Was taking 1mg Xanax twice a day but for insurance purposes my doctor changed me to 1 mg Ativan twice a day. Would that account for my symptoms of withdrawal for the past 3 weeks? Am I only getting half of what I was used to taking?
This question has also been asked and answered here: Ativan vs Xanax - What is the difference?
You would need 2mg to equal 1mg of Xanax. I have both. I am on 4mg of Xanax at bedtime (have been for over 10 years but it's the max dosage for this state per day) I have 10mg Valium and they do NOTHING for me. So please know there's a huge difference in Xanax, Valium etc. each person responds differently. Many of my meds aren't covered by insurance so not Knowing what state you are in, try GoodRX for coupons If you decide to stay on Xanax or pay cash. Those drugs in generic are not too expensive. Did you ask your dr to ask the insurer to override ? Or write for generic etc?
