Hi everyone, I am new here to Blue Light and I have an issue. For about 12 years I have been taking Xanax 1 mg three times daily for panic disorder and I'm not getting any relief out of it anymore and my doctor will not increase the dosage. My new doctor doesn't even want me on benzos but he says I've been on them for far too long that I cannot stop. I was just wondering, is there any way for me to take my Xanax so that it hits me harder so I can sleep at night? I live in a halfway house and therefore could not snort or plug the pill but the nurse has stated that sublingual use could intensify the effects for me. Could I just get some hard candy and leave the Xanax under my tongue to get more of an effect? Thank you all so much for your help, it is very much appreciated.
