Everyone responds differently. ..you may just need a more substantial dose...
...or a different benzo, as there are others that may be more effective for you, as a unique individual. I would say most doctors prescribe Xanax first...but that doesn't mean it is effective for everyone.:)
It's good to hear you are consulting with another doctor...you need to feel like your needs are being met!
Let us know how it goes, okay?
p.s. I believe the way you are taking your pill is fine. Many meds are taken sublingualy. If the taste is too off putting, you could try crushing it and mixing with water or juice.
