Still looking for answers? Try searching for what you seek or ask your own question.

Try 3mg Xanax XR. They're kind of like super Klonopin. They are slow release so they keep you asleep all night. From what I understand 1/2 of the med is released right away and the rest is slowly feleazed over the next 10-12 hours.

i agree with you lemon xanax usually kicks in in 20mins and effects are gone in 2 hours.

I'm a 19 year old female and I weigh under 100 pounds, I take 20 mg of adderall in the am and CAN'T sleep at nigh I took 1mg of Xanax at 11pm and 1 more mg at 230am and it's 5 am and still can't sleep, anyone else use anything that workes better for them then Xanax ?

Can I go up or does it take time to get in your system? Hey sc333. He dc'd the klonopin and I am going off 2 hrs. I took 2mg tonight per order and it has been 2 hr. Im running the course trying new meds to help me sleep.

Yep, I understand, no offense taken.

my body has never been a by the book body and this whole med change has had me in circles. Im hoping the 1/2 will be ok. I took 1/2 of one and lay the other 1/2 out. Thanks to everyone for the info. Thanks LaurieShay~I felt dizzy this evening and nauseated so I lay down before a meeting. Im wondering if this works should I l my dr if I can take this as needed or do you have to be on it or off. I slept peacefully for another 3 1/2 hours (not on purpose) but feel really good now. It helps to hear other peoples experiences.

Everyone's body chemistry is different - and please please please give the meds several weeks unless you're having life-threatening side effects - even several days isn't enough for your body to start effectively balancing itself out with the new chemistry. I can't l you how many people in my AA meetings have gone off their meds after a few days or weeks because "they're not working" or "I'm fine now" - and end up using and sometimes dead!!!.

Trust me, all the others are just weak in comparison. Insomnia totally sucks so I sure hope you get an answer and are able to finally get some rest!. 2 mg is a fairly low dose. I've tried them all. About increasing your dosage. Xanax is considered the gold standard for anxiety/ insomnia. I take up to 6 mg some nights but definiy bring this up to your Dr first. Talk to your Dr.

Again, it is done by individual and what your doctor prescribes. There is no recommended dose for sleep in the literature.

It takes me about 20 minutes to fall asleep but this me and you may need more or some thing added to it check with your doctor before you do anything. I would let your doctor know before going up. I take 1 and half mg and that puts me to sleep. I can't sleep with less.

That is an insanely high dose. Please do not listen to the guy that said 6mg. At under 100 pounds please go see a doctor, your not sleeping because your underweight and your body is hungry.

Great info Laurie, I'm sure you are correct. Meant no offense, just offering my personal experience with Xanax. xx Lara.

The initial effects can be as minimal as. As we know, everyones metabolism is different and other meds etc can affect the absortion of the benzo. So these are averages from the clinical studies. 5 hours. I was reporting on the MAXIMUM blood levels being reached in UPTO 2 hours. The information I quote is from to pharmokenetics reported in the literature.

Please be careful when you arise at night and in the morning until you get use this medication. Yes, dizziness, lightheadedness, and drowsiness are common side effects of the xanax.

Laurie Shay is right, and it is a trial and error thing. everyone is different. Blaze22.

Thanks for the prayers! I do not like having to take medicine, even Advil, but I know if I need it I want the least amount. Is it normal to feel shaky and unstable at night when you get up or the morning?.

If the xanax is immediate release as opposed to xr (extended release), it is ok to cut in half also. If the prescription bottle says xanax xr then best to not cut in half. Take care girl, Laurie. It is ok to take xanax as needed.

The xanax will take upto two hours after taking it to reach maximum blood level. The more you take the greater the chance of physical and emotional dependency. By the way, do not know if you smoke but smoking will decrease the absorption of xanax. If two mgs is what the doctor prescribed, I don't recommend you take more.

I dont know if it was because I was sleep deprived or what. I just thought if 2 did not work I might need to call the d. I will keep you updated.~Sharon Hey Sharon. I dont smoke, I just dont sleep! Thank you again for all your help. Thanks for all the responses! I slept like a baby. I took one around 730 and when I was not asleep in 2 hours I became Nervous so I did take the other one and was asleep in no time. I will try the one tonight.

Respectfully, Laurie, I disagree a bit on the time it takes affect someone, but that is just my experience. Hi sc333, I ususally feel 1 mg of xanax within 20 minutes.

I think you are smart to try the lowest dose possible before trying a further dose. I prayed you would, lol. Glad to know you got a good nights sleep.
