I've never been on the XR, but I take 1mg of the regular three times a day and that isn't enough because it only lasts about 4 hours. Also, like care-bear said, the XR does not last a whole day like it's supposed to. I've heard that alot of people have to take that 2 times a day. It definitely is not worth the money. You need to switch to a longer lasting benzo. Maybe Valium? Librium is good at a high dose. 25mg is the highest mg that Librium comes in, but if your anxiety or panic is bad enough you would probably take two at a time at least. I've found it to be weak so I would need at least 2-3 25mg Librium at a time to calm me down. Now Valium is different(at least for me)and it will work for a major attack quicker than Xanax and last longer. For me it's 10-15mg of Valium and I'm calm within 30-45 min. With Xanax it takes 2 hours sometimes,,crazy. Just try to get on a longer acting benzo and you should be good. Also, the half life with Xanax XR is the same as regular Xanax. It just takes longer to dissolve so you're supposed to feel it for alot longer(24 hrs). Not the case. The half life is still the same. Don't waste your money on some brand name b*llshit when the generic does the same thing. Just think about the longer acting ones. Valium, Librium, Klonopin, and Tranxene (I forgot about that one).Try something else if you don't get what you want off of Xanax. I know what you're saying about the Xanax not working for long. Try Valium. -"Why won't someone just fix our brains?" -DMS
