I was on 200Mgs of Zoloft at one time. 150 a day is not unusual.
If anxiety is also an issue for you then may I suggest a mood stabilizer such as Lithium to help balance that out. There are others, but I find Lithium to be the most effective.
As for the Xanax... Yes it can be addicting. I am actually addicted to Xanax and it isn't any fun at all. I take 3Mgs a day. Once you go past the 1.50Mg per day on Xanax then you risk addiction. Just try not to go past 1.50 a day because once that Xanax gets a hold of you good then it's so hard to get off.
Thanks, I will try to stay off the xanax. It is so strange. Some days I feel great and don't need it at all and others I feel like I'm going to melt down from anxiety. Hopefully the zoloft will kick in soon.
I think that's a good sign that your not addicted to Xanax, "Yet."
If you were addicted then just skipping a day would cause really bad agitation, shivers, cold sweats, and severe anxiety.
I have tried so many times to taper off Xanax, but my body is just so used to the high dosage I take that the withdrawl is horrible.
Thanks again. I'm sorry you have had so much trouble with xanax. I wish you all the luck in the world. Take care. Thanks for replying to me.
