I no longer respond to benzos. Need some insight.

Posted by jerrympls on October 9, 2004, at 1:03:42

I've been on and off various benzos for the past 13 years. When they first put me on Klonopin I couldn't stay awake - same with Xanax, Ativan, etc. Same with Ambien (even tho it really *isn't* a benzo).

Now, I take 5mg of Xanax XR at night and nothing. I'm still up until 4am. I was on 50 mg of Valium - but nothing - could barely tell I was taking it.

My friend who is being treated for depression and has been for about 10 years - takes 2mg of Xanax and is OUT COLD 20mins later. I'm SO full of envy!!

So what's the deal? Is my brain just too used to benzos? Does my body metabolize them very very rapidly? I want to be able to take 2mg of Xanax and be able to sleep soundly all night!!!

Anyone have any insight???
