> i would suggest you take a higher dose of xanax - like 0.5mg. For me, taking that for a few days got my body back to baseline. I think anxiety can be physically reinforcing. Your cortisol shoots up, you feel panicked, your cortisol shoots up higher, you start to fear the sensation and that gets your fight or flight reaction going and on and on. For me, even a few days relief from this got it under control.

Thanks very much. I've taken the Xanax at full strength previously - for days on end because I was concerned I'd have a panic attack at work. Then on the weekends I'd try to go without or just take half. It also can make me very tired. I've had periods where it was under control and then if I have a cumulation of things - I am back to square one. And these are simply 'life events' - my nervous system goes into overdrive. Things that didn't use to bother me - do now.

Thanks again!
