Yes it is safe if you've been on it for awhile and it is what the doctor recommends. When I was in the hospital the Drs gave me 8 mg a day as well kept me on 8 mg at home. I would think klonopin would be a better choice for long term use as it stays in your system longer unlike xanax which is a short acting benzo.
What is the amount prescribed for you? Safe depends on the Dr's instructions and awareness of all the meds you're taking and other facts about your health, diet, presence of alcohol, etc. Unique from person to person.
The max maintenance dose is 4 mg a day. How long have you been on it? You might do better with something like klonopin, or one of the other meds to prevent anxiety, rather then trying to treat it all the time.
12894 Yes as long as taken like the doctor has prescribed your within the dose range i was upto 8 mg daily years ago for my agoriphobia it requires higher doses and yes you here people freak out because with some conditions you have no choice but to be on higher doses when i was on that dose it was for almost 15 years we have been able to get it down some now but everyone is different and the way the drug works for us don't listen to other people listen to your doctor different people require different amount and i have never had problems when we have lowerd or up'd the dose you take it right there is a big difference between addiction and dependent They have found to that those of us that really require these dose are just so glad that they can do things that they could not and funtion pretty normal abuse is the last thing in our mind due to the fact you finally have something that is working for you..Good luck and hope it keeps working for you.
