I have my appt with pysch next week. I was wondering if anyone here has been in the same boat.
Basically I went through very stressful situation for over 2 months, like my baby being diagnosed with rare disease and treating him is a 24/7. I lost over 10lbs due to decreased appetite from anxiety. Finally went to docs and had seen psych. They put me on xanax and it worked like a miracle. With .5mg I was able to eat like a monster and gain my weight back. I currently take .5mg on most days and some days 1.5mg
Now I have another issue with work and my anxiety is back, the 1mg is not cutting it anymore, due to tolerance and stress issue.
Is it dangerous to suggest doc to increase my dosage to 2mg for a few months until things settle down? Ideally I would like to stay on 1mg for a few years and stay active with CBT sessions, exercise and diet.
