My doc is like yours and thinks it's very safe; although it may be difficult to quit. So are blood pressure medications, etc.
It was originally used, and still is used, for seizures at levels of 8 to 10 mg/day. If you can do well on 0.5 mg/day, more power to you. The normal for panic types is maybe 3 mg/day. I used to take that much but have tapered down to half that now, thanks to therapy and CBT.
