The secret to safe ongoing use of Xanax is in the dosage. It needs to be real low but for long term use low and consistent in the bloodstream. My doctor started me out on 2 MG twice a day. Half the time it worked then I was waiting out the other six hours it didn't. After a couple of years I found a doctor who knew what he was doing. He said no more antidepressants it doesn't work on what you have. He changed my dosage to .
5 mg four times a day.
It doesn't always do the trick but allows me to function now at least at home. For example I'm fixing to go to The Cracker Barrel for supper. Between taking an extra pill before leaving and turning my hearing aids way down I can stand being there LOL.

My dosage is .5 mg at bedtime, but I usually cut the pill in half. It does not take much to knock me out. I’ve taken six or seven sleeping and anti-anxiety meds over the last 25 years. Xanax is the best. Ambien worked for me for over a decade before unexpectedly spinning up into a monster. Ambien and Lunesta both cause extreme agitation now. I disliked Klonopin because it was so slow to metabolize. Rozerim had no effect at all.
