I just posted recently and with some updated posting again. I have been going through on and off again anxiety for the past 5 wks. I have been dealing with anxiety for many years now and with the exception of part of 2009 has been mostly under control. I now find myself since April 6th getting really bad panic attacks and dry heaving every couple wks. I take .50 mg of clonezapam in the morning with 20 mg of Paxil and .25 mg of clonezaplam at night to help sleep. The .25 at night being a new addition since the onset of this anxiety. Now that this reoccurring panic has occurred my doc suggested that I take .25 mg of Xanax 3x a day ( 3 - .25 mg pills). I think this amount will sedate a horse and that's not what I want. I have a job and I have a family I don't to be a walking zombie. I am seeing another psyc doc on the 20th so I hope to get better advice. In the meantime should I be taking this much Xanax ? My current psychiatrist acts like it's ok I'm not so sure. Any advice is welcome. Thanks
