dose



Well the Drs.want me to try the taper method first with a decrease of 60mgs per week ( 2 pills per day ) . I am down to 150mgs in the am to get going, maybe 90mgs in the afternoon and 120 mgs at night before bed. I am going to see if they will refill my ambein CR perscription for sleeping but take a low dose so you are not groggy in the am. The Xanax is working much better then the lorazapam for my panic attacks.

Careful with the Xanax. If it's short term while you get off the contin, you're cool. I am taking Lorazapam/Ativan while tapering off Hydros and it builds up in the system quick and provides relief for much longer than xanax. Xanax is wonderful for an immediate relief from panic attacks. Though, unfortunately, I would get stuck using too much xanax if I had it. :( You just don't want to go through withdraws from a benzo like xanax OR ativan/lorazepam. I am going to have to taper off Ativan and I dread that almost more than the Hydro w/ds. I am almost off of Hydros though, thank goodness! Lots of luck. You can do it!
