I think the short life of xanax can make it a poor choice for continuous coverage (it was not good for me), and the potential for developing tolerance is greater. I've heard mixed reviews of the XR version of xanax, so I'm still deciding.

LOL, I don't care if it's Jay or Scott. Interesting, I've never tried the XR version myself. Take both dexedrin and provigil together? I'm not sure. I think you could. Provigil is a CNS stimulant, but it's compared to a couple cups o coffee. Have u tried it with wellbutrin?
Right now, nothing is being addressed for me. I was simply doing a valium taper, but started much to low, and in serious tolerance from the point i was at. So we'll see what happens with that.
