Here are some general (key word, general) rules of thumb for Xanax use: Never dose more than twice a week. Never dose on consecutive days. One day on (of use), three days off. It sounds shitty, it sounds rigorous, but that's a good way to avoid tolerance and dependence issues, neither of which you want.

I keep it down to twice a week for myself, along with tolerance breaks where I'll go a few weeks at a time without even taking any at all.
Eventually, benzodiazepines can cause memory and cognitive impairments, as well as dissociative feelings and a host of other mental problems. It works too well and that's why it's a problem. You cannot spend your whole life taking it, but that's what you will want to do once you get into the habit of taking it regularly.
I'm not prone to hyperbole or trying to scare you--it's just the nature of the beast.
Since I started the initial post she only takes .5 about 3 times a week tops. She goes to bed each night without it and if after an hour she is still awake then she will take one and fall instantly to sleep. I wish Xanax still worked like that for me. I'm on 5 mgs. a day and it doesn't make me tired at all. It just makes.
Oh and I also take 12.5 mg of Ambien at bedtime as well.

She needs to get her own prescription if she needs it that badly. It is never ok to give someone else you're medication. I'm just giving you my opinion. Please don't think I'm coming down on you. I know all about them. Dear taylorco105, I am not here to judge anyone. I just think it would be wise if she got her own prescription. And it is illegal to do so anyway. Ruth. God Bless. If anything should happen.it would be in your hands, and you would feel bad.

The last three of the 17 days, I took xanax 3 days in a row. 5 to 1mg at the most, with 1.25 mg being the most (only taken one day). can I stop taking it right away? Is it dangerous? Sorry to bother everyone with this question, but I've been going through a lot in my life, with a recent break up (the relationship was 10 years) and other life problems. Thank you so much for your help!. Hi everyone, I've been using Xanax from January 31st to present day on and off for about 17 days total.
Okay I started seeing a new psych who wants me take my small dose of Xanax that I usually only take about once or twice a week when I am really bad THREE times a day - b/c he said this will help to keep me calm all the time. My dose is only half of .25 three times a day. He says this is a very small dose.
