Is it normal that 1.125 mg of alprazolam didn't remove the whole anxiety in the peak moment?

Hi people,
 
I took 1.125 mg (one and one eighth mg; maybe a bit less, as the tablet wasn't divided precisely by me...) for some very stressing situation (generally, some kind of public performance in front of pretty many people, which is nearly a horror in my social phobia). It worked pretty well most of the time, but in the "peak" moment I felt still marked anxiety (although it was bearable). confused
 
I take this drug only occasionally. I read it can impact negatively on the one's memory if the dose is too high, so I didn't take higher dose.
 
Is it normal in social phobia? Maybe the dose was still too low for me? What's the highest single dose of this drug, which doesn't impact on the memory? I don't want to compromise myself with some strange "after-too-high-dose-of-drug behavior", you know...

And maybe lorazepam would be good for such occasions? I have although read that it can really badly impact on the memory - what lorazepam dose is the highest if you want to avoid this "amnestic" impact? But maybe it's simply not so good in the social anxiety?
 
I know these drugs can addict, but I use such ones very carefully and rarely. I will ask a dr about it, but I'd like to ask you as well.
 
Cheers to you! :-)

Good Morning Licho,

I am confused regarding what dose you took of the Xanax...........your post reads :

"I took 1,125 mg". would you clarify that please.................

I am guessing you meant .125 mg, but to be on the safe side if you would clarify then I will post.

Thanks,

Kitt

Oh, yes! yeah

I've forgotten totally, that in English "," is used for "the thousands", and "." is used for the fractions... Inversely as in Polish.

Yes, it'd be a bit too high dose, lol... :-)

I've actually taken 1.125 mg of it (approximately, as I've written).

Cheers! :-)

Thanks Licho for clarifying the info.

Xanax hghest single dose manufactured here is 2mg and a 3mg XL (long acting)

However I cannot quote the highest dose your physician would order of any of the meds. 

At the dose you took 1.125mg you used a combo of two different strengths of the med.  Therefore just because the highest regular dose manufactured is 2 mg your physician may adjust the dose to his discretion.

Your best source on this question is your physician.

I hope you get this sorted out soon.

Take care and keep  posting.
