Quite a few years ago I was in a car accident and having major issues sleeping and not getting anxiety. My doc gave me I think a weeks worth of 25mg Xanax and then some stuff for sleeping which isn’t important. I didn’t get sleepy from Xanax, I felt like I could actually function and get through the day. I believe I also started off with half a pill and then just took a normal dose.

BUT

I hardly get drowsy from anything that has the potential to make me drowsy. Not even some super strong muscle relaxers I was on just recently or the pain killers that I was prescribed either. So, I may just be a rarity or it may be how Xanax actually works.

I would refrain from taking it until tonight when you’re home with no where to go (no driving) but before your normal time to go to bed so you can see if it actually makes you drowsy or not.

You will not be sleepy.. however i don’t think .25mg works for me.. i think i need something higher.

If I take 1/2 of a 0.25mg pill, I’m pretty sleepy. If I took the whole thing, I would probably not be safe to drive. I would definitely try it on a weekend day first!

1/2 of a .25 is very low dose. I also agree for you to try first on a weekend. I usually take a whole 1.0 pill for anxiety. That will make me sleepy. If I need to take the edge off and stay awake, I take 1/2 which is .5.

I don’t think 1/2 of a .25 would do anything for me.

@peanuthead:  Yeah, everyone’s different!! I take one Benadryl and pass out too! I’m very small and sensitive to drugs and alcohol.
