> Yes, 50 mg of Luvox once a day is a sub-theraputic level. You definitely need a higher dose - why are you only taking it at night? 100 mg TWICE a day would probably be more like it.

In the past I took 150mgs a day. I got it down to 50mgs because my goal was to get off medication all together. I also used to take .5mgs Xanax 3 times a day. I just stopped taking the mid-day does and I was fine. I didn't even have any withdrawl. I'm wondering if the Luvox somehow interacts with the breakdown of Xanax and that could explain why I feel so bad when I try to go any lower than 1mgs of Xanax.

> As for the Xanax, well does it treat your anxiety? Would you rather feel how you do on the drugs or would you rather leave the anxiety, panic, etc. untreated? I suppose that may be a choice you have to make. If the Xanax is really bringing you down though (and you are certain it IS the Xanax), maybe you should get off it. Your doctor should guide you through this.

That is where I'm confused. I don't really know if the Xanax is making me a zombie or it is underlying anxiety. I am leaning more towards the anxiety.

I do think the Xanax has helped in the panic department. I haven't had a severe panic attack since I started taking it 6 years ago. I am able to talk myself through them. I wasn't able to do that before.
