Hi. I take Xanax XR 3 mg every morning at 5 a.m. Due to a pharmacy mix up I ran out today and can't pick it up until 10 a.m. tomorrow morning (it's at a Walgreen's and I thought they were 24 hours - I'm new in town and unfamiliar with store hours.). Will I start to feel withdrawal symptoms due to the five hour delay? I also have a prescription for regular Xanax .5 mg - if I took that at 5 a.m. would it prevent withdrawal? I know it's only a five hour difference, but because my anxiety is severe I'm already panicking about this. Thanks for any help or advice.
While you are wise to be concerned about stopping Xanax abruptly, a few hours should be ok. The 0.5mg Xanax is an acceptable substitute until you get your prescription. Just don't double dose.
