If I took that much Xanax all at once I'd be terribly drowsy (if not asleep), but I'm glad that works for you. I tried taking Xanax PRN, but I developed severe anxiety and agoraphobia.

By the time a panic situation were to develop, it would be too late for me to take Xanax. My pdoc advised that because of an embalance in my brain, Xanax only works for me when I have a steady amount built up in my system. Although I take Xanax everyday, I have reduced my daily dose from 3 mg. to 2 mg. per day by taking glutamine and taurine supplements. Since I can't take Klonopin, I'm considering changing to Ativan, although someone suggested to me on another Board that Ativan is not as strong as Xanax, even though they believe it is more sedating.

> For the record, I take 2mg of Xanax p.r.n. to halt a panic attack. Also have the option of taking less for general anxiety. I've had the same bottle of 15 2mg tabs for 5 months, I think there are about 10 left.
