Does Xanax 2 mg XR work better then the regular 2 mg bars twice daily? My anxiety is off the charts - it's that bad.
Xanax is a short-acting drug. Xanax XR or Xanax Extended Release is a long-acting drug. Xanax is taken by people with panic attack every 4-6 hours. That’s about four times a day. However, Xanax XR is more advantageous as it can only be taken once a day and lasts for 24 hours. Xanax is taken all throughout the day since it’s short-acting. Xanax XR is taken once every morning. Thus, the drug will take effect for the whole day, and one will not have to worry about underdosing or overdosing.
Hope this helps!
