My Dr. has
for many years allowed me to keep xanax on hand for anxiety. I would use it in very tiny doses (a pinch only of a .25 mg tablet) maybe for a dose each of 3 days or maybe not for 6 months. Now that I need it, going through psycotherapy, it was working great and now makes my heart pound. Tried ativan and it does the same thing. Have found the supplement L-Theanine to work well for calming though not strong enough at times. Has anyone else had this experience where a drug works well and then not. Dr. agrees addiction not an issue or any form of overuse.
Xanax now creates anxiety rather than helping?
