Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Over time your body may get used to xanax dose.

Or your circumstances may have changed causing more anxiety symptoms.

Also change in script can cause such problems as well.

Hence you can take both together to see if it works like before.

Your doctor should adjust the dose if needed.
