I have never taken this or any other drug besides aspirine. I have an important event in 3 weeks, which is causing me severe anxiety. Should I wait until the event gets closer? The doctor gave me .25 of zanax to take at night, because I haven't been able to sleep without severe anxiety. I had my first panic attack, last week when my anxiety started.

I went back to the doctor as suggested. I was given .25 to take nightly, and told to take 1/2 of one .25 daily. I'm worried about getting through this event without panic. I weigh 112lbs, do you think it will work? How should I take it on the event day?
