How are you? It's very important that a warning be a added here, regarding the risk of seizures if you suddenly withdraw from this medication. So yes, you do need to be very careful. Is there anything else I can help with?

Xanax/alprazolam scored White with only "11" imprint
I went to go pickup my generic xanax script at a new pharmacy, they charged only 20$ for 90 2mg, so I could not say no to that, the next day I picked it up and the pill was bar shaped with round edges, scorerd to break into .5mg doses like all, excluding dava, are the only imprint is the number 11. It certainly taste like xaxa, as I have used a number of generics, but can not identify this odd, round edge alprazolam pill. Please help ## I'm sorry, but I can't find a listing for this in any of the U.S. prescription drug resources, either. Was this from a U.S. pharmacy? There is always the possibility that it is just very new to the market and isn't listed in the databases, yet. ## Yes it is xanax. It depends on your pharmacy. My uncle had them. I asked him the same ? You have...

highest dosage for xanax
My relative was taking xanax in a low dose. He said his physician increased the amount to 300mg. We think he is mistaken about the dosage amount. What is the dosages for xanax. What is the highest dosage Thanks ## 10 mg ## Hello, Bea! How are you? The highest available dosage of Xanax is 2mgs in the regular release up to 3 times a day and 3mgs in the time released formulation. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Is there anything else I can help with?

My Doc will not refill my xanax Im feeling sick
I was prescribed Prozac & Xanax 10 years ago by my psychiatrist for depression & severe panic attacks. He started me on 1mg 3 times a day. Around Dec 2005 he increased my daily dose to 1 mg - 4 times a day. I have been a patient of his now for 10 years where I see him every 3 months. Through the years, there has been a few times were I had to call to reschedule my appointment and a couple of times he had to do the same. He would call in my meds for the amount I would need to get me through to my next appointment. This month I had an appointment for May 27th I called to reschedule due to transportation. I do not drive now and my ride canceled on me. so, I rescheduled my app. for June 17th I then requested my meds be called in until my appointment, a 3 week supply. She said she wo...

refilled my xanax 15 days late
Hey guys, i have a prescription for xanax 2mg a day, i usually have to go to doctors office every 2 months he writes me a prescription for 30 2mgs with 1 refill. I was out of the country and i refilled my script 15 days late, i have my next doctor visit in 15 days and he will prescribe me again 1 script for 30 2mg with 1 refill. Will i have any problems giving the pharmacy my new prescription just 15 days after i refilled my last one ? Thank you. ## You would so hold on to it as its good for up to 6 months. You could also depending on your State go to another Pharmacy and pay cash for some extras. Many States and Doctors now can find out about this though so I don't suggest it these days! ## I do always pay cash for my prescriptions I don't have insurance ## Then hold on to it. ...

Want to quit or at least drastically reduce my Xanax.
Hi, I am beginning to realize that my Xanax use is causing me to be more depressed (I also take Lexapro and Wellbrutrin for depression). I take the 3mg Ext release but must admit that I don't take it as prescribed. I bite the pill in half and take part in the morning and part in the afternoon. This probably means that I am taking the equivalent of a higher dose. About 15 years ago I started on the.5 MG and as things in my life became more stressful, my Doc kept upping the dose. Oh, did I mention he also has me on 5 mg of Ambien. The Ambien and Xanax used to work well. They don't work like they used to and I do not want yet a higher dosage. On the other hand, I have suffered with anxiety all my life. I would consider taking something like 1mg a day (of Xanax) if it comes to that,...
