I take between .75 and 1.25 of Xanax daily along with Buspar. This works very well for me right now. My PDoc says if it works take it. My regular MD is not very happy that I am still on Xanax but I use to take 3+ mgs a day and have worked my way down without too much discomfort. I am working to get to the point where I cn use it on an as needed basis only. There was a time when I would have never thought that was possible but the Buspar has helped alot just the short time I have been on it. Xanax is great but you have to be very careful, too easy to keep going up and up etc.
