A few questions - have you been taking the Klonopin, Adivan and Xanax doses exactly as prescribed? Many doctors won't give you more and you have to be REAL CAREFUL about exceeding the prescribed dose. If you have been very responsible with your meds, the dr who put you on these meds for the past 7 yrs should give you enough Xanax to last you until you can see this new doctor. Not doing so is very unresponsible on his part, as stopping any of these meds (benzodiazepines) abruptly can cause serious side effects, the most severe being seizures. If the dr. won't give you enough to get you thru, about all you can do is carefully take a little less Xanax each day, which will probably incr. the anxiety, to make it last until your new dr appt. I can really empathize. It is very scarey. What dose of Xanax have you been on, and for what exactly?
