Hi! Thank you for such warm welcomes! It makes me feel reeeally good :)
Yeah- my psychiatrist says all mental docs push meds up to triple the therapeutic dose for effect. He was like, "Regular general doctors don't dare to push that high, but psychiatrists always do that."
As an aside- I went totally COLD TURKEY off of xanax in Jan. because my doc is sooooooo anti-xanax and it is like pulling teeth to get it from him. ( I was once addicted to it and bought loads of it via the internet and make the mistake of telling him this <--yeah dumb huh). It was the freakiest, hardest thing to do- the 1st initial days were intense. But I did it! Not to say i dont still have the urge to munch one now and then. Anyone care to share withdrawal symptoms from xanax??
Guess i just babbled above ;)
