    Default Xanax 1mg for 10 years at bedtime

    I’ve been on Xanax 1 mg for 10 years at bedtime. Recently started having increased anxiety in the afternoon. Thought is was my GAD flaring up so out myself on Zoloft 50mg. Question is a hard one. Is the anxiety related to maybe finally becoming tolerant of the Xanax or is it my GAD?

    This is a tough one. It could be either or both. The only thing I can say is that Xanax is typically only effective short term. It's highly addictive and our tolerance increases quickly. You should probably talk to the doctor who prescribes it for you and discuss your options. After having taken if for as long as you say I wouldn't be a bit surprised if it's just not effective anymore. If you need to change meds, your doctor can help you with a very slow taper and perhaps giving you something else while you work on that. Not sure what the answer is and I'm not a doctor but that's where I'd start. It's dangerous to stop any benzo abruptly so don't do anything without your doctor being on board.

    Best wishes.

    Peace,
