Just tell the doctor the truth, it is not working for you, because you have built up tolerance to the med. I´d stick to the truth of the matter, you are not abusing and you are not an addict. That is what I did with my Dr. for klonopin, and the truth prevails my firend.-
Good luck and take care.-
I just told my doctor that my 1mg Kolonpin was not working any more and that I had stumbled upon some 2mg xanex and took them 3 times a day and it was working AMAZINGLY, and he said ok and wrote the script ( take 1-2 pills 3 times a day as need for anxiety) and this was for the white 2mg xanex.
I'm 35 & sadly I was on Xanax 1mg 3xs a day since I was 16yrs old! With that said I don't wish upon my worst enemy... what I go through on a daily basis. It got to where the dosage was up'ed but, same 3x's a day! I refer to it as the Devils skettles... I've since switched to kpins for about 2.5 yrs now and it is much better. No I don't get that euphoria mostly due to my tolerance level. I'm now on 2mgs 3x's a day 90qty per month! Short term use... Xanax hands down but, one like me with panic disorder... Kpin is by far better! Best wishes
You're either misdiagnosed or unwilling to work on your anxiety on an outpatient level. Benzos were manufactured for short term use. In crisis. At some point you're supposed to work through whatever is making you anxious. Do your part and you won't need so many meds. Withdrawal is worse than the anxiety that started, be aware you can all get seizures and die from cessation.
OR, misdiagnosed. No one should need a bandaid all day every day. Get a new assessment of symptoms. See a therapist. Anxiety disorders are treated with cbt, lots of other techniques aside from meds. Benzos are for emergencies. Bandaids. Look into SSRI or clonidine, whatever is the so abusable or creates a dangerous tolerance. The amount you're looking for is for a 96 year old on hospice. Yeah itll feel good but it's not necessary. Go to therapy. Work on the anxiety.
