He actually refilled my prescription by phone for Xanax last week. I have taken a bit more than prescribed. Most days up to 4 mg. I know most people consider this a big no-no in terms of getting your doc to trust you with abuse and obtaining further scripts.

However, last time when I was having problems I told him due to the panic attacks (OK, I know realize this is what is happening), I explained how I had experimented over a few days, increasing the Xanax, descreasing the Provigil, at various levels. I told him what worked. He prescribed exactly what I wanted.

He trusts me. He knows I'm very intelligent, sensible, rational, and incredibly acutely aware of changes in my body. At my last visit I actually told him I was taking less than prescribed because obviously pushing it too high just leads to fatigue and lack of productivity.

I have more than enough since I just filled this script, than I can take extra for the appointment. I just will have to be careful so that I don't use up too much before the month is done, in case decides to keep it at my current level.
