It is possible xanax xr is not working well for you.
xanax xr is a sustained release medication and sometimes may not be absorbing well.
Hence, this may cause delayed action or less efective dosing in your body
It is better to switch to the xanax short acting tablets after discussing with your doctor.
Also nowadays, it is recommended to consider a SSRi to control anxiety symptoms besides xanax or ativan.
SSRI provides better and sustained action over long term.
Common SSRIs used for anxiety are paroxetine, sertraline, duloxetine.
You should discuss this option with your doctor as well.
