Re: how do you gain tolerance to a benzo? Caleb462

That was my thinking too, but my pdoc seems to believe that K and X act quite differently, so doubts cross-tolerance (although wouldn't rule it out altogether). In any case, Xanax is a fairly minor player in my treatment, and I'm sure he'll give me what I need, since it's quite clear that I don't get off on benzos so have very low abuse risk.

He did give me some Gabitril, and suggested I try it and see what I think -- apparently some of his colleagues have had good success with it in anxiety patients, and he said he's thinking of trying it himself. I'm curious to test it, but am waiting to settle in on my trial of Strattera (so far, a very good med -- minimal side effects and a great sense of calm/focus).
