I have been on .25 Xanax for about 8 years. I started taking it at menopause as my general anxiety increased plus it helped me sleep... another menopause issue. I took one pill before bed and rarely needed more. Over the past year I have had some severe anxiety due to health issues and have had to increase to 3-4 of the .25 per day. I know that's still not a lot but how it's working seems to be changing. It almost seems to cause me insomnia now instead of making me sleepy. It still seems to help with anxiety but that has diminished as my health issues have subsided. Do I try and wean off? Or just not take it at bed time? Is my body trying to tell me something??? Any suggestions are appreciated!!
