I do not, however, like tapering as the withdrawals are unpleasant. I did taper down and still it works for me! I will probably be on it the rest of my life, but I don't care because I have not reached tolerance w/d in all these years, and even if I go up in dose, it will be around 2.5mg. or so. Just my experience.

My pdoc wants me to take Xanax as other AD's don't work for me. How much do you take and how often each day? Does it make you feel very tired and if so, does the sedation pass?
Thanks so much, Karen
