... daily since 1988. I've found that my anxiety/panic has been getting more prevalent over the last year or so. Should I see someone to bump up the dose after all these years or possibly find out about any "as needed" drugs?
The more you use benzos, the less effective they are. It is called tolerance. Benzos really should be used short term only for anxiety. In the long run, they compound the problem. They should be used short term until a long term drug and counseling on coping mechanisms can kick in. If you are treating anxiety with pharmaceuticals only, it sets you up for a worse outcome and ever increasing anxiety and a need for higher and higher doses. You need to learn coping mechanisms that are not pharmacological.
