Having an MRI and have panic disorder along with closterphobia, is 5 mg of xanax too much for he procedure, that is what the doctor prescribed.
It really depends on your metabolism, or how much you weigh sometimes, however, Xanax 5mg, is pretty strong, are you sure it is not .5mg? Sometimes we do not see the (.) before the 5> just want to make sure.
I've been give Valium 10mg. before that procedure for the same reasons as you. The Xanax is fast acting, and it does leave your system equally as fast. Valium is slower acting and lasts longer. I wish you luck, and ask for them to put a dry cloth over your eyes too, it sometimes help to not look a the environment you're in, and close your eyes and relax as much as you can, let your mind take you too the beach, or beside a slow burning camp fire. You'll be surprised at how fast the test is over, and you're soon ready to go home. Best of Luck~ Let us know how you do OK
