I'm sorry. In my last post I didn't realize that your doctor wasn't willing to increase your Xanax. Many doctors are afraid of possible Benzo abuse. If he is that adamant about it, ask him to only give you one weeks amount of the drug at a time so he can monitor exactly how much you're taking. If the anxiety is that bad and he is refusing to work with something that could be of help to you, then I would find a new doctor. This is YOUR therapy - NOT his. You are the one that is suffering and seeking relief. If you have an OK relationshiip with your doctor than speak with again on the subject, and ask him to give you a "trial period" with a benzo. If he sees it's working for you and you're not taking more than the prescribed dosage, maybe he'll have a different outlook. If he doesn't, search for a doctor that will work with you. Communication and respect is absolutely necessary!!
