> I have always been pro benzo use but have had the most terrible thing happen this past winter. My xanax after 3 years of use became completely ineffective. My maintenance dose was 2mg per day and when I upped the dose to 4mg began to get paradoxical symptomolgy. I am now tapering off xanax after 3 years which is no picnic. I am going slow but have had most of my panic symptoms return worse than before. Each of us is different and I pray you guys and gals don't have this happen but suddenly I would need elephant size doses of xanax or klonopin to stay panic free. I am currently on low dose prozac while I taper and it is helping somewhat. I have no idea what I will do or how I will be functional again without the benzos but they simply stopped working. I am a sober alcoholic....maybe I am just prone to develope tolerance to downer type drugs. I guess I will have to wait for pagloclone to come out or just endure through a dose of antidepressants....who knows now thAT i AM FORCED TO ACTUALLY STAY ON PROZAC MAYBE IT WILL work in the long run.

Sorry that you are having trouble Gil. Perhaps some of past history w/alchohol has something to do with it - I don't know. There is also a very small population that have a genetic "predisposition" to becoming addicted that figures into the equation...
