me & xanax used to have a love/hate relationship, so I may have some input for you:) However, did you mean 125mgs OR 1.25mgs? I am familiar with 1.25 and i don't think it would be possible to take 125mgs, but i just wanted to make sure before I anwser.
It is half of a .25 so therefor .125 mg. Not alot at all. Half of lowest dose.
You and I are doing exactly the same thing. My prescription is for .25 mg. and I usually try taking just half. I do not take it every day, but sometimes two or three days in a row. Neither you nor I are at risk for addition. We both take small doses and we take them erratically, not on a maintenance basis. I find Xanax very helpful.
Thank you for sharing. It seems like I shouldn't worry too much but you read these posts it makes me wonder. I have social anxiety and I always worry I'll be required to speak or have attention brought to me which I hate, hate, hate. So I take my .125 when I go where I think that could happen. If I didn't have them, I would not go. Now have to look for a job and I will need my .125 even for an interview. Does slow down the brain a bit, but hopefully I can at least speak. I experienced an interview was I was 18 years old (now 63) and I was not able to speak.....too nervous, voice cracked, and oddly enough I got the darn job!
I started at .25 many years ago, dropped it, started again but always AS NEEDED. Four years ago I took .25 three times a day to experiment. That is the recommended mininimum dose for old folk. In five days I was hallucinating and had suicidal visions. But the med has served me well . I'm up to .50 at times now and trying extended release. I have no worries about addiction. I begin to think that the fearful ecperinces on the forums are from symtpms people feel WHEN THEY TRY TO STOP.
I see no reason to stop my low, as-needed dose.
i should have said: 'when they try to stop from much higher doses then we take'
