I have been taking xanix .50mg 3 times a day for anxiety and panic attacks. I take One at 8am, one at 5pm and the third 11.30pm.Been on them now for aabout 4 weeks. It seems that from about 2in the afternoon till i go to bed i'm ok.But starting at 5 in the morning i wake up with rapid heart pounding and palpitations of the heart(but at least my chest pain is now gone)I get up walk around and breath then everything slows down and i go back to bed and fall asleep. This same things happens again shortly after 6 then again around 7 and finally at 8 when i get up and take my xanix. then i feel like i drank several cups of coffee till about 2 in the afternoon then i'm ok . I have tried to double my xanix at night like the one dotor told me to do but it didn't help any and made me feel worse like a hang over all the next day. Then another dr told me i was taking to much at night so i cut it in half only to wake up at 2am and at 4am feeling really bad with chest pains so i end up taking the other half . it lasted to the 6.30 routine and again after 7 and again at 8 when i took my normal dose again. On dr tried to take me off completely and put me on 20mg of paxil. i was sooooo wired up and had such bad panic attacks by 2 in the morning then i started to halucinating etc till my husband found me and got me back on xanix. called the doctor in the morning and they said stay on xanix no paxil till i could come in and see another dr. This one wants to put me on welbutrin with xanix and then switch xanix later for klonopin. A nurse friend of mine said that if i have rapid heart beats and skipping and i have that type of aniety welbutrin would give me a seziure and don't take it wait till you see a physciatrist. He will know which meds for me to try and then also get me off xanix as it is additive. Has anyone else had problems with xanix like this at nigth time till noonish ?
