... taken 5mg for 8 days with not much of side effects at all. My question is this would I get side effects at this dose? I am alot calmer and I also take 1 mg xanax daily.I am thinking about going to 10mg next week so that would be 16 days at 5 mg do you think that the 5 is helping me? and will the 10mg give me grief lol I am hoping someone has been through this exact situation. thank you so much
