... helping me at all but I notice when I take 1mg it takes away my very big anxiety attack. I was wondering how can I ask my psychologist to up the dose to 1mg twice a day. I just don't want her to think I'm abusing them it's just my anxiety is so bad that 0.5mg isn't working. Just typing this and asking for advice is giving me a very big anxiety attack. What should I do should I ask her to up the dose or should I deal with the attacks. I'm also afraid she will cut me off them and put me on something else. Please help I don't know what to do
I'd be honest but wonder why you are so against non-benzos. The idea is to give you relief from anxiety attacks, not to make you nice and mellow before you turn the TV on. Having said that and you having only just started you might find they give you the minimum they think will be effective; after a month you can be honest and say the 0.5mg first thing in the morning is just not cutting it and in all likelihood you will get an increase.
I called my dr when my dosage wasn't working, and he told me to try taking two. Maybe call her and tell her it's just not working well enough, and she will most likely tell you to take 1mg. How long has it been since she wrote you them? Or just be honest with her at the appointment. Be honest and say exactly what you wrote here.
