With many medications the side effects should start to decrease within 7-10 when you have a dose adjustment.

The exact amount of time depends on things like how long you have been taking the medication, how big the adjustment, your metabolism, etc.

Increasing your xanax could be making you feel tired. You will get use to that. I use to take four milligrams a day when I was under a lot of stress. Now I take one and a half. And do fine. I hope you get use to the meds. IF you keep feeling tired, you may have to decrease the xanax. I hope that this works out for you. Keep posting.

Hugs, Karen
