does anyone know how to get a stronger mg for xanax, i have asked numerous times and still keeps me on the lowest dosage of xanax there is. i have had terrible anxiety this last year and xanax actually works, i become happy again and life is wonderful. i also become motivated to get up and try new things for my condition (chronic back/neck pain)like pillates or just stretching.

im 45 and really miss the quality of life i had before the onset of my neck (DDD) and back has sciatica and lymphomas that are terribly painful. the xanax really helps my outlook on life which is so nice.

if anyone can reply on what to tell my doc without making her think i just wanna get high, i really believe in this drug and have become somewhat tolerate to the current dosage and would like my doctor to increase qty or mg, either one would help


  • Denise,

    What you could do is print your post to us and bring it to your doctor. I feel it spells out pretty well what you're going through, and what you're feeling.

    Sometimes when we get to our doctor, our verbiage doesn't come out right. Your post is pretty clear and to the point. Please let us know how it goes.

    Again, Welcome aboard!!

  • there are some great anti-depressants that also have anxiety reducing properties. you needn't necessarily need more xanax, but perhaps another medicine to complement the xanax.
  • all I can say is wtf 'indoroids'...
    a bit funny, because when I went to indonesia on holiday, I couldn't buy codeine anywhere- you need a prescription! (In australia you can get it over-the-counter...) and the pharmacists I asked looked at me like I was some kind of junkie! -and you can buy pseudoephedrine like it's nothing! What a mixed up country!!
