> I'm so surprised by this conversation. I have pretty extreme GAD and have been on Xanax in combination with Lexapro for a year and a half. I have never taken more than 1 mg in a day. My prescription is for .25 mg up to 4x a day - and that (120 per month) lasts me generally 6-10 weeks. I had no idea people took and could tolerate such high dosages!

I am also really surprised that such high doses are taken. I went up to 5mg a day and my pdoc was horrified. i was just popping them whenever I had anxiety. After a while if i didnt take any my anxiety came back worse. it came to the stage that my anxiety escalted to psychotic levels and i was put in hospital to withdraw.
