I am prescribed 1 mg Xanax once daily. I ran out yesterday but can't get an appointment to see my doctor until Monday. If I just stop the med I will have a seizure. My husband is prescribed 1mg xr Xanax. If I take his which is broken in half will it be the same as taking 1 of mine?
If you cut an extended release tablet in half it becomes instant release at half the dose.
