I have been taking Lonazep + Alprazolam since 2011 for the treatment of mental stress, anxiety and also sleeplessness. Both, I am taking daily at night before sleep in the doses of 0.5mg each. Now it seems that 0.5mg of Alprazolam is not effective for the purpose of sleep disorder. Can I increase its dose without consultation with my doctor?

No I wouldn't do that without speaking to your Doctor first

Xanax is not really an effective sleep aid anyway due to it's rather short half-life. Lonazep is the same as clonazepam isn't it? Kind of strange that a doctor would have you on two different benzos.

I use trazodone for sleep and it works great for me. I also take up to 3mg/day of xanax for PTSD/Panic Disorder. I only use the trazodone when I really can't sleep but when I do use it i'm out within 20 minutes and sleep a solid 6-8 hours. I typically feel refreshed and in a good mood the next day. You may talk to your doctor about this, if you want. I would nix the xanax. Increasing the dose is only going to lead to more issues down the road (withdrawal, dependence).

Everyone is different that's just my personal empiricial opinion.

If you increase your dose you'll end up running out early, and benzo withdrawal is not only horrible, but dangerous for you, i.e. possibility of seizures, so be careful...

It is never a good idea to change the dosage of any medication, without your physician's approval.

The NIH warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, and irritability.

Why are you taking both? Since they are both Benzodiazepines, Clonazepam, and Alprazolam, it is basically like doubling up on the same medication.
