ive had insomnia for some time and cant sleep with out xanax, i need at least a mg to get sleepy,and it takes like a month to see my doc,He said itd help with my anxiety as well, the insomnia doesnt tie to the anxiety, i told him i have back pain as well and the doc said itd help it a bit. but really hasnt. suggestions would greatly be appreciated
Xanax is one of those meds that you can build a tolerance to. What you could do is call your doc in the morning and ask if it's ok to increase it to 1mg. That way you can take 2 at bed time. If the doc ok's this, they will know you will run out early and can phone in a refill if you don't have any. But that's what I would do, call my doc and ask. It's not unusual at all to need an increase after taking this medication for a while. Good luck and hope you get some sleep.
the last bottle i had before this refill i was taking 1mg a night instead of .5mg and i ran out in 15 days i called the nurse she said she'd okay it, i went to the pharmacy they told me no, because my actual doc was on vacation for 2 weeks, so i may need to talk to him in person, and he gave me tramadol prior for back pain didnt help, and before the xanax he gave me 2 different anti depressants to make me drowsy and i dont have depression,
