I have been Rx'd Klonopin (1.5-3mg daily dose increased over 3 years), Ativan (0.5-1mg prn 2xs daily over 8 months) and currently have been prescribed Valium 10mg 1/2 to 1 tab twice daily prn. I have been on it for at least 5 years and it is no longer helping me or not as much. I am having very severe panic attacks (abrupt and need relief faster than the Valium can provide) however the Valium will help with general anxiety through my day better. Could my Dr rx a small ammount of Xanax (maybe 0.5mg- 1mg prn #30) for panic attacks only and still treat my social phobias and gen anxiety with Valium or does everything need to change?
