... more than 3 a day. well this is my first time taking one. Seems as if I'm a bit more calm, but I can still feel my anxiety. Maybe it's just too low of a dose? Also, what exactly does it do? As in, over time will it weaken my anxiety? Or is it more like a bandaid for a panic attack?
Xanax is a quick acting benzodiazepine for anxiety. It will help to calm you though it may not remove all of the anxiety. It does not build in your system like some medications for anxiety such as antidepressants which will weaken your anxiety as you put it. It really is for short term relief of anxiety and panic attacks.
