I have taken the same dose (.25) for 4 years now.  I don't take it on a regular basis, just when things are particularly rough.     I take it before bed because it makes me sleepy, and when I wake up, I'm refreshed and I don't have a single care in the world until around 5pm later in the day.  I also get a bonus night of good sleep as well.

A low dose of Xanex should be fine, but only if taken *as needed* and not on a regular basis because benzodiazepines have the great potential to cause addiction and other side effects, also withdrawal if suddenly stopped. However, during, panic attacks, it should be okay.

You are all so kind to answer me, I thank you all so much.  I'm not doing it until next weekend. When work is done.  (Maybe) I will prob just keep carrying it around. my doc did scribe a low dose, she said take half, and see how you feel. She knows I 'm a wreck about this, and in general. Thank u all, I really needed to hear this from all of you. Maybe now I will find some courage to do it, because you all did. Thank u, thank you, thank u. Hope you all are well.  :action-smiley-065:

My wife has GAD and takes Lexapro daily. On really bad nights she will take a Xanax for sleep. You would never know she is on any meds unless she told you.

My uncle in-law takes Xanax as well and he too....you would have no clue.

I read a forum where a guy was describing some acute anxiety he developed from some bad eye floaters. He said he used Xanax as a tool to get better. He used walking, diet and Xanax to calm his mind and after 2 months he was able to taper off Xanax and be his old self again.
