I don’t feel I’m getting the proper dosage of my Xanax. I feel overmedicated... I just want to feel normal. Is 2 mg extended-release and up to 6 mg short-acting considered a high or low dose?

One 2 MG Xanax XR would be about as much as you would want to take. An additional 6 MG of Xanax in any other form, with or without the 2 MG Xanax XR is too much, way too much!

Hello Wendy,

Nobody on this forum is going to be able to tell you what the proper dosage is for you. I'm not trying to be rude or discredit anyone here but every person reacts to medication differently. If you feel that the dosages that you are taking are too much that would be a discussion you need to have with the doctor who is prescribing you the medication.

What I can tell you is that there are definitely lower dosage options that you and your doctor can discuss taking.

Have a wonderful day and I hope that you and your doctor are able to find the right dosage for you.

Those of you with several doctors managing things...for me it’s traumatic brain injury, migraines, Gastroparesis, dystonia.....you get the idea. Who manages your meds? And what if a med from your Neuro doesn’t work with a med from your GI? How do you deal with those kind of issues?

Re: Wendya2j (# 4)

Wendy my comment was made for a reason. If you feel over medicated this is a good thing, many here want more. The real problem is when you eventually lose the provider of Xanax. Unless you other providers would be willing to step in, having to stop Benzos especially at large doses and yes 6 mg is a hefty dose can make you very sick if you have to withdraw. The new trend is for Doctors to shy off of prescribing them at all
