They make a 3mg er version but it is not immediate release. It is slowly released over a 14-24 hour period so you wont get the peaks and valleys of the ir version. The wax matrix polymer is almost impossible to destroy so even crushing it up or diluting the pill in alcohol and dissolving will have some effect but not alot of making it immediate release. I am prescribed 2mg er and i take 3 a day and my panic attacks are gone, thank you, but i miss that slight buzz from the ir formula. xanax xr is a great drug for panic attacks and is very hard to abuse. you would have to take 10 3mg and divide that over a 14-24 hour period and thats would be the ir release per hour, almost like an iv drip., I know people who pop 10 2mg ir at once and im like not me i sleep. "Thank god for the xr version they come in .5,1mg,2mg and 3mg and i cant abuse them, I love it and my friends dont want them or ask me for them anymore,its against the law anyway and god forbid anything every happens to one of them. My girl gets panic attacks so i would give her one and be with her but shes on klonopin now and i hate klonopins. hope that helps. psych do they make sublingual xanax and what strength.
they have 3mg,but rarely EVER given to a patient,in my state anyway. when i was see a psychiatrist,he flipped out to find i was on 2mg 3x a day,and couldnt believe that they gave me that,and said i'd have to be in a hospital to go off those,i mean,he was actually angry,lol,but i need them,truly,i have suffered the worst panic attacks,and it got to the point i couldnt leave my house,once on those,things have been "normal" for me,whatever normal is,lol. ok,3mg is the answer.
I don't know of any physician that would prescribed the 3 mg Xanax Bars. I get the 2mg bars and if you take a whole bar, plan on sleeping for quite a while. I break them into thirds on the scoreline. I found this to be a powerful medication. I don't think they can prescribe the 3 mg. Anymore. My Dr. claims they no longer are available in Michigan.
