used to be on 0.25mg alprazolam, but my doctor upped it to 0.5mg because the lower dose was not helping my anxiety any longer. Xanax is a very addictive drug and over time one needs higher & higher dosages.
Take care & stay well.
Yes, 2, .25 mg tablets are equal to 1, .5 mg tablet. You may want to try taking just 1, .25 mg tablet even though if seems like it is not doing anything. It is doing something. To test this, try taking nothing at all!
Good luck and all the best.
