HOwever I know with past "XR" experiences with other drugs, it should wear off by mid afternoon or so. I would have thought my pdoc would have known this however, but he still wants me on 2mg once daily. When it's working I feel great, although I feel 3mg would be the perfect dose.

hello there....no need to feel like a bother....it seems to me as if you have the answer at hand....you have stated that a higher dose is called for later in the day, and that indicates that the 2 mg XR has died-down, so to speak, when you need a bit more. perhaps a couple of approaches....one would be to simply ask for a higher dose of the XR...the other that comes to mind is to ask for some small dose immediate release xanax (0.25 or 0.5 mg) tablets to keep on hand and take as needed when you are in a social situation later in the day....check with your doctor and, most importantly, decide if either suggestion or another you might be mulling over is appropriate....all the best, chemist
