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.
