I was seeking an alternative to Xanax since I seem to be tolerant to it.

I need to take 3mg just to get sleepy and sleep maybe 2.5-3 hours. If I take 4mg, I will sleep maybe 5 hours. (In the beginning, .5mg would help me sleep for 7 hours!). If I take 1mg for anxiety now it doesn't really do much except begin to make me tired.

Even if I have 5mg/day for several weeks, I can stop without a porblem (other than having NORMAL anxiety from my GAD), i.e. no withdrawals. Therefore, I do not think I have any physical or psychological dependence to it. I do not want to up the dosage on the Xanax because obviously, due to my tolerance, it has diminishing returns.

Since valium worked as well as Xanax did when I first started taking Xanax, I was interested in that, because my pdoc prescribed it to me for 2 months in 2003 (after which my Xanax worked again like it once did), but when I asked recently, my pdoc was hesitant (strangely). I was asking here to see what others have used with good results as an anxiolytic/somnolence.

The last time I told her the Xanax wasn't working for insomnia she gave me some samples or Seroquel which made me feel almost as ill as trazadone...I just want my old Xanax back (pre-tolerance) and do not know what to ask for instead.
