i was wondering if the xanax xr would be better suited for me? is there anything different in the xanax xr th
I was on xanax 6mg ir for years and switched to xanax xr. I now take 2mg in the morning and 2mg in the late/early evening. It works great for me and no panic attacks. at first it took about 3 weeks for my body to adjus. t from the ir because of the short half life and my body wanting that or expecting that peak. But I swear by the xr version it last longer and now i dont need to worry about it wearing off. I would suggest to take it at least twice a day though-half life is about 10-15 hours. You may even be able to take less of it too than what your current dosage is now. let me know.
The Xanax XR is extended-release, it seems like that would be your best bet if you really are needing 6 doses a day. Like stated above you wont have that feel of immediate relief but after you take it steady for a few days it should be to your benefit because it is a constant relief or in other words prevention of anxiety/panic.
