... because of my anxiety so high. I know when it's going to happen so I take a Xanax & sit or lay very still & it passes. I didn't get my XR filled due to being afraid I may still get spells & have nothing to stop them. I refilled my xanax instead. Could someone please tell me their experience with the Xanax XR vs the Xanax? And, is it safe to take xanax & Xanax XR together?Thank you!
With xanax xr you don't need to take it as often, whereas you take the regular xanax right when you have a panic attack. I wouldn't think it a good idea for you to take both together unless your doctor said to do so. Did your dr say it was alright to take them together at the same time?
You may want to try a different med altogether. Xanax is a short lasting pill. Klonopin is a benzo as well that is longer lasting. Xanax is 1-2 hrs. Where klonopin is 6-8 hrs. Like previously discussed, I don't recommend taking both if they are having these did effects. Anxiety is tough, it takes a while to get the right "cocktail" that is right for your condition. I personally am on 1mg. Klonopin 2x a day. For me this is perfect, I too used to be on xanax but found myself taking more than prescribed because it didn't last as long. I agree in looking into alternative anxiety meds like ; celexa, lexapro or any of the many out there and stay on the xanax while experimenting, because it does take about 6 weeks to see results. Good luck to you.
