I was prescribed clonazepam 2mg twice daily for severe panic attacks. This worked for awhile then stopped. Now I have a new Dr. and he has me on alprazolam XR 2mg three times daily. It's not working. Anyone understand why? What do I tell the Dr? I don't want him to think I'm trying to get high. i just have debilitating panic attacks.
It sounds as though you have built up tolerance to benzos. Benzodiazepines are only to be used short term. Have you tried any other medications to help with anxiety, panic attacks such as antidepressants? There are many antidepressants that help with anxiety, panic attacks and depression.
